Hello all! I’m new to this group, and electronics.
I have a nema 23 stepper motor and rotary table that I’d like to use as a variable speed turntable for shooting video of our chocolate products for my chocolate store. I’ll mount it table up, with a 12" aluminum disk, anodized black, for the tabletop.
I have no electronic experience. I’ve read that that working with the arduino circuit board is straight forward, and relatively easy, so I’d like to build this with an arduino.
I need variable speed 0-10 rpm, forward and reverse, knob or button controlled, because I would constantly be adjusting the speed. It would be nice to be able to run a specific rpm for a specific amount of time, stop for a specific amount of time, and then repeat that pattern as many times as I choose. Right now I just need the basic 0-10rpm and reverse, though.
If anyone out there is interested in helping, I need a list of hardware to complete this, and instructions on how to put it all together. I’ve attached an image of the stepper and rotary table.
