Rather ambitiously (my second Ardunio project) I am trying to create a 2D plotter using an old Roland XY-plotter frame with intact stepper motors and Solenoid.
I have the hardware side completed and have used the sample sketches for stepper motors to get them moving about and drawing simple squares etc.
However, I have no idea how to implement drawing vector images from a computer?
I have investigated the G-code libraries and have absorbed as much as I can from the web on the subject of 2D and 3D Arduino plotters and printers.
Can anyone help me in understanding the steps I will need to take to take a simple vector image and get it to drive through the Arduino!
So far I am thinking the process is something like.
Many thanks for any help, rorroz.
