PentiumPC 119 Posted May 7, 2013 Share Posted May 7, 2013 Not 100% a MSP430 project but it is used as the stepper and camera trigger control. It is based on a cheap china made (no offense) slider, seem like a IGUS clone, quality wasn't too good but ok as a time lapse rail. Control was achieve thru a MSP430 Launchpad, a BT booster pack, home switch and trigger / stepper board (with easy driver) I made years ago. Other parts includes , a NEMA 17 stepper, common skate board bearing for idler, and 2GT belt, mountings are 3D printed, will make aluminium parts when I have some free time. stl for prints can be found here. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:85274 video shot with this prototype slider can be found on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2OwjdrRMq2w Code and schematics to follow (once I have a good working version) Cheers and have fun. bluehash, pine, Rickta59 and 3 others 6 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
