Review example protocols and tutorials that are in use at the Center for Modular Manufacturing of Structural Tissues:

Version: December 31, 2018.
Requirements: Compatible actuator and controller (please contact us to discuss your needs). PC running Windows and available USB port. Tested with Windows 7 and above.
Instructions: Download and copy the exe file into any desired location of your hard drive. Run the exe file. You will need to override all the warnings Windows issues to run the application. First, choose the COM port to which the USB adapter is connected from the list of com ports identified by the software. Next, choose the various actuation parameters. There are a total of four parameters. They are self explanatory.
