So, a lot of you asked me either “What if I’ve never programmed before?” or “I have no idea where to start. It’s ok! We’ll get you started off on the right foot. Our first BUILD series of this year is going to be a crash course in to microcontrollers and embedded programming, we’re calling it “Blinkies, Buzzers, and Buttons” because it sounds a lot more cute and not nearly as intimidating as “Embedded Programming and Microcontrollers”.
The cost of the BUILD Series is going to be $70, which is a fantastic deal, and you can use your Arduino Mega Clone for your 3D printer. It’s really like a down payment and at the end of this series you’ll be much better prepared to transition into building your own 3D printer and any other project you want to take on.
So, here’s what you get; if you do the BUILD series you will receive:
- 1x breadboard (830 tie)
- 8x tactile switch (through hole 2-leg)
- 8x 10k resistors + small assortment for adjustments
- 1x mini hobby speaker (2 inch)
- 1x 3mm red LED
- 8x 3mm green LED
- 1x assortment of jumper wires
- 1x 10k potentiometer
- 1x Arduino Mega 2560 Clone
- 1x 9V battery enclosure with male adapter for Arduino
So, we need to know as soon as possible that want to do this BUILD Series so that we can get the kits in. Sign up, deadline is Thursday September 27 and the last day for payment is the following Thursday October 4th. You can sign up online for the seriesHERE.
Also, if you haven’t signed up for the RepRap series please do so NOW! We need to know the number of people who are participating so we can get the best deal possible. Sign up are HERE.
Feel free to contact us if you guys have any questions.
