I would just like to firstly say thank you for your help so far. It has been quite taxing trying to understand all of this I must admit.
Let me reply to you:-AWOL
- When I did the mod, I set the servo running on the "knob" sketch and using the code mentioned in the comments here in the instructions.http://www.flickr.com/photos/randomskk/2569961787/in/photostream/
When the servo was running I got a tiny flat head screwdriver, turned the potentiometer either ways until I got to a 0 point where the gears stopped moving in either direction.
Then I disconnected it, snipped it, glued it and let it set.
Then plugged it in and here I am, scratching my head cr0sh
- Now that explains a lot to me. Seems I have been barking up the wrong tree for what I am actually needing. I knew it was able to be continuous but was not aware that I could not control the servo in degrees of motion now. Buying some expensive servo is not on the list at all.
What would happen if I had the servo, instead of playing around with the potentiometer, all I did was cut the "stop" off the gear and put it back together again? That would open it for 360 rotation and I would still of been able to control it via sketches? Right or Wrong??zoomkat
- Yikes that looks complicated. Im still learning this stuff so I will have to break that down and see how I go about using it. Thank you very much for providing it.
Basically what I am after is getting my HS-311 servo to be able to turn 360 degrees but also I am able to program/control its motion via sketches using the arduino IDE and eventually Processing. But thats a long way away it feels right now.
