Electronic Rotary Table

As this repository contains a submodule now, use "git clone --recurse-submodules " to clone it

This project is designed to allow precise rotation of a workpiece for machining with, for example, a milling machine.

Typically a rotary table is used for this operation, which is hand-cranked with a vernier-style graduated display to allow accurate positioning. This allows gears, for example, to be cut.

This project entails putting a stepper motor on the worm drive which rotates the table, and controlling it with a Raspberry Pi. Unlike my Electronic Lead Screw project, this doesn't require precise timing or a powerful stepper - all it's doing is repeatably rotating the workpiece, which is then machined, then rotated again, until complete.

TO DO

  • Several components are shared from the ELS project so should be placed in a separate git submodule
  • UI code (very simple CLI interface)
  • Update UI to enable a step backwards if required
