2.FabNet

Fabnet is a multi-drop network, meaning that multiple modules (a.k.a. nodes) share a single set of communication wires.

FabNet转接板

功能:

  1. 连接电脑 Connect to PC with FTDI USB
  2. 连接驱动模块 Connect to the Fabnet(Gestalt Node)
  3. 接入电源 Provides power at two voltages 12V-24V/7.5V

    2.1 Create a bridge board that adapts that cable to Fabnet.

    Download the board files from here:
    http://mtm.cba.mit.edu/fabinabox/dev/fabnet/files.html

2.2 Download a firmware to Gestalt Node

下载固件到驱动模块(出厂时是已经默认下载了)
Here is the source and hex file for the node firmware: https://github.com/imoyer/086-005

Process

3.制终端软件 wxGestalt

wxGestalt is a very, very simple IDE for controlling Gestalt nodes in Python

  1. Machine Setup

  2. Identify the nodes

  3. IDE

  4. Run the machine

Problem

1.The power wire become hot and melt

1.pi

Solution: Use a better wire
2.pi

Improvements

  1. I thought we can redesign the PCB,because they are too much wire to connect.
  2. We should put radiator on the PCB board.
