DAVEGA X Updates

Have you looked into a fiber laser machine ? They can be had for little money directly from China.

Bigger screen! Yeeeeees! Or smaller davega? Would it be possible to make the aluminum housing measure the same on all sides? This way in landscape it wouldn’t look like it prolly belongs in vertical orientation

That’s certainly unexpected. Did you enable bluetooth? That would more likely be a reason for the restarts than the newest firmware.

Yes, as I said, though – while affordable, these machines are usually bulky since they require cooling and exhaust system. I don’t really have space for that. I would prefer a small diode laser if I can find one that manages to etch aluminum reliably and at a decent speed (doesn’t need to be super fast but I can’t wait an hour for a one small logo either).

For the most part, the housing shape is driven by the display PCB and I’m not in control of that one.

With the current display the symmetry could only be achieved by making the top part wider. I don’t think people would appreciate bulkier design though.

I improved the support for LLT Power Smart BMS in FW v5.02 (not to be confused with VESC FW v5.02). Here’s a quick demo:

Quick question, is there any way to select which MAC address the davega pairs too? At any given moment I have 4-8 batteries in my home with LLT bms in them :sob:

Not at the moment. However, if you temporarily move all the unwanted BMSes outside of the bluetooth range so that there’s only one that the DAVEGA can connect to, once it connects it will remember the MAC address and will go straight to it on the next boot up. (With the latest FW that is.)

I spent some time on the https://davega.eu/ website today, bringing things up to date. I also did a little bit of polishing on the front page. There’s now a full-width carousel at the top showcasing some of the awesome builds (I had to cherry pick ones where I had a picture with a suitable format). I’m happy with how it came out.

I realised I don’t have much content for the gallery of close-ups. If anyone has a nice picture they would like to share that would be much appreciated. Cheers.

I can give you some closeups I’ll send you an email, what email address should I use?

The success of this product can almost entirely be attributed to it’s name. Your efforts are noted though Jan.

Hm, success… Do you mean the fact I have managed to camouflage unlimited hobby time as a profitable business for more than 16 months? :thinking:

May I suggest you move the Purchase button to the very left? I think that’s what people are most used to + interested in finding first :slight_smile:

It has always bugged me that it is so “difficult” to find a way to purchase it.

Purchase button at the very bottom of the page and the bottom of the dropdown menu.

Most put the the top or very near ^^

Yeah, an additional button in the middle or bottom too!

But then people would just buy without reading and appreciating all the interesting content up to the very end of the page. :hushed:

Don’t care, give me a davega, no baseplate included :laughing:
Reading is for nerds

Okay, I added the purchase button but… next time somebody asks me what those numbers in the green rectangle at the top of the screen mean… when normally, in a desperate search for the purchase button, they would scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and watch the short 15 minutes demo video that explains it… I’ll know who to blame!

oh no that naming is gonna be a headache :sweat_smile: Maybe version V.II? But then it becomes vV.II and starts to look like a bad emoji or something

I just need to outpace the VESC development real quick. :slight_smile:
