Firstly I'd like to say that I'm at an intermediate level of coding. I am looking for advice or any ideas that i coukd change. Also a point to some code if it's been done already so I can learn from it.
My aim is to create an arduino controlled controller for a motor driver with STEP and DIR inputs . It will have an LCD screen with input buttons. I'd like to be able to control the degree of rotation to 0.1 degree increments with adjustment using fine and coarse buttons. Or a keypad. I'd imagine up and down buttons will be easier. Once the degree has been set a button will be pressed and it will move to the desired location and stop. It can then be adjusted to another angle if required using the buttons to select the new degree angle. Once done you can press another button to move it back to its 'home' position of say -5 degrees.
This will be driving a reduction ratio of 100:1 with roller chain and a gearbox. The motor is an industrial 1KW servo with a driver STEP and DIR inputs so no different to a stepper motor really. It will be to bend steel pipe and tubing.
The mechanical side I can manage no problem but the coding will be a bit tricky. I've done very little with stepper motors. Any recommend libraries or reading material would be great.
Thanks in advance.
