Post polargraph controler software questions..
on: June 25, 2015, 13:25

Hi there all!!

I'm using the polargraph kit i bought from sandy,
and since i use 2 self build prusa i3's 3d printers which work quite well and see the difference and the similarities between the polargraph and a 3d printer i'm asking myself a few questions i can't answer myself..

#1; is there a possibility to get the vector optimizer in the controler?

#2; is there a possibility to let the servo arm go in 3 possibilities? so the pen is taken of the paper in the way it came from left or right... (les stripes, les strain on the servo) or maybe do a dual servo..

#3; is there a way to get the programm using less CPU..

#4 wildcard question; is there a possebillety to maybe get it running as a addon to perhaps Cura the 3d printer programm wich gets better really fast wich each and every update, and lift on with the evolution of this program..

Hi Mark, yep very similar tech. All of these CNC machines are basically the same.

1# I've done a little bit of work in getting some optimiser built into the controller, but nothing ready yet. I will try to prioritise this.

2# Not something I have any plans to do.

3# Could try turning the frame rate down. By default it just runs as fast as it can. put frameRate(1); in the setup() function to restrict it to 1 frame per second.

4# Not something I have any plans to do.
