Preview: LEDgoes Font Maker

Posted by Stephen and Stacy Wylie (Devino) (Creator)

Yet another feature that sets LEDgoes apart from most other LED matrix solutions is the ability to quickly & easily create fonts using a software font editor.  Simply indicate which LEDs are to be illuminated for each character by drawing on the grid as if you're using paint software at a high zoom.  The exact user interface for programming the font is still in development, but in the attached video, it's copied straight into the program code that drives the matrix.

This tool is how the "double-stack" fonts were designed and implemented right away.  Trying to calculate what bits to flip by hand would have been a nightmare!  This protects you from all that technical nonsense.

You could also use this tool to come up with symbols to show instead of letters, such as music notes, hearts, bugs, or any other fun shapes.  Watch the video for details!
