  • Wiring Diagram Program (Wireboy)

    Does your team need a wiring diagram? They can be tedious to remake every time a new motor or servo is plugged in.

    FIX IT 3491 has created a program called Wireboy to solve this problem. This software used your config file to generate a wiring diagram such as the one in the picture below. We hope this software will be useful to teams as they go about making changes to their robot and adding new mechanisms.

    The Wireboy program is available on Github for teams to use. Wireboy

    This is the first version of our program and does not include support for the Legacy module at this time. Here is a sample wiring diagram from Wireboy.

            Nice app, could you add the module name as well as the serial number for modules?

            Also we have two dims, seems to miss 7th analogue port devices on both(doesn't show on list).

              I added the module names to a new release. https://github.com/a-krawciw/WireBoy...ses/tag/V1.5.2

              Were you using V1.5? The port 7 bug should have been fixed in V1.5. (I just tried your setup and it worked for me)

                Being that your file has a .jar extension I am guessing that we need to be using android studio?
                Did I miss how the program is supposed to work?

                  You don't need Android Studio, but you do need to download and run the JDK (or at least the JRE). Download the WireBoy.jar file, then open a command prompt and run:

                  Code:
                   java -jar WireBoy.jar
                  and it should be self-explanatory from there.
