    I am thinking about using this to make a like seven or 14 segment display underneath thermochromic fabric. I tested it with the whole pad, and it works very responsively and well. But for money and size reasons, i want to chop apart one of these heating pads into about 7 pieces about 1 cm wide.

    I’ll then just solder new leads on the ends of the nichrome on each piece (isn’t there something tricky about soldering to that though?) Then the resistence of each piece will be about 1/7th of the overall thing right? So then I would need to drop my (currently 12 v i am feeding it) to 12/7 V? Or else it will just get super hot /and or suck down too much juice? Finally I will try to seal up the edges of the plastic with some tape or something?

    Let me know the holes in my logic please!

    Can you please share a code snippet of how you guys positioned the knobs? PID? direct?

    Yes this would be the best, I am trying to make an XY plotter, which would be a lot like what you have, but using a PID controller, and things are weird. Not as nice and smooth as you have.

No public wish lists :(
