Today I started organizing the shop a bit more. Still not done, lots of work. The products have options to choose from now. Would like too add photo switching also but that would be a little bit more work.
The New Nanogris version is also added to the shop. I’m out of Quantizers but no worries these are ordered and underway.
Today I finished building the new boards and testing the results. The new boards function as they should. What has changed since the last versions.
0.03 Was the first version that was released to the public. Since then a few things have changed.

The new boards arrived today. Therefor all NanoGris boards and panels are for sale. These boards all function but have been updated for minor issues like footprint errors. Hopefully testing the new boards won’t introduce any errors and be in the shop this week or so.
there are times you do things with the best intentions and still make a mistake. The NanoGrids module is originally by Mutable Instruments. The schematics are released under cc-by-sa-3.0 license on github. This makes these files open to the public to use.
Mutable Instruments is very kind to do so and ask for little in return. Naming your clone module is one of those little things.
from GitHub: We do not recommend you to keep the original name of the Mutable Instruments module for your derivative works.
I did not honor that request fully. I did not read it when building NanoGrids. It’s based of there Grids module. So I hope to make my mistake right again. I renamed the module to NanoGris
I did some minor updates on the Nanogrids PCB’s. As more and more people are building NanoGrids more wishes and suggestions came in. This feedback was more then welcome and resulted in some changes. So I pushed these changes to Github today and NanoGrids went from 0.03 to 0.04. This later (0.04) version is untested as I have to order the pcb’s.
This means the remaining NanoGrids PCB’s will be on sale in the shop. These are working board so what had to be changed.
- version 0.04 Just some text on the pcb’s to keep them apart
- Potentiometers have bigger holes to mount, so no more cutting or shaving they should fit now.
- Led orientation (added silkscreen).
- USB side text on silkscreen.
- Ground planes
- Panel Pot holes from 6,5mm to 8.4mm
Nothing major but still better.
I have uploaded the nanogrids.hex file this is the compile grids code tested on nanogrids. Should be the same as the original, but you don’t have to compile the code.
Just rename to Grids.hex and upload on the Arduino Nano.
Lately I’ve been get more questions about this module. The github repro has some basic information but not the whole story. Here is the background on the module, some insights and some help to make you build one yourself.
