From the Forum: Adafruit Motor Shield Incorporated into Stewart Platform Project #arduino

Rotary Stewart Platform v4 02

Adafruit Motor Shield incorporated into Stewart Platform Project, shared by MarginallyClever on the Adafruit forums!

I see a lot of university projects that use stewart platforms and it seems that in every one the students reinvent the wheel – or in this case, platform – to achieve some other goal. What I mean is they have to build a SP because there’s no standard model they can just buy and use for their project. I aim to fix this.

Using an Arduino and Adafruit Motor Shield v2 I’m designing a Stewart Platform that I hope will be both affordable and easy to use. I post it here because Adafruit might like to show what these boards can do. It runs on GCODE that I recently checked into https://github.com/MarginallyClever/GcodeCNCDemo so you know it’s open source.

I’d love some help & feedback from you or your students with the forward kinematics. I plan to upgrade this model with some limit switches. Maybe someone out there is designing the $10 encoder I’ve always wanted….
