Still haven’t been able to get into the shop to build out the frame for the the arm yet. However, that doesn’t mean I’ve been idle!
I have it set up so that ever N’th time the arduino sends a serial line transmission of the current values it updates the LCD. This means the LCD isn’t as current as the serial monitor, but I found the refresh rate of the LCD was too slow to keep up. I plan to add more functionality to fine tune this via the C# app and the CLI, but for this morning just getting it running was good enough for me. I’d like to add “Enable-LcdUpdate”, “Disable-LcdUpdate”, and “Set-LcdInterval” commands. Possibly an option to choose what is displayed as well (servo’s vs sensors or something like that).
