The PolargraphSD has a touch-screen interface. It allows you to do a few neat things in standalone mode.
Functions are split up into a couple of menus:
- Lock and release the motors
- Pause and resume running
- Raise and lower the pen lift
and then buttons which will take you to other menus
- Draw from SD
Draw from SD allows you to browse the filenames of the files that are on the SD card (if there is one inserted), and choose one to draw.
More… present a couple of extra menus to adjust things.
- Motor max speed and acceleration
- Pen size
- Pen position
Note if you insert or remove the SD card, then you more-or-less always need to reset it. I would urge you not to do it while the USB cable is connected too – it seems to confuse it very much.
