Gearing in one form or another will accomplish the mechanical positioning. Spending enough money to be able to read position (a rotary scale, Farrand or equivalent) is another story.
I haven't figured out yet how to change the A and B axes displays to show only 3 decimal places.
you'd have to edit the source
why does it matter?
if you set the scale to be 1000 instead of 40 I think the three decimal places will agree
but again your rotary velocity might suffer
or if this is still just for your demo, just switch to commanded coordinates and worry about resolution later
you won't have steppers anyway, so working on step rate issues is a waste of time
step rate and step resolution
alex_jon1 is now known as alex_joni
resolution will sacrifice speed... and speed will sacrifice resolution
or.. just get some servos that can handle the job properly
Have a good day, all. Thanks for the help today.

I am *very* disappointed by the way ...
I was away. why are you disappointed?
I spent all that time finding a nice plane for you and you havent bought it!

click "aeroplanes" on left ... then "harrier" ;)
nice, well I investigated the robinson R22/backyard thing
until I saw the flight envelope.
ghet a harrier ... those are not old ones either, FA2, new build, 1998
less than 1500 hours on the clock
that was a 15/20million plane no that lon ago
let's see if I have enough change in my pocket...
less than 50k :)
If I have a small table that slides on rod and bronz brushings, what would be a good way to "lock" it at a certain position?
lol, no. I mean like a thumb tab, or lock lever =)
probably some sort of thumb tab or lock lever then
bore a hole through an alloy block, split it with a saw, make a clamp
like some sorta of clam shell?
