    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...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDzrfNepMTA

    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

    Love this! Would love to see BTS of the rig taking these shots as well. I've recently been getting into building Moco rigs myself though in the early steps (just getting done with learning how to control steppers with arduino and through dragonframe. Would love to know how progress is coming along with this. Would be curious to know what strength motors you are using as you are getting some really solid shots with your rig!

    I've heard of mantis but also heard of people using dragon frame lately. I really need to dig into the differences but it's hard to find out details on them both it seems in a comparison.

    The latest, still unreleased promo vid is here with some BTS. I release the video when I get the 3d render of the shoe back.
    https://vimeo.com/340989485/8cb80facd1

    I have nema 23 on slide and tilt

    Pan is nema 17 in three formats.. straight, geared down and epicyclic.

    I do have some issuses with backlash that was not properly adressed at the design stages

    Bigger drive belts have more backlash.

    Doing an oral B product shoot at the moment.. its OK but Im over budget time wise.
