Re: Raspberry Pi

I will soon be upgrading this first iteration with stepper motor driven gear boxes to provide better control and ability to adjust movement speeds. I would also like to be able to set a home position that the table will return to when one of the buttons on the SN is pressed. I have a lot of learning...

Re: Raspberry Pi

Thank you for the help. I've got it working now. It's a little tricky to control the table as it senses even the slightest pressure in any direction. Is there an easy way to make it less sensitive, almost like when being used with CAD where you can set it to only operate one axis at a time? I'm thi...

Re: Raspberry Pi

Thanks! The program now looks to run without errors. Is there a way that I can easily see whether the pi is reading the data packets sent by the SN? I don't get any readings from the GPIO pins when moving the SN around.

Re: Raspberry Pi

Thank you for the response. So I am trying to use code you wrote, SpaceNavigatorLEDs.py. When running I get the error "ImportError: No module named usb.core" What specific libraries do I need to link? Again, total noob here, so thanks for the help. I designed and produced the table, now just trying ...

Re: Raspberry Pi

Does the normal SN driver need to be installed on the Pi for this to work? If so which OS driver should be used?

Re: Raspberry Pi

Hello, total noob here. I am trying to use the SN to control a 6 axis surgical table. Doing this through a Pi3B. Do I need to have the normal driver for the SN installed? If so which OS driver should be installed on the Pi? So far I run into an error where it can't find "usb.core" Thanks for any help!
