    Badass! Glad it’s working well for you. As mentioned in another thread, we got the 6-button device today. It works fantastic and so easy to program! Quite powerful as well. We’re gonna think about other ways to make a good use of it.

    so to accomplish this we made two scripts (possibly a much simpler way to do this, but this is what got the job done for us)

    first

    make a script in your /Shaders file; for lava save cp SurfaceAddWaterColor-Lava.fs SurfaceAddWaterColor.fs as switch-to-lava.sh

    then make a second script in your home directory named lava-switch.sh

    cd ~/src/SARndbox-1.5-001/share/SARndbox-1.5/Shaders
    ./switch-to-lava.sh

    then point your shortcut to the script in your home directory, the command would simply be ./lava-switch.sh For some reason we had trouble getting the shortcut to run directly from the /Shaders directory.

    P.S. be sure to rename these directories if you update to 1.6!!!

    if you take apart a keyboard and use the little electronic board to wire the switch, you can connect this button to it to represent a key.
    they are dirt cheap. You get 5 of them for the price!

    We did try the keyboard route (taking it apart) but ended up going with something a little more permanent. (The kids are rough on things.) The 6-button controller is working wonderfully, and we got it for $13. Actually got two, and I’m glad we did because one was ripped off during “community free day.” (O_O)

    Here’s some more recent pictures (after the weekly maintenance we’ve discovered is needed: cleaning the covers over the projector and Kinekt, adding sand and recalibrating.)

    Is there any way to assign these to keyboard keys?

    Yes! I think we have that in another post somewhere with the scripts. If you look at the pictures in this post, you can see a 6-button controller hanging from it on the left. 1 is water, 2 is lava, 3 is snow, 4 is ice/tropical, 5 is green (toxic waste) and 6 is fill. Works perfectly – we have them mapped to F1, F2, F3, F4, F5 and #9 I believe. I know we posted the code somewhere about mapping. I’ll see if Jensen (user here, the main tech on this project) can add a bit more to it or find the link.

    That would be awesome! Thank you for the reply, as well.

    You also mentioned the use of the xdotool, but I have no idea how to use it (let alone install it). Is there a step-by-step method anywhere that I can use? I have the shaders installed in the files that you provided, but I’m stuck at the button-assigning process.

    Hello there INTPTT, would you be willing to share with the group a copy of the scripts/adjusted files you are using to make all the colour changes and button features?

    Or maybe you can email me at mkaszuba@pvnccdsb.on.ca if there is no way to post attachments.

    Thanks.

    Would you be willing to share your shaders and cfg files that you have created to make your project complete?

    Hi all. Craig Beals (https://www.bealsscience.com/single-post/2017/06/07/Augmented-Reality-Sandbox-will-Blow-Your-Mind) has a great video about his build. I have taken taken his build and created Sketchup files, and an stl file to see it in 3d.

    BealsScience files

    PLease note: I added a computer shelf to his original build.
