Looks like I won't be able to progress as fast as I want on this project. Being a father, husband, freelancer and more takes away the hours, but I'll document the process here anyway in case others want to try something similar. Today I re-did the X-axis completely and also modified the Y axis a bit. In addition, I printed a cable chain so the wiring don't cause any problems as well as some endstop-mounts for Sainsmart/MakeBlock. Look mom - it moves!
This is starting too look like something. This is just a few lines of code with the AccelStepper library. Servo-arm up next!04 February 2014 at 1:15 am
