moodlite Software / Re: Testing WLED
« on: December 07, 2019, 01:18:00 PM »
UPDATE:
Using Ledfx I was able to add sound reaction, the caveat is that it needs a computer or other device to listen and send the patterns to the esp controller attached to the leds.

moodlite Software / Testing WLED
« on: December 01, 2019, 11:45:34 PM »
Hello everyone!
I just wanted to let you know I just tried using WLED  as the software for Moodlite and is being very interesting.
I deeply love Moodlite implementation, but doing MQTT right has become an issue for me.
Using WLED eased a lot of the technical and coding  need that were beyond my knowledge, I modified the wled 0.8.6 to output to 2 pins, gpio 2 and 3 this way I have certain flexibility doing my projects .
The advantages are:
  • No YAML File modification to integrate.
  • Direct control of patters and basic functions on home assistant.
  • Huge number of patters.
  • Electric overload monitored by software (it tries to keep power usage inside of a defined threshold).
  • It syncs patters between separate devices.


below some pictures from the app, home assistant and my LED setups.

moodlite Design / Re: MQTT Support

MQTT Kind of works.
I am using it along with HA and love it, but every time I have a power outage or fluctuation, the settings on the Moodlite controller mess up.

Doing 60 leds through the controller seems like pretty stressing for the device, though I don't know the specifications of the one you are using.
If you are having problems connecting to the web interface or controlling options, it has happened to several of us on V3, this version looks amazing, but gets glitchy after a few days.

You can do it through the MQTT protocol that is already operating within the code.
The only drawback is that you will need to setup an MQTT Broker to achieve this.

Hello I am also using an ender 3 and have a 22 tile setup.
You can print full size, just rotate the pice slightly and you can make it, also make sure you dont have so skirts stealing your building capacity, I strongly recommend it, otherwise you will have problems fitting the servo cable connectors.
Also for experience I prefer using a 2mm brimm, it hepls prevent warping on big models like this; with PLA is not a big issue, but I have had some on the corners of this project.

About loosing 1 print, don't worry, we all have gone through it.

moodlite Chitchat / Re: Brightness and speed control not working
« on: August 17, 2019, 02:14:09 AM »
Try using chrome in incognito mode from a PC, it let me use almost all the functions.
Use NTP and set it a modest time to work, 18:00 - 23:00 in my case.
Is not perfect but at least it lets me enjoy it, set as default works this way, at least for me.

Im glad it helped.
Hopefully somebody can debug this behavior.
I love V3, but it's a little bit unresponsive.

Having the same experience using V3, worked fine for a while, then some stuff stopped working, at the moment I can only make changes using chrome from laptop with incognito mode.
If you have time, try falling back to V2 and check if the behavior is corrected; it never caused me problems.

moodlite Software / Re: moodlite software [3.0] Release
« on: June 01, 2019, 06:54:50 PM »
First of all, thank you for the release, I love it, the new patterns are great, the UI is simple but nice.
I think I am finding some abnormal behavior.
It didn't let my wife's phone to turn manually on/off, it just didn't get the action.
After a few days of use, it stopped accepting changes form my phone and then computer.
I was able to turn on/off using an incognito tab, but after a few uses, it is no longer working.

If there is anything I can do to debug the behavior just let me know, I'd love to help improve this wonderful project.

I got V3 working, I really like the new patterns and additions.

But it seems is a little bit glitchy.
I have problems setting changes on manual power on/off, I set a schedule so it is on while we are awake during the night, but is not nice to know some of the control we used to have is not working right.

I had similar problems at the beginning, did Erase EEPROM and Erase SPIFFS.
Went over the whole proccess again and figured out it was my fault, I forgot to upload the new sketch to the ESP8266 board step.

moodlite Electronics / Re: Maximum units?
« on: February 26, 2019, 02:58:55 PM »
Based on other dicussions.
Each led at full birght white is rated at 60mA.
If you use 1 LED per side then 60x3 we are talking about .18A per tile so you can power ~5 tiles per 1A on your PSU doing maximum bright.
This is not considering voltage drop (I donīt have so much knowledge on that area).

My setup is a 22 panels, 1 led per side, that in theory draws 3.96A and I am using a 4A PSU without problems yet.

Let's talk 3D printers... / Re: My new toy - JGAURORA A5
« on: February 19, 2019, 11:48:32 PM »
I always give the bed a wipe with alcohol before each print. Sticks great then. :-)

Agree on the bed cleaning on each print.
22 successful panels using hatchbox 1.75 white pla
70c bed
room temp usually 30c but interestingly the best results were with room 27c over night, maybe the fresher air helped the pla to harden better.

Build Finished!
Waiting for the sound reaction code to be implemented. ;D
