Instacode is a GUI front end made with python + tkinter. It generates NXC code which gets compiled and deployed via the nbc app.
- Drive methods (Turn and Straight) with high precision (calibrated for standard NXT 1.0 tires)
- Arm method with high precision (calibrated for a 12:40 gear ratio)
- Loop and switches, which can be triggered off of light, ultrasonic, and touch sensors.
- Saving and loading
- Builtin download and run capability
Here’s a brief demo of a development build:
