  • Server Presets Described.

    To avoid accidents caused by misuse of Server Presets
    available via
    More from Server in presets list
    only 12 presets are available for now,

    ring-row;4_Shots_Around.mps
    ring-row;6_Shots_Around.mps
    row;8_Shots_Around.mps
    row;10_Shots_Around.mps
    row;12_Shots_Around.mps
    row;DAC_8_Shots_3_Rows_Z_N_Level.mps
    row;DAC_10_Shots_3_Rows_Z_N_Level.mps
    row;DAC_12_Shots_3_Rows_Z_N_Level.mps
    row;DAC_14-10-8-6_Shots_7_Rows_2N_2Z_Level.mps
    row;DAC_TEST_1312_Parked.mps
    row;DAC_TEST_1313_Level.mps
    row;DAC_TEST_1321_Raised.mps

    All the presets will be added back, one by one, with proper description and instructions,
    where to change something in each one.

    Also the above ones will be explained.

    The priority will be for the presets with less complexity or more wide use, however, if you miss one particular preset or you requested that preset and didn't downloaded or saved before of simply you want one preset which is not available now,
    please ask and that can be either elevate to higher priority or made available through PM

    Further more some changes will be made in UI to display that description of the preset after download and before use.
    1. Mecha it possible.
    2. Mecha it easy.
    3. Mecha team up.

    Before you running any presets,
    if you have E2 or P1 rotator
    please set in
    192.168.8.1/config
    of any MECHA you have

    Click image for larger version  Name:	e2_as_vertical.png Views:	0 Size:	27.0 KB ID:	32635
    then [Apply]
    this needs o be done once, and mostly is done at factory, but do no harm to check, at least.


    The conventions for starting and ending positions, if specified in the preset name, are:
    Click image for larger version  Name:	MECHA DAC poses_small.jpg Views:	0 Size:	33.5 KB ID:	32634
    With FW C1E_02097 or newer,
    you can turn from Level to Parked and back by pressing
    [>] then press quick [2]
    or
    [<] then press quick [2]
    of MECHA-V

    you can also use MECHA-H buttons as well for rotating by intervals,

    [>] [1] 45°
    [>] [2] 90°
    [>] [3] 180°
    the same intervals for [<] but in the opposite direction
    these intervals can be changed in /config if needed

    so on MECHA-V [>][3] or [<][3] can be used to rotate from Raised to Parked and back.


    row;DAC_TEST_1312_Parked.mps
    row;DAC_TEST_1313_Level.mps
    row;DAC_TEST_1321_Raised.mps

    these are the DAC tests
    also featured in this video
    1. Mecha it possible.
    2. Mecha it easy.
    3. Mecha team up.

        DAC_10_Shots_3_Rows_Z_N_Level.mps

        the description is close enough for
        DAC_8_Shots_3_Rows_Z_N_Level.mps
        DAC_12_Shots_3_Rows_Z_N_Level.mps
        as well

        Click image for larger version  Name:	DAC_10_shots_around_1.png Views:	0 Size:	51.2 KB ID:	32640

        Suitable for multi-row panorama, 10 around, for MECHA DAC,

        Used in A1-A3 mode
        In [A ] levels the presets needs to be selected then click on [Load] to be loaded, or it can be deleted if you want to,
        or other operations performed as well, still some are possible only after the preset is saved with [Save] after [Load]

        MECHA needs to be in Level starting position
        It will shoot three rows of 10 positions each
        one at 0 deg of tilt,
        one at 45 deg. of tilt
        one at -45 deg, of tilt
        one Zenith
        one Nadir

        to change it from 10 positions each to 12 position each is only need to change
        from [10 Shots] to [12 Shots]

        to change the degrees of tilt for row, say, from 45 deg. to 30 deg.is need to click on
        [P-45,45,1:90,-90,0°]

        Then click on [Dual]

        Click image for larger version  Name:	DAC_10_shots_around_2.png Views:	1 Size:	41.8 KB ID:	32642


        click [Ok] for letting the ip of 2nd MECHA unchanged,
        then edit the list of angles in


        Click image for larger version  Name:	DAC_10_shots_around_3.png Views:	0 Size:	53.7 KB ID:	32641


        P-30,30,1:90,-90,0
        then [Ok]
        ​​​​​
        ------8<-------------------

