Tools>Board  Select the correct option for 328.  Is it a 328 or 328p?
Tools> Burn Bootloader.

Did some more testing and you're right.  After I hooked it up the right way it worked..  But now I have a problem with relays 4, 6, 7, and 8.  They do nothing.  Going to check my soldering tomorrow.

I do have some revisions for the board to make it easier to assemble though, but really only cosmetic..

Thanks to everyone

I see your point.  It's getting late here so I will try tomorrow doing some more troubleshooting.

Thanks Crossroads.  +1

What is Vcc connected to?

Vcc is 24V supply.  Now that I am looking closer, do I have Vcc and +5V backwards?

What do IN1-IN5 connect to?

IN1-8 are Arduino inputs to activate the optos.

Well, I finally got around to assembling the relay board and guess what?  It doesn't work..  No LEDs, nothing.  When the 24V is connected I am getting ~21V on the Arduino input pins..

If anyone could take a look at my Eagle files, would appreciate any insight.

Nice work, I have yet to make a cube and I've been using Arduino for ever..  I have like 5 Arduinos and countless custom Arduinos.  I think I will put a SMD LED version on the drawing board..

Thanks scswift.  Got them today.  Nice packaging too!

Nice! Would like to see some pics of what you've printed?

Haven't printed anything worth a Nobel prize..  I am in the process of teaching myself 3D design and tried a number of CAD programs.  I think I found one that suits me, Solidworks.

Here is a clevis that costs around $12 and made it for pennies


Other things include a hood for my camera and some upgrade parts for the 3D printer.

Looks good!  But the true test is how it performs.  I think your soldering job looks better than mine and I use hot air with paste for my SMD work..

The point was it's faster using Google to answer questions than to post.  I probably could have worded it better..

Got a new Makerbot Replicator off Ebay for around 2/3 the price from the official website. 

Replicator Article - https://www.inventables.com/technologies/makerbot-replicator-3d-printer

I have printing non-stop for about a month now.  Just had to purchase my first set of filament.  This thing is amazing, especially if you're designing something that needs prototyping and don't like waiting.

The majority of people don't read the stickies.  Doesn't matter if it was a global announcement that flashed in red in the middle of the screen.  People seem to think that making a post, typing a 2 page report of their problem and then waiting for 1 day or 2 to get an answer that would have easily taken 30 seconds with a Google search.

Once you're around here for awhile, you will notice this.  If you're like most long term members here, have a list of Frequently Asked Questions that you have the answers for typed up and ready to copy and paste..

I can probably speak for everyone when i say that no one will do that for free, especially since you want the rights to the design.  My advice to you would be to seek a professional design and assembly firm.
