Hi Dan did I read somewhere you made a home made sky cam if so could you share how you went about it as I’d like to make one for my home workshop 3 meter x 3 meter.
Looking forward to your feed back any hints tips over what kit you used that would be great 👍🏻DanMarch 12, 2018 at 14:22 #19389
Well my first one was merely a proof of concept.
Were I to do it today I’d use a 4 axis motor controller like the RUMBA or RAMPS.
The Makelangelo firmware already supports crude skycam kinematics.
We don’t currently have a kit before skycams because demand is too low.
But feel free to ask questions and post your progress, we’re very interested and happy to advise.simon maddocksApril 15, 2018 at 12:45 #19697
Hi Dan finally getting around to try your software to create a crude sky cam, i has purchased 4 nema 17 stepper motors and a MKS GEN V1.4 control board and drivers ,am i right in thinking your software won’t allow manual mode if software doesn’t see motors attached to the control board? Just having quick look before i get carried away and un pack all my bits!DanApril 15, 2018 at 16:22 #19702
AFAIK the MKS Gen v1.4 board is not currently supported by makeangelo software. Do you have the pin configuration? It could be added.

This confuses me. the software can never “see” motors attached. at best the software gets the correct “hello world, I am a MACHINE_X” and then it knows “oh right, i support machine_x, i will now let you do…things.
