Please excuse lack of knowledge brand new to this!! (Picture attached for reference)
I want to mount 4 x nema 17 stepper motors on a square board at each corner (A,B,C,D) each motor will have a pulley on it with a line , all four lines will attach to a central weighted point (Point of pyramid) . I would like to send co ordinates to the arduino in the form of (X,Y,Z) which will control the motors to extend or retract the lines and move the central point to the co ordinates sent.
I have created a formula on excel to calculate the length of each line needed in correspondence to the co ordinates entered. (Attached pic)
I would like to use a program like Fusion 360 to create a profile and create tool paths , then generate the G code and be able to send that to the Ardruino
I have the Arduino mega board with CNC shields
What i would like help with:
- How to I translate the formula i have to each motor
- what do i load to get the G code to the arduino or can i just use some thing like Grbl controller
Or any advise to assist would be great
Sorry again for lack of knowledge still learning !!!
