Introduction: Smart ID

About: 4D Makers is a group of curious engineers and enthusiasts who finds great satisfaction in creating and building anything from electronics.

This project is a base for the Smart ID project which will feature 4D Systems' 3.2" gen4-HMI display module. The Smart ID will have a slideshow which contains QR codes for the 4D Makers website, facebook page, twitter page and blog site

We used a website to generate the necessary QR codes used for the program.

Step 1: How It Works

Users can slide navigate to which QR code image they prefer to show on the ID.

Step 2: Build


  1. Gen4 uLCD-32DT
  2. FFC Cable
  3. Gen4-IB
  4. Battery
  5. Jumper Cables

Build the circuit as shown in the diagram.

Step 3: Program

  1. Download the project code here.
  2. Open the project using Workshop 4. This project uses the Visi Environment.
  3. You can modify the properties of each widget.
  4. Click on the “Compile” button.
  5. Connect the display to the PC using uUSB-PA5 and a mini USB cable. Make sure that you are connected to the right port. Red Button indicates that the device is not connected, Blue Button indicates that the device is connected to the right port.
  6. Now click on the “Comp n Load” button.
  7. Workshop 4 will prompt you to select a drive to copy the image files to a uSD Card. After selecting the correct drive, click OK.
