WORK IN PROGRESS. I'm still having the same issue with the set up. No matter what setting, it rotates, twice , dividing the setting in two, per rotation, then it steps one. While I'm recruiting help ... I added a case, walmart fishing dept. under 4$. I also took my long IR led & wires off, and mounted an IR on the left side of the case. The cardboard lid is just a template and a temporary safety precaution. This is my first Arduino Project, which include many other firsts ... but First things first... I have to resolve this 2 revolutions +1 step problem.
None, yet. I'm hiring a programmer to review the code. I will update my post if I can resolve the issue.
THE CODE ...const int stepsPerRevolution = 200*64; // change this to fit the number of steps per revolution for your motorThe stepper motor I purchased is 1.8 degrees 200 steps per revolution ... so ... ? what is the *64 ... remember I'm new to C ...
critical error ... my stepper motor rotates twice, +1 step, for every setting.On the stepsPerRevolution ... what is the *64??? this is critical because the camera will still be shooting during the second revolution ... HELP?
const int stepsPerRevolution = 200*64; // change this to fit the number of steps per revolution for your motorThe stepper motor I purchased is 1.8 degrees 200 steps per revolution ... so ... ? what is the *64 ... remember I'm new to C ...The stepper motor driver I purchased was the EasyDriver. I have no idea how to edit the micro stepping mode on the driver itself.Help!
OK! I'm almost there! I'm on third base, so to speak. First lesson, cheap boards from China, have issues. After having to scrap the first Mega Board, I got the green light! LCD Shield is running, I uploaded the Sketch, motor is turning, led is flickering ... But ... here is the curve ball ... the steps, are not, per one revolution. For example, 100 steps may turn twice, 50 steps per revolution ... Any ideas?