        This preset use the repeat feature offered by MECHA before the scripting features were added.
        the list of angles explained
        P is a convention in which tilting is like pitch in PTgui
        after first row of 10 or 12 is made just like for a single MECHA
        the repeat is called and the list says what changes are for each repeat
        for 1st repeat is -35 (2nd MECHA will tilt to -35 deg.)
        for 2nd repeat is is 35 (2nd MECHA will tilt to 35 deg.)
        then something different
        1:
        which says from now on is only one position per row,
        1:90, says 1 position at 90 tilt,
        -90, then at -90 tilt,
        then go back to 0 tilt

        ------8<-------------------


        then you can click on [Save 1] to save this preset to button 1 of MECHA-H-DAC
        then you can launch this preset by simply press [1] then [>] (for clockwise rotation)
        when MECHA is idle or press [1] then [<] (for counter-clockwise rotation)

        Also you can click on [Save] to save it on MECHA in the preset list with a desired name.

          DAC_14-10-8-6_Shots_7_Rows_2N_2Z_Level.mps

          This is a bit intimidating but it works very well, for a pre-scripting era,
          why not use it? even though it may look a bit UFO Science

          Click image for larger version  Name:	DAC_14_shots_around_1.png Views:	0 Size:	51.3 KB ID:	32644

          it is very similar with the previous one except it shoots a different number of positions per each row,

          it shoots 14 positions on 1st row,
          then 10 position at -12 tilt,
          then 8 positions at - 45 tilt
          then 6 position at -60 tilt
          then 10 position at 12 tilt,
          then 8 positions at 45 tilt
          then 6 position at 60 tilt
          then 2 Zeniths each at 90 deg apart
          then 2 Nadirs each at 90 deg apart

          Here is the science
          P10:-12,8:-45,6:-60,10:12,8:45,6:60,2^90:90,2^90:-90,0

          after first row of 14 is made just like for a single MECHA
          the repeat is called and the list says what changes are for each repeat
          10:-12, for 1st repeat says is 10 positions from now on (2nd MECHA will tilt to -12 deg.)
          8:-45, for 2nd repeat says is 8 positions from now on (2nd MECHA will tilt to -45 deg.)
          6:-60, for 3rd repeat says is 6 positions from now on (2nd MECHA will tilt to -60 deg.)
          10:12, then is 10 positions from now on (2nd MECHA will tilt to 12 deg.)
          8:45, then is 8 positions from now on (2nd MECHA will tilt to 45 deg.)
          6:60, then is 6 positions from now on (2nd MECHA will tilt to 60 deg.)
          now something different,
          instead of telling
          2:90,
          which will say two positions at 90 tilt (which will turn to be at 180° apart which could be good as well)
          we say
          2^90:90,
          which will say two positions at 90° apart for the 90° tilt for i.e. two Nadirs at 90 apart
          then the same for two Zeniths.
          2^90:-90,
          then go back to 0 tilt

          Changes can be made to this presets as well,

          if you want more rows you need to change the numbers of repeats as well by click on Repeat and
          enter, at custom, 10*1 instead of 8*1 if two more rows are added, say we want another two rows
          at -70 made of 4 positions each

          P10:-12,8:-45,6:-60,4:-70,10:12,8:45,6:60,4:70,2^90:90,2^90:-90,0
          If we want the order of rows to be changed their position in the list of angles can be adjusted,
          e.g. with positive the tilts first
          P10:12,8:45,6:60,4:70,10:-12,8:-45,6:-60,4:-70,2^90:-90,2^90:90,0
          again, the repeat must be set at [Repeat 10*1 sec]
          if for some reasons want more seconds between rows it can be sat at [Repeat 10*5], say for 5 seconds.

          also the number of positions can be changed as well, say
          P12:12,10:45,8:60,6:70,12:-12,10:-45,8:-60,6:-70,2^90:-90,2^90:90,0



          then you can click on [Save 1] to save this preset to button 1 of MECHA-H-DAC
          then you can launch this preset by simply press [1] then [>] (for clockwise rotation)
          when MECHA is idle or press [1] then [<] (for counter-clockwise rotation)

          Also you can click on [Save] to save it on MECHA in the preset list with a desired name.
          1. Mecha it possible.
          2. Mecha it easy.
          3. Mecha team up.
