Solenoid, Pump, Motor, LCD
This week's mission is to add an output device to a microcontroller board and program it to do something.
Soft Robot Toolkit
I want to test arounf soft robot, trying to see if it's a good material for my final project. The soft robot toolkit provides very good open source files and tutorials.
I 3D printed several molds. I used Mold Star 20T Silicon rubber.
It's hard to get the silicon rubber out. I destroyed one of the molds to get it out. All the rubbers here are failed to inflate as air blows in. I guess maybe the material is a bit thick and hard. I'll try Ecoflex 20 and DragonSkin 10 when they arrived.
Look up datasheet
Design a little board
I made a little helper board to plugin the solenoid to my microcontroller board.
Connect to my microcontroller board
I want to try to program the LCD with Neil's code.
Make .hex file
Board connection problem
When I try to prepare the board for writing into it, it says initialization failed, double tries connections. I've tried to debug as much as I could, but was unable to get it right.
