Hi folks, figured I’d post something perhaps interesting to the ChiliPeppr community. My goal with ChiliPeppr was to make an open source environment to let you control hardware. Early versions of that vision has worked with CNC control as well as programming IoT devices like ESP8226 and ESP32. One of the things I’m working on is a new workspace for controlling a 6 degrees-of-freedom 3D printed robot.
The idea is that the robot would have a workspace like TinyG or Grbl where you can see each of the 6 axes for the robot. Jog each axis much like CNC. The 3D viewer would show the robot like below:
If anyone is interested in the project, here’s a couple videos of the robot arm build that would be controlled from ChiliPeppr. Each joint will use the ChiliPeppr Cayenn protocol which I described in another video a while ago.
