Re: New run of orbshields

Hi kenyee,



... won't do this, as it's only one specific PC -- and rechanging this sort of intra-systemic stuff can provoke other issues as well :roll:

Re: New run of orbshields

Hi Vic, ... regarding the problems with installing the orbotron drivers on one of my Win7 64Bit-PC's - all other PC's and notebooks with Win7 64Bit I could get hands on, did it -- so I've give it up on this one :roll: This driver-fuzz seems to be related to the different USB-handling of older (1280)...

Re: New run of orbshields

... I've changed the windows setting to "accept unsigned driers", but my Win7 64Bit told me, that it can't do anything with this sort of *.inf file :-/

Re: troubles communicating with SB 5000 ser in terminal

... heard the same about 5V-sources with not sifficient amperages (below 300mA?).



Have running my 4000 Flx's fine with 'real' serial ports in a virtual-box-WinXP under Win7-ultimate, but need the connexion adapter with external 5V wall-plug for RS232-USB-converters ...

Re: New run of orbshields

Hi Vic, I'm soldering fine-pitch SMT's not with paste and heating or reflow, but with 0.3mm solder wire and a sharp tipped solder-pen without problems. Removing SMT-IC's is easy with a thin nickel sheet (e.g. from radio-security-tags) with pushing it under the pins while heating them with the solder...

Re: New run of orbshields

... my mill is accurate to 12.5 microns per step and the spindle with 22000rpm fast enough for finepitch-engraving with carbide bits ... only my time-scheduling is problematic :? -- otherwise I'll offer to mill som double-sided prototypes for testing ... Later this summer I'll build a much more prec...

Re: New run of orbshields

[quote="vputz"]You'd have to flash the chip yourself, though.[/quote] ... I have a JTAG (two-wire) adapter with 10pin-header and maybe a 6-pin converter too - but your 6-pin header seems to be only ISP, no JTAG? Have an older ISP from another AVR-bot project too, will check, if it's working with the...

Re: New run of orbshields

Hi Vic,



you can send me a kit with loose SMD-parts -- can attach them on my own with microscope support ... my until now smallest 'soldered' connectors were 30 microns wide and wires with 10 microns diameter - but this is a bit different from 'normal' workflow :wink:

Re: New run of orbshields

Re: New run of orbshields

Hi Vic, can you post/sell me one or two of the boards? It can be as preassembled (not soldered) kit without housing, if it's easier - can populate and shell it on my own :wink: In the next days/weeks I'm testing/selecting some HID's for manipulating+aligning the separate parts after 3D-scanning, so ...

Re: New run of orbshields

... for 'virtual XP-modes' on Win7 - I've successfully used the serial SpaceOrb on a WinXP in a VirtualBox on a Win7 Ultimate with the standard drivers.



But too, want to use it in Win7 native for CAD applicarions or space-gaming :wink:

Re: New run of orbshields

... what's with using a flatbed-protter for laser-engraving coated PCB's? I've got a stable flatbed-plotter with vacuum-table for 50€ and have plans to equip it with different laserheads for engraving or SLS. Attached an image of the plotter and a small laserdiode-head+driver with a (blue) 445nm-dio...
