Using digital Scale in processing


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to find away to use a digital scale with processing. is there a Library that i need to download or just using code?

I’m at a loss i tried using Arduino but i would have to build the scale, using a digital one would just mean connecting it via USB to the computer

Thanks

What kind of digital scale do you use?
If your digital scale generate xml file or other format, on the computer you could be able to read the xml file and do what you want with that in Processing. In that case you only have to use a Xml library.

I have done a program that deal with a Dymo label printer and it uses xml file like this:

maybe your scale uses a system like this.
