Inventor 2040 W (Pico W Aboard) Which UF2?

Where do I find the UF2 download for the Inventor 2040 W (Pico W Aboard) ? I would love to try the examples.

I’d try 1.19 and see what happens. The Motor Controller and Servo 2040 were out then, and the Pico Audio etc. If they new these products were on the way, they likely slipped support into that uf2, but kept quiet on it.

All the examples need the inventor library and all I get is;

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 2, in <module>
ImportError: no module named 'inventor'

Its useless without the library!

Ah, OK have a look here,

Unfortunately, still did not find the library required.

Your other option is to try the other individual examples for the stand alone versions.
If your really bored at can’t wait. ;)

Hi @Tonygo2 - we’re working on getting an official Pico W build out as soon as possible but the W stuff is still in beta in upstream MicroPython so everything’s a bit up in the air at the moment!

You could give this beta build a go in the meantime: CI: Add PicoW MicroPython build. · pimoroni/pimoroni-pico@f1a5c5c · GitHub (you’ll need to be logged in to Github). I think it was built before Automation and Inventor were merged in though, so to use those classes you’ll need to copy across or to your Pico using Thonny.

Thank you. That got the RGB LEDs working.
Wireless partly works: you need to install urequests library to get
3.8.2. HTTP with urequests
from the Official Guide to work.

I’ll wait a bit while wireless gets sorted.

# Connect to network
import network
from secret import ssid,password
wlan = network.WLAN(network.STA_IF)
wlan.connect(ssid, password) 
# Make GET request
import urequests
r = urequests.get("")
r = urequests.get("")
print("\nTime from ''\n")

Time from ''

{'milliseconds_since_epoch': 1656931337110, 'date': '07-04-2022', 'time': '10:42:17 AM'}

Great for getting the time without a RTC.
