Redesigned some parts to make them stronger, added spindle control and a new LCD based DRO for axis tracking.This is just a short bed version as I have made many of these and getting short on storage space. The new axis can use DC motors,unipolar or bipolar motors, making them compatible for conventional CNC operation. Still inexpensive to build and fun to make parts with. (read more)
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
This week on the blog we posted nemesis_c’s Light up Snape costume from the forums!
Noticing that there are not very many Circuit Playground tutorials I decided to share a simple one!
But First story time:
My little sister is a BIG Harry Potter Fan.
So, of course she had to go to the midnight release of the newest book: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child.
My mother then volunteered me as tribute to chaperone.
(queu sad violin music)
And then there was light:
Mailman came to my rescue to deliver Circuit Playground
Which meant I had to make a project with it
So the reluctant chaperone was now an eager Potter Fan
I decided to dress up as Snape (since we have similar hairstyles)
Slytherin my way to mashing up a simple program to :
Light up the 10 Neopixels green-to match the Slytherin colors
Every time I tapped on Circuit Playground (read more)
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.
