As for the schematic and the printed circuit board, the project is created in the "Protel" program and only with a protel you can open these files. If you do not have a protela you can order a free 30-day version of the protela from the distributor of this program. here is the link:
if someone with a protel could open the diagram and click on the screenshot and then save and from the clipboard in the jpg file ?? it will make life easier for people who do not have contact with the protel thanks
And I have another question for the author How do you cut plexiglass? The rails are sharp and not dull. As far as I know how to make them not matt, I do not know how you did it, that they are perfectly straight and with a sharp edge.
It was cut with a circular saw with a saw blade. This saw cuts the plexiglass very evenly, does not tear the edge. However, what you see in the film is the result of an additional several hours of processing. I cleaned the edges of cut-to-size pieces with an oscillating grinder and water papers in succession 300, 600, 800, 1200, and finally with a felt also attached to this grinder and (not a joke) toothpaste. It's good to grind a few pieces at a time, because then we do not round the edges. As a result, we get perfectly polished and sharp edges.
MBI are Macroblock systems. These are basically serial registers with parallel outputs. They are power outputs, that means they can directly control eg LED diodes. The current flowing into the tip of row 20 to even in some 90-100mA systems. Very simple so in the control and relatively cheap. For me in the company we use the same with 16-bit as diode drivers for light boards.
You can buy 16-bit MBI systems, for example, in the MARITEX warehouse. but instead of Macroblock systems you can use other manufacturers, for example, the ST company also produces such or Toshiba. ST even sends free samples
I confirm that in the project you can use 16-bit systems, they were also in the first version, but later I changed to 8-bit for purely technical reasons - I just could not fit on the tile. I also agree on the simplicity of control - the first driver responsible for data transfer to the systems was made about 10 minutes after opening the datasheet.
such a thing can be easily balanced but you need to have a hole drilled centrally. So if we have a hole, we put a screwdriver in it and look in which direction we twist and add or subtract the weight on the ends depending on the possibilities.
I have a question, is there any store where I can order all the elements at the same time? Because when I was looking for it after each scalaku in a separate store I would have to order, and this unfortunately falls off because the shipment would not be badly paid; /; /

Oh, I'm afraid you will not find all the elements there. But if you find something somewhere, give me the link to pw.
