Welcome to XOD forum!

Hello there!

Thank you for trying XOD and visiting the forum.

Let us make friends? Write few lines about yourself. Where are you from? What’s your job and hobby? What DIY projects have you done or working on?

Aloha kiddies!
I’m a welder/apprentice electrician up in Canada currently working on a multistage reverse geocache style puzzle box. I’m just calling it Wanderbot for now and as my first Arduino/robotics project it is definitely a bit ambitious but so far the internet has been kind to me and I’m pretty lucky with the questions I ask the search engines.

Continuing the discussion from Welcome to XOD forum!:

I am from Ballarat in Australia. I am an electrical engineer (power) and my hobby is photography. I want to build a camera controller for water drop collision photos. Specifically I want be able to make nodes from C++. e.g. 4 x 4 membrane keypad without a C++ library.

does the xod ide works on “arduino due” which is based on arm mcu ?
I think it will not differs because all arduino have one ide isnt it?

you know what I meant , I’m telling there is not about muc’s are supported by xod in documentation

can you tell me more ?

My name is Tom
I’m a retired electrician and my hobby is Model Railways. I can see where the Arduino could be useful for doing some projects. I got a Arduino and some bits and pieces including a ULN2003 to use with a stepper motor to start me off. i couldn’t come to grips with the programming end but I was delighted to come across XOD graphics programming tool. I think i will be able to get a handle on this, however, my first obstacle was finding a node for the ULN2003. I would appreciate any help with this
Thanking you, tom

Hello Xoder’s,
my name is Chris, I come from Germany.
I trained as an electronics technician for automation technology and work as a trade fair model builder.
My hobbies are filming, photography, traveling and making electronics.
Completed projects with XOD:
Nixie tube display for temp, humidity, pressure, altitude

Works in progress:
mqtt plant sensor in combination with VVVV
for childs a colorfull Cloudlamp with sound and mqtt service
Pan/Tilt Head plus Slider for my Timelapse sessions in combination with VVVV

Thanks to XOD Team
for this great program

Liebe Grüße

Rourkev8, There are several stepper libraries. One of them might work for you. https://xod.io/libs/?q=stepper (probably not the h-bridge version)

elo my name is shaun - brisbane australia
24 year electrician - currently working as electrical draftsmen/project manager
most of my experience is FMCG fully automated heavy industrial
interests are , automation especially sequencing
thanx to Xod they make it possible for the every day guy like my self to take on more complex project
with out the help of seimens ,allenbradly ,danfos for them its all about how big ur wallet is
current xod projects-

  1. auto change over controller - with gen run on time and brown out protection
  2. motor protection relay / controller
  3. top secret

Hi, I am a former electrical / electronic maintainer, I live in Naples Italy, currently retired, I have always had the hobby of electronics started in the 1970s, and I continue to update myself with new devices on the market, currently I use Arduino boards with various devices programmed with with its IDE, but then I discovered XOD.IO and I’m fascinated by it. I was able to program only relay buttons and LEDs with XOD, but I find it difficult to insert the PCF8574 I / O expansion module into the programming.
I ask you if you can give me some help maybe with some sample sketches.
Thank you.

If you search for pcf8574 on the libraries page (Libraries — XOD), there is at least one library that might help. (There are many hits for matching comments, but it looks like developer may have not have updated comments on other libraries he submitted.)

XOD is really easy to code using existing modules. Unfortunately, if you have to create your own modules, that part is likely to be harder than using Arduino IDE with libraries available for it. If you don’t want to have to write your own modules and none are available for the hardware you have, it might be easier to try using hardware that does have existing XOD nodes (either built-in or in available libraries).

In case you don’t know, to use the libraries that you find on the above page, you go into XOD and select File > Add Library…, then type/paste in the library you want (or a partial string to search for, like “PCF8574”) and select the appropriate match.

hello! I am a hobbyist, I work as a flight simulator technician and I done simple Arduino projects that other people coded, but I have so many of my own ideas but I can’t code. I hope XOD is what I need to get started.

I am Imtiaz Ahamed from Sri Lanka & working in Saudi Arabia as an engineer in Securitas Saudi Arabia as a System integrator for access control & intrusion system.
My recent research is to build a security door interlock system with the help of XOD nodes, In this system, it has two LCD displays on each door entrance to monitor the door status & this system will integrate with the door access control system to control the interlock of the door. It’s almost in the finishing stage. Once again thanks to the XOD founders & the forum team members to carry forward this block (Visual) programming system in success.
