LED Matrix Font Creator

Post by waywardson07 » Thu Apr 17, 2014 2:35 pm

Hi everyone, I created a program to assist in the designing of new fonts for LED Matrices and thought that I would share it here for anyone that is interested in using it.

Here is a screenshot:

I have described how to use the program here on my blog if anyone has any interest in that...

take care all!! :D

UPDATE: I created a Mac version of the program. Here is a screenshot:

I updated my blog with the Mac version as well.

A big thanks for sharing! This is exactly the sort of program that I like making to make life just that little bit easier when working with LED matrix displays.

What did you code this in?

Thanks brad!

It's coded in c#.
I'll most likely make a MAC port as well, because I use my MacBook more often than I use my windows machine. I'll update the post when I do.

Be sure to let me know of a Mac version since that's also what I use mostly :)

What compiler / IDE did you use to make it?

Brad... I used Visual Studio 2012 for the windows version. It could have been written in basic or c++ as well, but i chose c#...

Also, I updated the main post with the new Mac version I made.

Thanks for the Mac version, just downloaded and tested it and it too works like a charm.

Is there any chance you could share the Xcode project so I can take a look at your source code?
