    I am working on getting my Arduino connected to SimTools. I have already loaded and Arduino profile and the motor responds to potentiometer. I can’t figure out how to send signals from SimTools to the Arduino though. I’ve looked through a lot of forums and I’ve tried everything that I’ve found. I saw that someone was using SMC to bridge the two, but it won’t connect to the Arduino when I tried it.

    Motor 2 won’t turn on and it’s feedback maxes out.
