Title: NodeMCU
Post by: kellogg76 on January 05, 2019, 04:38:26 PM
Whats the reason why you can't use the NodeMCU that has the rectangular chip?

I've got one lying around, and wondered if there was a technical reason before I order a replacement.

Cheers

Hi!
You might have already seen it, but have a look at that thread and scroll all the way down:

It's that the NodeMCU with the rectangular chip is larger and so does not fit into the power unit so well like the smaller one does.

Yep, well spotted LordVader, I've only just posted that up as well.... Different sizes :-)

Thanks, i'll use the one I have for testing and order the smaller one.

I've had a "test fitting" of the larger one in the power block part. When adjusting the screw holes, it should fit as well.

I'll try this out as I already flashed the software onto the larger one for testing. I could not stop the small one rebooting every second  :-[

Done CAD for the larger NodeMCU now. Will print this later today.

Nice work.. :-)  If you are happy to and once you have tested would you mind if I include this within the next release?  Just so the builder has a choice?  I will be adding a read me so will credit you?


Let me know,

Of course! That's why I've done this.
I am happy to contribute at least something!

I've attached the STL to this post. Have fun with it :D

Hey LordVader,


I've been looking at both NodeMCU's an I think we might be able to do them both in the same base.. just have double holes. I'll need to check but if we can I think that's the way we should go. The bigger one should just fit over the four smaller posts if you know what I mean.. so each cover will have two holes.


Let me know what you think?

Good idea, should I give it a try?

For fixing a microphone as soon as this is implemented.
