  • Not able to uppdate FW - not able to use dual axis

    To be honest - i have read all the information and it feels like I need a
    degree in computer network setup or similar .
    What a mess ..... Unfortunately I'm a photographer and not computer scientist .

    After HOURs of trials I have 2 mechas ( H+ V ) it looks like i have FW 1485

    I have failed to get dual axis functionality

    I'm not able to get FW 2XXXX

    I can use both H and V MEcha separately .
    but not together .


    I'm connecting via Iphone 11
    ( WIFI SSID is MECHA )


    first then i click on button connect to Wifi
    and put my normally used internet connection WIFI namen and password.
    Then I go to IP/ new and click update -
    After like 60 s there is several beeps and nothing happens .
    No uppdate. no dialog no exclamation mark nothing . After plenty of beeeps
    nothing happens.




    I have Imac / with both Eternet connection by cable ) , Iphone , and I even have Android phone,
    There must be a better step by step description how to update ,

      please try the follow.
      1) Power ON only H MECHA and press [1] for 3 seconds at -=-=-=-=-= (until you heard multiple beeps)
      2) Power ON V MECHA and press [2] for 3 seconds at -=-=-=-=-= (until you heard multiple beeps)
      MECHAs will shows the LEDs as paired - and =
      3) please test one code from here
      https://forum.nodalninja.com/forum/p...1589#post31589
      say 1313> using H MECHA buttons

      if the code works OK then the pairing is OK even without using UI,

      4) try to connect to MECHA-H-DAC SSID using 12345678 password and test the presets for DAC.

      you can change the SSID password and other settings later by accessing 192.168.9.1/config (admin/Mecha)
      1. Mecha it possible.
      2. Mecha it easy.
      3. Mecha team up.

        I have tried- pushing buttons on mechas method and now both are just blinking seince 10 minutes,
        Weal point of the button method is that i was not 100 % Sure if the sequence was pressed correctly .
        Iäm not sure if I can try to swith off during that blinking - looks different on H and V..

          You can switch OFF
          then please follow the above step by step
          first with H MECHA only (button [1])
          then with V MECHA button [2], letting the H MECHA running.

          You need to press and hold 3 seconds the button (until you hear multiple beeps) when you see the LEDs blinking like this

            OK - one green stripes on H and Two On v - They dont go off.
            So pushing test sequence now - or restart ?

              OK - 1313 > sequence worked .
              Thank YOu

              I have a bit of doubt about how it is going to work with my 1,2 kg setup as the camera goes down on vertical arm...

                That the normal sign they are successfully paired, the LEDs will show that - and = in idle time for you to know that they are paired.
                the LEDs will go OFF then do their job otherwise, only on idle will show - and =.

                You can start test sequence and use MECHA DAC as regular.

                1. Mecha it possible.
                2. Mecha it easy.

                  When V MECHA is powered, the motor should hold the camera.

                        OK . still no idea how to get usable sequence of 8 around with 3 different V angles .
                        ( in the web page )

                        But it feels better now... Thanks

                          Select
                          [Scripted]

                          then enter in the text area under
                          e.g.

                          SP,Z,N,0x10,45x10,-45x10

                          it will start parked (SP) and will shoot the zenith due to good position for that (parked)
                          then move and shoot Nadir
                          then first row at 0 made of 10 positions (0x10)
                          then the second row at 45 made of 10 positions (45x10)
                          then the third row at -45 made of 10 positions (-45x10)

                          If you want pause before first shoot on 1st row, just add P before 1st row
                          SP,Z,N,P0x10,45x10,-45x10

                          or before each row, add P before each row
                          SP,Z,N,P0x10,P45x10,P-45x10

                          When MECHA is paused, two LEDs blinks and you can continue with [PAUSE] in UI or with [>] button of H MECHA

                          Click image for larger version  Name:	scripted.png Views:	0 Size:	56.7 KB ID:	32324

                          Or you can ask for a particular shooting sequence you want to use, as a starting point, then you can edit as you want.

                          C1E_02090..91
                          Added a simple form of scripting to specify a spherical panorama.
                          e.g. for 50mm on FF a panorama can be covered by
                          1 row at 75 deg, made of 5 shots
                          1 row at 50 deg, made of 11 shots
                          1 row at 25 deg, made of 16 shots
                          1 row at 0 deg, made of 17 shots
                          1 row at -25 deg, made of 16 shots
                          1 row at -50 deg, made of 11 shots
                          1 row at -75 deg, made of 5 shots
                          this can be now scripted as
                          SL,75x5,50x11,25x16,0x17,-25x16,-50x11,-75x5
                          SL stands for Start (and end) in Level position
                          SP, or SR can be used instead for Parked or Raised positions.
                          If is need for Zenith or Nadir shot, they need to be added after SL,
                          e.g. SL,Z,N, or SL,ZZ,NN, for one or two photos at 90 deg apart.
                          e.g. SL,N,Z,75x5,50x11,25x16,0x17,-25x16,-50x11,-75x5
