  • as much as i’m glad spark fun is getting into CNC’s a belt driven CNC is not a good idea. it should be lead or ball screw. I was so excited to see it till I noticed the belts. but thanks for getting into the CNC market spark fun!

  • Awesome! If you guys need any help of advice let me know I used to design high end automation for homes, hotels, and commercial buildings. i.e.: custom lighting control (ac/dc, leading/trailing edge) multiroom audio, HVAC control and many others =) All fun stuff. Can’t wait to see your “apartment” evolve.

  • Link for “Phant” is down.

  • Glad to see a good old Friday new product post are back. I have to ask you have that TV screen in the corner always showing metered graphs. What do they represent and what do they measure?

  • Second that as well…

    While the AVR processor is nice it has become over priced and going out the door like the chips of yesterday. ARM’s are the way to go. I may pull an Arduino out once a month to prototype something and make a proof of concept out of it but in the end I use mostly ARM’s. The SAMD10 or SAMD11 is a perfect example of a great ARM chip to replace the UNO. in quantity it is under $1 per chip. It’s big brothers the SAMD20 and SAMD21 are around $2 bucks in quantity. With that said an arm SAMD20/21 can have almost the exact pin out of a MEGA and be 1/5 the cost.

    While this is sad it is time to spark a revolution in the Arduino world and Arduino needs to move to arm in the long run. Now is the time for Arduino to start up a whole new line of Arduino’s and bring the ARM’s into full light. I don’t believe that Arduino can survive as just an IDE. It needs both the hardware and software to stay strong for the future to come.

  • I was just thinking the same thing. I miss the old red box wall Friday new product posts. It was bring me to sparkfuns web page every Friday! Usually my wish lists would grow from them but ever since you switched to the new building I haven’t added anything to my cart on or wishlist on a Friday.

  • Personally I prefer STEP Or IGES to stl. I can do more with them in solidworks and inventor pro. But its awesome you guys are putting a 3d repository together!

  • I’ve been shopping with you guys since order 7600 some 8+ years ago and I’ll keep shopping with you for years to come!

  • Putting the blue smoke back inside the package.

  • Does the CC3000 support Class A subnets yet? Also does it support hidden SSID’S? I’ve never been able to get it to work on a Class A subnet. I’ve always had to set up a separate network and make it a class B or C subnet.
