You guys did an amazing job with this robot! congrats!
Is it possible to have more details on how to build the stepper motors without buying the Maker Kit? I checked the GitHub and the BOM doesn’t have the details of the motors.
In addition; can you share the schematics for the steppers and the shields? I just want to make it on a prototype.
I live in USA (+ 25% Tarrif) and I just don’t have the money to buy the maker kit; I want to try to find cheap steppers, and the wiring connections. If you like I can make videos of my process (from 3d printing to final assembly and testing).
Thanks for the help!Edouard RenardKeymasterFebruary 12, 2019 at 2:17 pmPost count: 239
Thanks for your kind words!
Unfortunately we don’t give or sell the details of the PCB for the NiryoStepper motors (though you can find overview schematics here on github). For several reasons we only sell Maker Kits as a minimum kit.
If you just want to get some “servo-like” or closed-loop stepper motors, you can search for Mechaduino on Google, or check out closed-loop stepper motors here for example. I guess this is more close to what you need.
Hope this helps!jdmanParticipantJanuary 5, 2020 at 6:07 amPost count: 8
I also live in the USA and starting to build the Niryo. Curious how much progress you have made ? Can we collaborate ?jchristiParticipantJanuary 6, 2020 at 11:19 amPost count: 4
I am just experimenting to get mechaduino run via can bus mcp2515 connection.would be cool to see to get is working.
The Raspberry and niryo Software does already work with mcp2515 and scan for can bus connections.
As mechaduino is based on Arduino M0 I just tried quick an dirty to upload niryo stepper firmware on it but without success so far.
Will keep trying to get it run and would need some help and advice from experts.
Would be interessting to have some coding expert to adapt niryo stepper firmware for mechaduino accordingly.
