In a nutshell:

This is the most-easy-to-copy-yet version, it's even almost kid & pet save Wink

What you will need:

1 Teensy board, $19 (PJRC)
1 PBC15F, $8 (Winford)
1 Breadboard, $8.99 (RadioShack)
1 Wire Kit, $6.19 (RadioShack)
2 1kOhm resistors, $1.19 (5) (RadioShack)
2 .001uF capacitors, $1.89 (RadioShack)

The program image and the Teensy loader.

Use the following picture as a guide to build that thing, note the wires in the upper left corner (circled in the pic). Make sure it looks the same to prevent the pins from the PBC15F adapter digging into the wires. Also note the corner of the PBC15F adapter close to the Teensy board, I ground it down a bit using some sandpaper.



Once you built the 3DP-Vert, connect it to your PC with an USB A-miniB cable, push the button on the board and use the Teensy loader to program the 3DPro.hex image. That's it. Smile

PSA -- new Firmware Release for Teensy based 3DP-Vert Smile

Since I'm working with the code in a different project I migrated some of the changes back into the 3DP-Vert software. This is a maintenance release, the main changes are:

- increased joystick data read out rate from 222Hz to 333Hz
- increased USB polling rate from 200Hz to 500Hz
- added USB suspend code (LED will blink once every 3s when suspended)
- hardened joystick read code
- major cleanup of the USB descriptor section
- other minor cleanups/bug fixes

The first two changes are the main reasons for updating (reduced input latency.)

To update your Teensy based 3DP-Vert, go here and follow the instructions for your operating system, replace any "blink_fast.hex" reference with the appropriate HEX file for your Teensy:

Code:

Teensy 2.0   -- 3DPro32u4-9.hex
Teensy++ 2.0 -- 3DPro1286-9.hex
Teensy       -- 3DPro162-9.hex
Teensy++     -- 3DPro646-9.hex


If you have any problem w/ the code, let me know.

Something to take note of in regards to google code....

Google Code Timeline for Closure.
