Hey there

Here is the start of the mockup build.

20201126_221713.jpg


Going to build it fully, and wire/ solder the screens and footswitches while attached to this board. The polyglass will be used to make the final enclosure (wood finish). The screens will be protected bij this polyglass, so i hope to make the PCB beer proof ;)

Question for you. Does your programme have a button "HOLD" function as in a long press?

Cheers
 
Cool, good idea to go with the polyglass. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like when complete.

I have programmed long press button handling, I just haven't done the work to allow you to define what to do in that situation for each button. What would you like to trigger? Would you want a completely different function to the short press and what would the screens do to show short vs long press options?
 
This is a good idea regarding easy preset selection. And the number positions would be predictable rather than numbers shifting around.

I like the idea of being able to see preset names once you've drilled down a bit though so might need a completely different idea as well to get the best experience.

Next step:. Drilled the holes and made M3 treadholes for the screens. Guess im stupid, because the holes on the lcd screens are 2mm lol... and i didnt had any beers yet when i thought of this idea.

Tried to drill 3mm holes in the screen, that worked, but this will take some time because i need to be drilling very carefully. That s****cks!

The mockup result so far:. It will look much clearer when the protection foil is removed ;)

Hey there @prongs_386

This is an amazing project, things are starting to build up. For those who follow this thread, here is a progress picture of the mockup (using @Piing V7 software and @tysonlt AxeControl libriary as base) Still working on the arduino code to match my configuration.
