Installing knobby

Many of you will be receiving Knobby in the mail soon.

Installing it is easy.  Just follow these steps:

  1. Connect knobby to a USB port
  2. Open the Device Manager and check which COM port # knobby was assigned to (it is the one displaying an Arduino Due board).
  3. Open Matlab, edit scanbox_config.m and set the tri_knob variable to the corresponding COM port.  Save.
  4. Start Scanbox.

As Scanbox starts up you will see a welcome message on the screen and Knobby will be initialized.  Test that all axes work properly. Finally, uninstall the 3Dconnexion software and reboot your machine.  You are done!

Let me know if you have questions…
