Here is the motor controller nearly finished, driving a small stepper motor.
The controller is built with...
- Arduino UNO (main CPU)
- Adafruit Motorshield (controls the stepper motors)
- Adafruit Screwshield (for interfacing the switch controls)
So far, so good. Next is some woodworking for putting together the scale mockup for strength tests.
This idea can very likely fall on it's face (probably will). But I am having fun.
