New to this. I have 3D printer experience and driving Stepper motors. I’m fascinated by the geared/encoded motor of the Maslow. I’ve looked at the driver shield. Just curious if anyone can explain how the encoder is being used in the system?
So, the encoder is sending back pulses to the Arduino? And how is that used for precise movements or steps?
I understand how a standard stepper motor driver gets a direction and step command from the arduino.
So with these motors, they just turn on in one direction or the other until the encoder sends back the amount of pulses it desires?
How accurate is this compared to a stepper? Obviously it works here.
Just want to understand the electronic set-up.
