PCB & Enclosure Design Files and Expanded Connectivity Options

by Akshar Vastarpara

First of all, we want to thank everyone who has supported the Maypole project over the past week! Our campaign has only been live for seven days, and we’ve already hit our funding goal. You all are the best!

This update includes links to design files and a brief description of a key firmware feature that we’re currently implementing.

Design Files

We’ve added the PCB design files for Maypole to our GitHub repository. We’ve also added STEP files for a simple, 3D-printable enclosure that you can use to print your own case for the version of Maypole without a battery.

Software

We’ve been hard at work, lately, adding functionality to the Maypole firmware. More specifically, we’re writing the code that will allow Maypole to connect to existing Wi-Fi networks as a client. If configured to do so, it will then launch a web server so that other local clients—like laptops and mobile phones—can browse to it. (Maypole also supports a "standalone router" mode where the device itself acts as a Wi-Fi access point.)
