Title: Open source Animatronic Animator Software
Post by: Napalm1432 on Nov 29, 2017, 01:27 pm
Hi there,

So i'm working on a project now, where i want to animate a animatronic parrot. Now using just code wasn't visual enough for me. so i needed something better, i had been looking around for utilities that let me animate servo's easily, but it never worked the way i needed it. Besides that, no open source options where available (not that i could find at least).

So, I decided to make my own open source software for it!

I already made quite the start. being able to easily set servo values, set framerates, animation lengths etc. saving it to a file. Which can then be read on on arduino and play the animation back in the right speed.

Now i made quite a good start, and functions for what i need so far. But ofcourse it can be better, way better.

That's where i need your help, sadly i'm not that much of a programming expert to do everything i want yet.
I have put this project up on github, so that anyone can work on it, or simply use the current version.
A readme is included there with much more information about what the software can, and can't do.
Thank you if you read all the way trough :), and thanks even more, if you're helping!

Take a look on Instructables for djsfantasi. I have an 'ible which describes my software. Ive developed a program which implements an interpreted language that I call a-code (for animatronic code). I believe listings are available there as well.

Perhaps this can help you?
