Hi. First off. Thanks to all who have worked so hard putting this project together. I know that I'm lacking in the imagination department but what can I use all this in. Last months project I was able to use it for a scouting project. I understand the circuit well enough but I go back to what can I use it in. Can I incorporate into a circuit to count up or down? Maybe some sort of a clock? I don't know. Any ideas or help would be great. Thanks again to the folks who put it together.
Ok I get it. I'll give it a whorl. Thanks again.
Thanks again for you help. I got it going. So cool and Learning a little more on programming.
Bugging you one more time. Plan "A" 8x8 not working so well but for Plan "B" I also bought an 8x8 by 4 long ( SainSmart MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module 4 in one for Arduino ). At the end of your sketch you write "characters must be declared rotated 90 degrees ..." As I am new to this and want to have this ready for Scouts on Tuesday, How do I declare the rotation? Thanks so much for your help.
IgorF2I've gotten all the parts in but was wondering if this project will work with a Arduino Pro Mini? No big deal if it doesn't. I have only one extra Duo but a couple extra Pro Mini'sThanks for all your (and your teams) work.
Bugging you one more time. Plan "A" 8x8's not working so well. I guess I went too cheap on parts. However Plan "B" I also bought (at the same time) a " SainSmart MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module 4 in one for Arduino ". At the end of your sketch you wrote "Characters must be declared rotated 90 degrees..." As I am new to this and want to have this ready for Scouts on Tuesday, How do I declare the rotation? Your help is VERY much appecerated.
IgorF2I got the parts on order. Can't wait to put build it. Going to use it in a pumpkin for my Cub Scouts. Thanks for your hard work. I'm just getting started myself.
