So, I had this idea and decided to give Arduino a try, I have been playing with it for about a month now and think I have the bare basics, so here is what I want to attenpt to do...
A single Stepper motor, I have a Large 2phase stepper bi polar. I have the Arduino Uno and Mega I have several Motor control shields, and limit switches
so in this project I would like to make the stepper motor spin one direction on a ball screw ( already setup) I want it to hit a limit switch which will reverse the direction and send it back down the screw, once it hits the limit switch on that end, it will go back again, think of it as pong with a stepper motor.
other things I would like to figure out as well
specify how many cycles (back and forth per cycle) adjust speed maybe add a couple triggers based on cycles.
So yeah I may be biting off more than I can chew for my first project, but what the hell dive in right?
Thanks in advance
