    I love DIY moco! You're not wasting time, you're doing something useful and having fun in the process. That's how I justify my "experiments" in this area.

    Are you using Mantis for control?

    You need to get this material over to Doug Kropla for showcasing on his Facebook DIY Moco page...

    Im not using Mantis - never heard of it.. using my own rubbish app.. Ill check that out!

    Writeing an app is fast thinning in the amusement factor.

    I do hope to use it commercially so indeed not, I hope a waste of time

    Mantis is the go-to for turnkey indy professional moco... seen in action here...

    It's basically a high frequency 8 channel CNC controller board, built out in a box with good I/O options, with a full custom motion control software written to run light on older laptops if needed. It will work with your steppers and existing drivers and make move programming fun. Or more fun. Or at least "fun-ish".

    Here's the site...

    Really, really, really cool. Well done. The "up and over" is fantastic.

    The 'modularity' is that one axis can be removed from the rig and set on a bench/tripod.. this will allow 'up and over' mixed with a product rotation.

    Not really a filming application but will allow basically a 3d set of photos to be taken of a product from many many angles.. a web shop tool if you get me as the user should be able to mouse over a product and spin it in 3 axes.. maybe its called photogrametry or something

    I need to hook up with some digital people and see what they can make of the raw footage
