Visiting Makerspace at Guildford Library

The Makerspace has its own equipment (and a meetup page), which is installed in a multi-purpose room during the events. Library staff also do out-reach events (to schools for example) and in-house courses and workshops (Arduino for example), and the Makerspace has a loose alliance with the Surrey and Hampshire Makerspace, which also meets in Gulidford. Then the library has an alliance with the near-by Unive ...

PcbDraw – KiCAD board into a nice looking 2D drawing

This small Python script takes a KiCAD board (.kicad_pcb file) and produces a 2D nice looking drawing of the board as an SVG file. This allows you to quickly and automatically create awesome pinout diagrams for your project. These diagrams are much easier to read than a labeled photo of a physical board or an actual KiCAD design. You and your users will love them! Dependencies This script requires the pcbne ...

ESP8266: SSD1306 Oled Library Release

The “ESP8266 OLED SSD1306″ is an open source library which allows you to control those pretty OLED modules from our beloved ESP8266 module. Fabrice Weinberg cleaned up all the ugly pieces of code which I initially wrote caused by my near C/C++ illiteracy. He also added support for Pasko’s BRZO I2C library which is partially written in assembler and allows a much higher throughput over the I2C channel. Fabri ...
