konokaiden How would I get the default_biped_configuration working without having it on my actual body or without calibrating it all first?
You can just lay them all on a table, connect them together with the Hub and raspberry and run the
notochord with the
I've seen many users having problems at this step: perhaps connectivity issues, soldering problems, software misconfiguration, etc.
If you spot these problems at this step they are easier to solve, and saves you the frustration of doing a lot of work to find out that a tiny detail forces you to undo some of it.*
Once you have it working you can also go ahead and send the data to blender. You will get a mess of entangled bones, probably slowly drifting because of the lack of calibration, but you should be able to see a particular bone moving if you move one of the physical sensors. If I were you I would check each sensor is responding using that method at this stage.
At this point you will be pretty certain that the core of your system is indeed working, and it would be a good time to wrap up the details like fixings or so..
This is a general rule I (and many others) apply to complex developments, it's know as the "Fail fast rule": It's better to identify all the possible errors of your system at the beginning, before start doing the finishes
PS: If you do the table test, please post some photos or videos of it, we can use them to explain the process to others easily 😉
