Bare Conductive’s Touch Board, Electric paint and printed sensors are ideal for prototyping. Electric Paint allows you to quickly make circuits and interfaces on all kinds of surfaces so it’s suited for anything from wearables to posters, enabling you to iterate rapidly and test your ideas along the way.
Here you’ll find a few pointers that will help you along the way.
To get the desired behaviour out of your sensors, calibration might be necessary, especially if you’re using long cable runs and large sensors.
You can use the companion Grapher application to see how your sensors are behaving. Here you’ll find all the necessary information to start using Grapher with your Touch Board.
Sensors created with Electric Paint can have a variety of shapes and sizes. These factors will affect their behaviour and efficiency so it’s always best to test your ideas before committing. Here are a few pointers to make the job easier.
If your project requires neat, sharp edges there are a few methods at your disposal.
For more involved shapes you can create stencils out of a variety of materials, from acetate to thin card. You can also use commercially available stencils and templates for lettering, circles, ellipses…
The trace is the connection from the Touch Board to your sensor.
It’s easy to forget, so we’ll repeat: Reset!
Every time anything changes regarding the configuration of your sensors, cabling and contacts, the sensors need to recalibrate to work correctly. The most common cause of things suddenly not working will be this, so remember to reset.
