Finally had some time this weekend to hook up a stepper drive, stepper motor, power supply, and a PC to see if EMC2 would move a motor. I’m pleased to report success! I just wired up a single axis for now, but it demonstrates that EMC2 is properly generating step and direction pulses out of an add-in PCI parallel port card.

Here’s quick little video showing it running the default program to cut out the EMC2 logo.

so what does the purple lizard do, then?
Nice . . . looks like it’s starting to come together, well, in baby steps anyways.
Oh, and nice music. Kind of went well with the motor sounds in the background 🙂
Yup, it’s slowly coming together. With any luck the mechanical stuff will be here this week…
The purple lizard… Well, if you don’t know, I sure can’t tell you.
