eBells are 3D printed and some cosmetic scars, blobs and lines occur as a result of the printing process. A
string of plastic may also come away and hang loose.
Previous experience with motion controllers and our prototypes has shown that the cables may fracture if
repeatedly bent in the same place. Cables can also be damaged by tripping over them,
holding the eBells by their cable, or dropping them. The lifetime of a cable can be extended by always
ensuring the cable is free to hang from the bell and not held tightly against one’s body.
This is a common issue, and there are a number of causes. Please read the resolution carefully to determine the root cause.
If your eBells are connected as confirmed by the steps in the previous section, but do not ring, try the following resolutions.
If your eBells are connected, but do not strike at the expected point in the swing, try the following resolutions.
This can occur after restarting or sleeping your computer especially if your USB ports are still powered
when the computer is off or sleeping.
It is desirable, particularly when ringing online, for your bell image onscreen to start swinging as soon as you swing your bell, but to stay still and not flutter when
at handstroke or backstroke rest.
The eBell button presses are passed to activate the associated function in your chosen simulator. If they do not work check the following resolutions.
