Pics of your setup or schematic of what you tried to do?
https://www.adafruit.com/product/1203 Maybe looking at the datasheet/manual links might give a clue if you can get at just the raw data. Just curious though, unless you are in some kind of hardware development or algorithms class it seems like you are just reinventing the driver/library for that device. Good luck.

Check the printer configuration in Repetier that it is set for your printer. Again, not knowing what kind of 3D printer you are using, maybe you need the latest or a custom configured version of Repetier. Does your clone use the same profiles as a name brand machine? You should manually be able to move the printhead and test extrude through controls in Repetier if all is configured correctly.
It must be some kind of generic 3D import printer but the firmware, if you have the correct version, may need to be configured for the hot end/thermistor you are using. I don't know if those temperature readings are real or accurate. Is the hotend assembled correctly through the heater core with all the feed tubes clear? Is it getting warm when you get close to it? Check the wiring and for the heated bed/thermistor. Load in a model to actually slice and print.
Any specific help forums for your brand of printer?Did you actually have any model to print and did it get sliced properly to generate gcode before printing?You should go through the bed leveling procedures before attempting to print.Your extruder nozzle may be jammed or the feeder is not adjusted properly to grip the filament. Do you see the extruder motor turn? The filament may not have been pushed all the way into the hot end. You can manually push through some filiament while the hot end is heated up to see some filament oozing out.If you have the correct firmware loaded on your printer, the software must be configured with the right profile for the printer settings.Also, the hot end heats up, then the heated bed has to come to temperature before the actual print. Maybe the erratic xy movement is the head trying to find home position before the print, your endstop switches may not be hooked up or working correctly.Yup, a lot of things to figure out when owning a 3D printer. Good luck.
You are missing defining the variable used for the led pin number before the void setup() lineconst int LED_BUILTIN = 13; // the number of the LED pinor replace "LED_BUILTIN" everywhere with the pin number.You need to find out what digital pin number is used for the onboard LED for your model of arduino, it might be 13 or something else.
When the IDE loads up ready for you to code something, the setup and loop syntax is there for you to expand on. If you are copying a complete sketch from somewhere else, you can clear that out and paste it in. What is there does nothing but should compile/verify if you have the correct settings/port for the arduino that is connected on USB.
Can you post a screenshot of the error or describe what the problem is? When do you get the error - when you hit compile, uploading, or running the program and it is not doing what you expect it to do? The mindreaders will be here shortly.

maybe work something off of this, is that your own security system to mod or is it a leased system with remote monitoring that you can't hack? Good luck.
You could but you have to think how it would be used. It might be uncomfortable to wear with a switch paddle digging into your foot or it might get accidentally triggered by normal movement while walking. You could make a slip case with the a switch spring activated upon release from the case. Hack away.
Thanks. Make first if you need it, then study it for a while.
Very cool idea!! I'm going to have to study it for a while. Thanks. :) - earth2becky
try to make one that clips on to the top of the shoe. that way it has a pressure switch that needs to be released to sound. - muddog15
Learn to use the switch case statement, essentially use your trigger value to do something based on what it is. Good luck.https://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/SwitchCase

You would usually some kind of nut and bolt to pin the joints if you were to make one. Those mass made would have some kind of rivet pin or a bolt where both ends are flared out or mashed to keep it in place. This one might have screws that go into the dowel or an expander plug but only has threads the bottom half of the screw. The upper body of the bolt may be smooth to make it pivot easily in the joint.
There are so many ways to make a carrying bag. You could look a arrow quiver designs, a long simple stuff sack, or copy one of the commercially available ones. How did you want it to close, with a zipper or drawstring, fold over clasp, did you need a carrying strap or handle... Padding could be anything you want from foam to fiberfill batting, use a padded mover's blanket as the base material. Learn to sew... Good luck.
It is covered in Steps 1 to 3 but it is just some wood strips. Take a look through the ible again, the system may have been slow to load and the view all steps button may not have been working.
What is the handle made out of? I read all about the bristle part but did not see how to make the handle.

I can't say if you want to retain the original part for authenticity sake or just want to get the lamp up and running again. If you were to frankenstein the the lamp, it is way easier to figure out how to fit the old knob to a new shaft than to rebuild the switch.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stiffel-Lamp-Parts-Socket-...That may be the same. Your contacts inside may be worn and that old bakelite plastic is disintegrating so it might be better to replace with a modern switch for safety. Good luck.
I would look into talking with some DJs or theater stagehands about DMX controlled stage lighting. There are many commercial built controllers out there and they are for heavy duty lighting. Sure, you could build your own but you probably need it fast and the business can write off the cost.
Can you read the video file names off of the SD card? It might give a clue to what video format the videos are encoded in. Also, is there is a name/numbering scheme to determine the order that they are referenced or played? You might be able to replace a video in the appropriate format. Good luck.
They are sprinkled here and there to spice things up.
"seasomed" :D. Great pun!
haha, I never realized this ible was seasoned with typos.
You had my attention with your opening line: Use LEGO bricks to shape you delicious pork patties. :D
Thanks. Necessity is the mother of invention.

Youse guys, I picked this up at a sale a couple of years back. I still haven't unboxed it because I am working on upgrading the power in the house. Didn't want to even test plug that thing in to play with it, but you know how that goes.
You need to take into account other things when designing...forced duct air or propeller, how many, placement, prop or blade efficiency, electric or gas, gearing or drive transmission, added weight of batteries needed to power, there are youtube videos of others that have built a hoverbike, prototype at least, see what they use. Good luck.
You could browse through the online catalogs of industrial suppliers like grainger or mcmaster-carr or the big alibaba export sites to find something you can use. I don't think there is anything that powerful and compact enough to be salvaged from something at the junk yard. And it helps to be able to weld or have a machine shop available to make all the custom parts and fittings as you go along. Yes, it is an expensive hobby, one of the reasons why I do not have a mini-submarine at the dock...wait, I don't even have a boat...

Ah master, you sensed a disturbance in the force?
You can look up how to make a moisture meter. You can make one with any microcontroller like an arduino which measures the electrical resistance between the probes based on the amount of moisture present. Dunno what the accuracy of the reading will give you since it will only be the surface moisture present and how well the grain is packed in. A wood moisture meter will dig into the material itself and give a more sensible reading. Maybe a humidity meter would be better to check on the silo conditions?
I think the video was supposed to show that the manufacturer was responsibly disposing of cars that have undergone destructive safety testing and see to it that it never makes its way to the consumer. Although, they could use a few tips from NYers on how to strip a car more efficiently.
http://www.instructables.com/id/Star-Wars-Crossgua...Seems similar to light saber lights. You could also use the Adafruit ampli-tie sound reactive circuit to pulse to the beat of the music. Neopixel strips are available in 1 to 5 meter lengths and those clear - you can diffuse them - fluorescent light bulb protector tubes come in 4 to 8 foot lengths or source your own acrylic tubes. You might have to stick in an aluminum rod or rail to support the flex of a long length. Good luck.
