The 123D Team at Autodesk has released some new updates to their latest addition to the 123D family. The main updates include the ability to accurately simulate capacitors and inductors in real time and display signals on a virtual Oscilloscope. There are new of components that can be simulatable in the breadboard editor. They’ve included logic chips, transistors, and a couple Arduino-compatible boards. They’re building the simulation models for each new component, so if you have a request, drop them a suggestion!
Design circuits in a web browser? Check. Simulate buttons, motors, resistors, and LEDs? It’s got that too. Let you write, compile, and simulate Arduino-compatible code? Yes, yes and YES. Accurately simulate capacitors and inductors in real time? New! Display signals on a virtual Oscilloscope? Also New! With so many new components and the oscilloscope, you now have the power to take your circuits to the next level — it’s time to build a servo controlled robotic hand, or a techno sound making motion sensor. The power is in your hands. Go forth, design, simulate and create!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
