How do you actually control NEOPixels?



  • M150 B155 P128 S10 F0 X1 lights them all up

    M150 U155 P128 S1 F0 does set first one green on intial startup, then
    M150 R155 P128 S3 F1 -- don't work after the first, but if i change F1 to F0, three light up red.

    But it stops changing with F1 after the first time.
    I want to have 4 each show red when the bed and hotend are ho.

    How do you access the heater temps?
    heat.heaters.0.current isn't valid.

    Object module doesn't show how to use it.

    With NeoPixels it's necessary to program the entire strip in one go. So when you use F1, RRF buffers the data until you send a command witn F0.

    heat.heaters[0].current



  • @dc42 I knew it would be something simple. 🤔
