What are you trying to do with the PLC? Is it to just cycle through a set routine i.e. move a motor until a switch is triggered then do something else or are you using it to control the motors i.e. steppers...
Is this DSE or DSPCB? If DSPCB check out the published articles at https://designspark.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/201145765-DesignSpark-PCB
The first two here shows how to access the online...
Great write up, hopefully not long to wait for part 2
This is a great way to help the fight. I just need to put my 3D printer back together
@mariosimoni this code indicates a net without an associated net class. It can be corrected by assigning to a net on the nets tab under design technology.
RSDOC and STL files for the visor frames which you can 3D print and bolster the PPE supply to health workers at the front line.
Image processing is at the heart of many applications from simple embedded vision to
In today's industrial plants and facilities, many of the machines, tools, robotics and product handling all operate with compressed air, gas and vacuum systems, but detecting leaks (wasted energy) can be hard, especially in inaccessible locations.
Whether designing for harsh outdoor environments or the home , design engineers across industries need ways to insulate components against heat and electric current, provide strain relief for connectors and splices , and protect and seal .
In this webinar, we explore the new upgrade pathway from DesignSpark Electrical (DSE) into SOLIDWORKS Electrical products and a special offer for DSE users.
According to International Energy Agency’s latest report in 2017, motor systems consume 53% percent of global electricity. Find out how the MAX40056 can help you optimise your design.
Using a 3D printed valve, a snorkel mask can be converted to a ventilator mask. The Charlotte valve allows snorkel masks to be retro-fitted to hospital ventilators.

Why not use one of these ultra high power CoB LEDs for something different than just making light? This project is a perfect example of where you can get when starting to think laterally. Maybe nothing useful at first glance but astonishing cool!
Most modern peripheral device chips, such as sensors and motor drivers, communicate with a controller via a serial data bus. Microcontrollers usually support one or more of three basic types: UART, SPI and I2C. How do they work and which to choose?
