thank you guys for your response

I have been away for a while but now that I'm back I tryed to install AVRDUDE on atmel studio 6 to upload my code with it
I did this by following this tutorial http://www.jayconsystems.com/tutorial_detail.php?tid=7

unfortunately I keep getting this error when i run the serial program

avrdude.exe: ser_open(): can't open device ".COM1": The system cannot find the file specified.

I double checked my COM port and changed the number aswell it doe work on the arduino IDE but not in atmel studio.

Did I mis something?

Dear programmers

I'm a year 1 TIE (technical information engineering) student so I thought I'd start a complex project to get more indepth with everything I learn at the university.

Later I came across this robot and thought it would be awsome to try and build this myself


so I went and orderd some components.

3 mini stepper motors
3 mini servo's
a mega2560
and some other random motors wires and what not.

My goal is to start by building 1 leg and then go on building the whole robot.

So now I was wondering if you guys can help me with some tips because im pretty mutch a beginner here.
For example I'm not very happy with the sketch IDE of Arduino is there a way for me to build my projects in a visual studio kind of IDE? are there other things I need to know?

I do have a long programming background but embedded programming is very new for me so any tips will help.

thank you all in advance and excuse me please if I made any english errors
