How would I go about making an Arduino control four Lego motors for a 3D printer? Answered
I am trying to make a Cartesian 3D printer out of Legos
I have the printer almost done.
It is time to start thinking about how I am going to control it.
The RepRap uses the Arduino, I believe, although I'm probably wrong.
I have an Arduino Mega
The motors are RCX geared motors.
They are powering a few worm gears, and all the setups I have are so far identical.
I have, or will when this is finished, X,Y, and Z axes, as well as a filament feeder.
I could just adjust the values of some already present software. This is probably the easiest solution.
If worst comes to worst, I can replace the Lego motors with some sort of servos.
So i guess my question is: where can i get 3D printer control software for an Arduino?
And also, what random things do you know that could be helpful to this project? all comments welcome
