  • 3DOF Ball on Plate Using Closed Loop Stepper Motors

    well, de design is still not finished. I'd like to get it running, and once it's running as it should I'll post the model files.

  • 3DOF Ball on Plate Using Closed Loop Stepper Motors

    Ok. I was finally able to publish the video. Youcan see it here: https://youtu.be/bmZijILO7dgUnfortunately instructables uploaded the videobut it never published it. My 3D printed 3DOF is finally assembled. Allelectrical seems to work well. Need to do the calibration but the serial portgives me 6 digit output when I touch the screen. Also My screen might bebackwards. When I initially start it it’ll vibrate and wiggle tremendously,then the rattling will die down. As far as it’s connected to the computer and Ionly cut the steppers power when turning it on and off it’ll always come backto the same position. Edit 1: In the meantime I figured out thescreen calibration. My 8.4” screen axes are backwards relative to the originallayout. I think it works fine now. If I to...

If I touch the screen off center it’ll liftup that side, and I think that’s how it should be since the ball then will rolltowards the center.

    It’s assembled. All electrical seems to work well. Need to do the calibration but the serial port gives me 6 digit output when I touch the screen. Also My screen might be backwards.
