Digital scale with ESP8266
In this project we will see how to build a digital scale that uses the ESP8266 microcontroller with a load cell (and its HX711 converter). The scale is able to measure weight with gram accuracy, the sensor we are using is limited to 5Kg, but you can use one for smaller or larger weights.
As you can see, we use an ESP8266 module which has WiFi functionality, so we have the possibility, in the future, to send the measurement data to a cloud. The code can be changed to, for example, allow the scale to count objects or calculate the volume of a liquid. The structure is completely modeled and printed in 3d and the parts are available to be able to replicate the project even at home.
