Now is the time to make the electronics and the programming of the motors to receive the code and move the platform in the axes x and y
For this we use as an electronic board:
Ramps 1.4 from a regular 3D printer
We put a battery cable of the type:
12V 5A Power Supply
And we use:
Nema 14 Stepper Motors
Endstops with mechanical switchs
To connect the Micro-machine to our computer, we use the software: Pronterface.
You can download here: Pronterface
In Pronterface it is necessary to set the COM port of the machine, and press connect, and the machine must be automatically connected to the computer
In the program, it is easy to manually bypass the printer by using the arrows on the software to move the platform.
Press Connect. The Pronterface right pane should show data related to a successful connection.
Now you can manually control the printer by using the arrows to find out for yourself which axis is which.
We did an experiment with a pen to see the result
Everything went well :)
