I on purpose do not look at other robot designs to create the software. The reason why I do this is to force my imagination to come up with my own design.

I am at a stage where I can now move the robot. Up to 8 stepper-motors in parallel all in less than 3 µS per step. And extendable to multiples of 8 more motors in parallel if the need is there.

The question is:

Every single point above has an effect on how the stepper movement steps must be executed.

Big challenges ahead :-)

That is what I love :-)


Observations:


To be continued.
