Playing with easydriver stepper motor driver with arduino nano, control by joystick and power by two 18650 battery, I’ll share my code after I clean it up, just in case anyone need it for reference. Good day! source
In Part 1, we set up the Arduino & GRBL shield. Now, let’s use inexpensive linear motion hardware (links below!) to assemble the bearings, rods and steppers into a functional CNC machine!
In this video, we look at the CAD model of the machine, discuss basic design philosophy, test it’s accuracy (amazing results!), then do the final GRBL set up so that we can export CAM G-Code to use on the machine!
We just added a Part 3 with a Z-axis upgrade! Check it out at https://youtu.be/gzLYNSQEPDk !

In this video I show you part 1 of my robot arm with stepper motors. Driven by a Nema 17 with a 1:15 gearbox,big easy driver and a Arduino uno. I run this sample:

This a companion video to “Arduino Programming Tutorials || How to Construct Time-Sensitive While Loops”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFocBnoq8vwo
If you haven’t already viewed that video, then I’d encourage you to do so before or after viewing this one.
This video includes examples of how ‘time-sensitive’ while loops can be used to control steppers motors (1) independently, (2) in a pseudo- simultaneous manner, and in a more (3) standard linear actuation scenario. Such loops can be used in cases where one knows how long he/she wants a stepper to step but not necessarily the exact number of steps. It can also be used in many [...]
