I'm an artist looking to hire someone for a small project to help me produce some sculptures using electronics.
The sculptures will be made from flatbed scanners that will need to be emptied of everything but the moving lightbulb and the stepper motor, and replaced with a controller that uses the stepper to move the lightbulb back and forth across the scanner glass. I need to produce several of these with different speeds for each one. Its also crucial that the final product requires as little setup time as possible, hopefully just plugging in the scanner would make it go.
I've produced one of these 2 years ago on my own but it was really janky, so this time I need an expert who can help me finesse the project. I have some old code from that project so you can use it for reference.
I'm based in Santa Barbara, CA - 90 min away from LA, so it would be best if I can find someone in LA.
As far as pay goes, tell me what's appropriate and we can figure it out.
