How do you connect the NMX to Graffik on a Mac?

I'd like to test out Graffik to control the NMX while we're waiting for the iOS app
to become available, is there any documentation / tutorial for connecting and controlling the NMX via Graffik?

I too would like to know. Looking at the source code on GitHub, there doesn't seem to be any BTLE code, so I presume a USB to 485 cable is required but I do not know the PIN layout on the NMX side to build such a cable.
The feature set of the current Android app is limited (I particularly miss being able to do a 3 point move) I had hoped to be able to code my own iOS or Android app.

I asked this question direct and was told, "Unfortunately the Graffik software is currently being updated for the NMX,.." unfortunately no timespan was given. What I was told: You can pick up an inexpensive android tablet and get started right away, i've been testing the Asus Memo 7 here and it's workign great, I got it on sale for $80 over the holidays."

Hello guys, we are making fast progress on the updated graffik application for NMX windows and osx support, I apologize for the delays, we're doing our best here I promise you.

Jeremy you will find the NMX command guide here: http://support.dynamicperception.com/hc/en-us/articles/203223809-NMX-Command-Structure-

All you need to do is establish a connection (USB, Bluetooth, or Mocobus)and start sending commands. I would be glad to help you develop your own app, please contact us at support@dynamicperception.com and I will get you in contact with my engineers.

This won't exactly speed up development, and asking for an ETA is frowned upon, but I definitely would just like to show that I'm hoping for a controllable app akin to Graffik on Android. The controller has so much potential, but the app feels like it's limiting the controller at the moment.

Brian, not sure I agree with you there, as an app developer myself I understand the pressures of users update expectations, its just that in the NMX Kickstarter promo material from almost a year ago the smart phone app was illustrated as having individual axis keyframes, and Graffik was presented as being able to control the NMX. I understand that there may be delays, however with no communication of an ETA and quite number of users having purchased the hardware I think it is fair enough to provide a little friendly motivation for the Dynamic Perception crew to get a move on in providing software that matches the original promised capabilities.

I have seen some recent commits on the OMLibraries, concerning NMX Support.
Sounds like you reached a milestone ...
Am I right, when guessing that now the work to support NMX in Graffik is about to start?
