Re: Plotter/CNC machine

Hello, Yes I have built CNC machines and 3D printers, they are both essentially the same thing with a different tool on. Here is a 3D printer component that can be simulated in Flowcode. http://www.matrixtsl.com/wiki/index.php?title=Component:_ID_62b6ca37_eb0a_4b5f_b2e1_9a732c4e05ce There is a G Co...

Plotter/CNC machine

Hi there I would like to make a simple plotter/CNC machine out of some old CD-ROM drives using the stepper motors for the X- and Y-axis. I would like it to be able to import simple drawings in bmp or similar formats. I have looked a little at G-code, which could be a great way to enter data to the m...

Changing size of LCD

Hi I have just upgraded to Flowcode ver. 6 from ver. 4. When using an LCD in ver 4 it was possible to change the size and colour of the LCD to smaller and larger sizes than the default 16x2. As I see it. In ver 6 you only are able to choose the EB005 LCD (16x2) - Even when trying to alter this in th...

I have added a new Charlieplexed LED component into Flowcode v6 which should hopefully be available in the upcoming release (6.0.8).

Charlieplexing

Hi

Has anybody done some programming using charlieplexing?
I know how it works, but I would like to see some flowcode programming using charlieplexing.

So if you have done a program and would like to share it, I would be pleased :)

I had some problems getting it to work - I didn't see, the FCD file got the .txt extension, when I saved it :( But WinCommander solved this problem :)

A quick and very dirty fix is this in your flowcode folder in tools go to the AVRDUDEusb folder create another folder called BACK and in to this place your original avrdude.conf file then unzip the attached file into the AVRDUDEusb folder, and try again let me know how you get on if it works theres...

Hello Tomas, There doesn't seem to be a setting on the display you can use to control how the text is displayed but there is an option for custom characters.

Hi I'm here in Holstebro (Denmark) with John. We discussed how to use inverted text on a LCD in Flowcode. Often you would select a topic in a menu showed in a LCD by turning ex a quadrature encoder.
