I dare say that as I play with more and more of these LED matrix panels i’ll come up with multiple ways of mounting them together. If you have more than one panel and you are bench testing then you will know about the struggle of holding these things up whilst testing.
A year or so ago we managed to import a 1200 x 1200 3 axis Chinese built CNC router into Australia. Obviously you get what you pay for, this beast came in at under $7k landed. However the build quality has been pretty good with only minor issues.
Did I mention that we just took possession of our new laser cutter? After a 4 -5 week wait the new Redsail X700 laser from china finally rocked up. And to be honest, first impressions have been pretty good.
The idea behind this was to create an aesthetically pleasing frame for an old screen that I had lying around. No chance was I going to create a standard boring square frame and hang this on the wall.
I have embarked on a journey to create a Raspberry Pi HAT for a little project of mine and I wanted to share a couple of things that I have created which may help you speed up your development time in the future.
Never used a soldering iron? Does the art of soldering seem a bit of a mystery to you? Have you tried your hand at soldering and found it difficult to produce results you?re happy with? Do you feel your soldering technique could do with some improvement?
Finding the IP address of a freshly imaged Raspberry Pi can sometimes be a PITA. Especially if you do not have access to a spare HDMI cable, monitor, mouse and keyboard. In this article we will cover off on a few methods to identify your Raspberry Pi IP address on your network.
For us linux “late-adopters” it can be a daunting prospect of carrying out a routine file transfer to our Raspberry Pi from our Windows machine. However the learning curve is not so great. There are plenty of easy methods of achieving this feat.
After building a few LED matrices from LED strip lighting and soldering a ton of connections, I decided to give these pre-fabricated LED matrix modules a shot. After a bit of research it turns out that using only a Raspberry Pi and a fully functional Library from the Legend Henner Zeller, you can accomplish just about anything.
