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!
