Working in Tandem – Unconventional XY-axis layouts for 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC milling, engraving or pick and place.
Below I outline three separate concepts for moving in the X and Y plane with a specific emphasis on minimising the moving mass, maintaining high mechanical stiffness, reducing backlash and allowing two stepper motors to work in tandem. It is my hope that these concepts, … Continue reading
In my previous post I pulled apart an old pen plotter revealing it to be controlled by two brushed DC motors. In order to power each DC motor a H-bridge was required but I had none on hand. However it turns out a H … Continue reading
If you have pulled apart a printer, fax or scanner then there is a high likelihood that you have found a few photo interrupters. Some of these may be pre-packaged in a plastic housing with three wires attached which you can modify to use … Continue reading
Still playing with my new toy, the Arduino Mega, this time with an character LCD with a parallel interface. The LCD I had laying around but you can buy them pretty much anywhere at low cost. I used this guide … Continue reading
An Arduino Mega landed on my door step last week and I have been playing with it ever since. It was purchased from Australianrobotics.com.au for only $46AUD ($42USD) due to their grand opening special. I have the intent of eventually making the … Continue reading
