Nice thread title..  Google the error message and you will find the solution.

The jumper on J12 should always be in SW mode.  You will need to read the manual as well http://download.tigal.com/veear/EasyVR_User_Manual_3.4.2.pdf

The manual will tell how to program and operate the shield with an Arduino.

Word of advice, you need to have Commander generate the code you need to put on the Arduino.

You are going to have to do some hacking.  You need to find the pins that the motor shield  are not using and hook up the sensor to those pins and program accordingly.

Why would you want them?

I think I've pretty much seen all the tutorials. 

This shows up alot with Google - http://www.instructables.com/id/Adding-Custom-Graphics-to-EAGLE-PCB-Layouts/

I've also used 2 different methods for creating them, first is the stock script, import-bmp.ulp and the second is a 3rd party script, bmp2eagle.exe.

Attached are the files.

I've tried both Gerbers and .brd files.  I am putting the logo on layer 25 (tNames).  I'm pretty sure I am missing something simple.  Like I said, I can create the logos of different sizes, I just can't get it to render with OSH Park.  I have also checked the Gerber with a Gerber viewer and they show fine..  I have tried lower the rez on the bmp file, but it still makes the tiny rectangles.  I need tot find a way to lower the rez that is generated.

I am in contact with OSH Park, but they don't know either.  I did find out that they use 300 DPI printers, not 200.

I have an issue with OSH Park where custom logos will not render on their site.  I know they have a 200 DPI printer and have tried numerous methods without success.  I know it can be done.

Has anybody had success with OSH Park and custom logos?
What have you done that was different than the tutorials plastered over the net?

Thanks

The only thing I can suggest is to move the mic.  Not much you can do to the mic in this situation.

Not a pro, but have lots of experience with the EasyVR system.  It works great once the code and mic work.

The attached pic may help you.  Piece of advise, you need to get away from Fritzing, it will only cause problems in the future.  Take it from personal experience.

Most hobbyists use Eagle from Cadsoft.  It's free with some limitations.

I have a Tektronix 2236 100MHz 2 channel Oscilloscope with DMM that I do not use.  Works great, but I never had it professionally calibrated.  It seems to be pretty close though (I never had any issues with calibration).  

Comes with new probes and power cord.

Asking $150 and I will ship it for free.  I will post some pics up tomorrow.

Ask any questions here and if you're serious PM me.

Ah yes, I forgot to mention that I will buy from US based sellers.  But occasionally, I have to go overseas.  I highly recommend thaishine from Ebay, good prices and he ships fast.

I see you erased Terry's store from your last reply, lol.  I haven't ordered anything from there yet..  But I may just because he's Terry!

Please forgive the thread highjacking...

I tend to be less forgiving.  If a vendor sends me stuff in a single unlabeled bag, and did not list that it was a grab bag, I will not buy from them after that.  I could possibly understand if it was just resistors or capacitors, where you have to use the color codes (though I prefer to have capacitors properly labeled, since I am slightly color blind, and I have had troubles telling some resistor bands apart.

I agree.

I have been impressed by dipmicro.com, adafruit.com, sparkfun.com, pololu.com, and robotshop.com that do label all of their components, and have data sheets for just about every part.  In the case of adafruit.com and sparkfun.com, they also have example code.  So, I tend to go back to vendors that go the extra step, even if they are slightly more expensive.  If they are much more expensive, then I have to weigh the pros and cons of where I buy.

I do have Ebay vendors that I return to quite often for the same reasons.   I use Digikey for the rare parts, love their shipping times.  As well as Sparkfun.  I use Sparkfun because of their open source and customer service.  I like keeping businesses like that working.
