Thanks

This is great. I was working on a hexagon tile, but since you were able to finish a design already, I don't need to keep hacking away at it lol!
Though I don't see any stl or f3d files?

What did you use for the reflective corners?

So I just tried bending the sides down like that and the solder broke connecting the lights. Did you have that issue?

I'm very impressed with how thin you were able to get yours and how tight the strip is in there. I couldn't tell from the videos how you managed to solder the lights. It looks like they wrap underneath.

I have this strip too - the fine pitch soldering is tricky but not impossible, but be aware that if you're using a stock v2 moodlite model, the LED strip is slightly too wide (by about 1mm) so you'll need to carefully trim it.

Thanks for the advice.   already started modelling in solidworks a ground up version.  I'm going to emulate as much as the original design as possible and only print the base.

Hey SuperDave, I also have a strip of 144/m LEDs I'm trying to build mine with. Have you made any progress on a design specific to these strips?
Also do anyone else that may have used the 144/m strips. What did you use to cut the strips, I'm having difficulty cutting them so I can have enough contact to solder onto both sides.

moodlite Software / Re: Error when uploading to ESP8266 module
« on: March 14, 2019, 02:16:42 PM »
I was able to solve this issue. I did use a different computer and followed the same process, except this time before I plugged the ESP8266, I downloaded and installed the USB to UART driver from here https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers

I uploaded the Moodlite sketch and SPIFFS to two ESP8266 modules without issue.

However, my experience deviated from the instructions provided https://github.com/spigotx/Moodlite/wiki/First-setup-of-Moodlite in  that after rebooting the devices, they did not show up with WiFi names of Moodlite but were something like 'ESP_C70670' which I assume is related to the device name.

I won't be able to test the ability to configure the devices wifi connection to my home network until later today, I'll update this after then.

Update: When I got home I downloaded the same driver I linked to, then I tried to upload Moodlite and it gave the same errors again.
I used the same settings as I did earlier from a computer at my work. I also tried 3 different USB cables. So I'm assuming it's something with my computer's settings in some manner?

Hi!

i had that error a lot of time, and i just try again and it worked fine, except one time that my board was broken and have to ask amazon for a replacement
Am I supposed to a firmware to the device before I can upload the moodlite to it, or download/install a driver?

moodlite Software / Error when uploading to ESP8266 module

I followed Vader's setup and got to step 7. When I try to upload I get errors:
Code: [Select]
warning: espcomm_sync failed
error: espcomm_open failed
error: espcomm_upload_mem failed
error: espcomm_upload_mem failed
See attached screenshot for my settings.
I didn't change anything in the settings as Static IP is already set to false.

Do I need to flash some other kind of firmware to the device first? I just took it out of the box, plugged it in and tried to upload the moodlite to it.
I've tried hitting the reset button and trying to upload again but nothing.
I bought the ones that were linked to in the original build log https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010N1SPRK

Okay great, I'll give that a shot. Thanks
(P.s. I think it might be beneficial to others that are oblivious like me to add in the setup directions how you need to plug in the controller to program it lol)

Have a look on that: https://github.com/spigotx/Moodlite/wiki/First-setup-of-Moodlite

I did read that, thank you for making that. However I didn't read anything about what kind of cable I need to plug the controller to my computer, or maybe I'm making it more complicated than it is?
Do I only need to provide it power from the PSU as CdRsKuLL shows in the wiring diagram and then I upload the sketch to it over Wifi?

Did you ever post the instructions on programming the controller? I sear I saw it before somewhere but I cannot find the instructions on how to do it anymore.

Thanks!

Lord Vader's post.
https://github.com/spigotx/Moodlite/wiki/Preparing-Arduino-IDE

Sorry if I missed where this part is mentioned, but I can't find instructions on how you connect your computer to the controller to then upload the sketch to?

moodlite Design / Re: Laser-cut variant.
« on: March 08, 2019, 01:42:08 PM »
I've got the K40's bigger brother, the SH-G530, it should cut up some moodlite parts like a boss!
I'm interested in buying a laser cutter. I wasn't able to find this model through google search, do you have a link to it somewhere?
I'd also like to know the difference going from a 40w to 50w means in terms of the machines capabilities. I don't want to derail this posts topic though, so send me a DM please.
