I’ve been working on this for over a week and to be honest, failing. The driver boards I soldered at the Hackspace were a breeze and despite having the same soldering iron at home now I’m really struggling. I’m going to head to the space on Wednesday for open hack night, take my kit and […]
After a trip to the Reading Hackspace and a few hours with one of the excellent soldering irons they have I’ve made short work of the two dual stepper motor controllers for my 3d printer. The only components missing are the drivers which are ESD sensitive so I’m fitting once the main controller board […]
Update: I’ve posted a new project, Controlling a Syma S107G Using an Xbox 360 Controller that you may be more interested in. 🙂
This is a project I’ve had in mind for a while to get me back into coding on the Netduino again, it’s […]
As if by magic IEEE Spectrum have posted a guide to setting up your workbench for electronics work, great minds think alike it seems! Peg board wasn’t something I had considered for my build but after seeing this post it or somthing similar is a no brainer.
In my first post last year I stated that my New Years resolution was to build more stuff, the Jukebox lights are wired up and that project is more or less done. One of my other ambitions mentioned was to design and build a UAV.
Now, I’m a Microsoft guy. It’s what I know and […]
I’m not finished yet however the lights are in the Jukebox and I thought I’d post a pic of a test I performed by hardwiring the lights to be green;
It’s the first time since I’ve owned the Jukebox that it has been lit up like this, not long after buying […]
I’ve just finished a working prototype for the Jukebox lighting control, doesn’t look like much at the minute but with the right RGB LED driver in place (I’m thinking three logic level MOSFETs may do the job) then this project is only a wiring job and a glue gun away from installation! The C# code […]
