Sync with remote as you code
If your like me, sometimes you can not test the code your writing on your workstation and the code need to be 'installed' or 'deployed' to a remote server in order to test it because of hardware constrain or physical environment (IO, network,...). The follo...

Anyone has recommendation ho how to make a print (PLA or ABS) waterproof ?
Waterproof meaning that if the 3D object is a box the content of the box won't get wet if the box is submersed in water...

Hi all,

First congrats on FastLED, was able to switch to it from NeoPixels without much effort. In face I can switch between the 2 libraries using a pre-compiler directive.

However I do have a problem. I am using FastLED with the SdFat, UTFT and URTouch libraries. When the touch screen is touched (from a menu presented on the LCD), a LED sequence starts and when the sequence is completed it should return to menu and wait for commands.

However it does not return to the menu. I traced the calls and the code does go through the part where it's supposed to write to the screen, but it does not change.

If I switch back to NeoPixel library, the code behaves like it should and after the LED sequence it returns to the menu and LCD access works.

Any clue ?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm currently using NeoPixel library to adress WS2811 RGB LEDS. One problem with the library is that it turns off the interrupt somewhere which throws off the timing I need to so in my main loop (using millis).

Before I switch to FastLED I would like to know if the FastLED library does something similar.

Using an Arduino Mega 2560 if it matters.

Thanks.
