Install NXT & dIMU Inertial Motion Sensor [SOLVED}


#1

Hello!

I bought dIMU Inertial Motion Sensor and can’t download for it NXT-G block, the links for download don’t work

Please, help me

Sorry about that. I tried to update the links in the manual.

We’ve got them up on github now here: https://github.com/DexterInd/DI_LEGO_NXT

There are a lot of files of different formats, but lego mindstorms nxt software can’t identify them and install as sensor. May be need another format of the files?


#4

This is the specific directory, the one named after the sensor you’re working with: https://github.com/DexterInd/DI_LEGO_NXT/tree/master/dIMU/NXT

Here’s a video on how to install blocks with NXT-G: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWewZSn2MIk

yes, I do everything according to instructions, but lego software does not detect the matched files in the folder


#6

What step number on the video do you have problems with?


#7

when i select the folder on step 5, in the step 6 after scan the block list remains empty

Ok, trying it myself. It worked just fine.

Downlaod the entire repository. Change directories to DI_LEGO_NXT/dIMU/NXT/

Select one of the directories under that: Accel, AccelCal, FastGyro, Gyro.

When I do that, I see the name of the directory pup up in the Block Import and Export Wizard, and version 4.0 is showing.

Here’s a screenshot. Pay close attention to which directory I chose.

I don’t understand why, but it worked. Thank you!
