Has anyone ever programmed a Stewart Platform, using ABB2 with Pro28, SSC32, and PS2?



obviously one using servos like this.

Rumor has it that EMC and EMC2 can run a Stewart Platform. Might look at their code.

Hi, Innerbreed. You posted a video about one of my older stewart platforms.



What do you want to know?
(Have you contacted me before through some other channel?)

Edit:

Very pretty.

Hi, Dan, Yes we spoke on YouTube about Stewart platforms. At the time of posting i was researching the Stewart Platform for a project i was doing. (the image you posted)

The project was inspired by your design. (servo placement) :wink:

More on the project and where it ended up:

Post how you made it to instructables and Lets Make Robots. Play your cards right you could win a laser cutter.
(I want to win a laser cutter so bad...)

Entered it into the Six-Axis Joystick to two challenges at instructables but it got rejected.
They said the Six-Axis Joystick (Stewart Platform) for Animatronics prop manipulation. does not fit the requirements for the Hack It! Challenge or the Halloween Props Challenge!

Oh well its prob best i don't get a laser cutter. might be dangerous in my hands. :lol:

Thought some of you guys might be interested. I'm making this into a kit if you want your own.

Hey people,

I've been making robots as kits for a few months now and someone asked for a Stewart Platform like the OP, so I made it happen.

Here's a link for more info: http://bit.ly/ZO0Dec

Code is on github in case anyone wants to join in or build their own.

Jonny, I'd love to build your joystick and offer it as a companion piece to my platform. Are you OK with that?

Consider contacting RobotShop about the accelerator program - it would allow you to design, get checks in the mail and not care about production / shipping / returns / logistics etc.
