Re: Control dc motor speed - PID controller

I'm fairly new to PID controllers myself, if you are new to PID controllers as well, play with this PID Simulator to get a feel for how the different terms will affect performance. It helped me get a better feel for PID tuning. I was working on something similar using an Arduino and saw the same kin...

Re: Generating autodocs for upython

I used the Sphinx sphinx.ext.autodoc extension to document my last MicroPython project. In my conf.py file I added the projects lib directory using sys.path.insert and autodoc_mock_imports for the rest of the modules. sys.path.insert(0, os.path.abspath('../../lib')) # add my lib modules autodoc_mock...

Re: MicroPython based 3D printed drawing robot powered by a TTGO T-Display

Sounds like you have put a considerable amount of time and effort into developing this project. I notice you have also created great dos as well. If you were to guess the total hours to get your design to this standard how many hours do you think you have spent?? Thats hard to say. I wrote the firs...

Re: MicroPython based 3D printed drawing robot powered by a TTGO T-Display

Did you design all the hardware yourself?? Yes, but the idea is based on the Low-Cost, Arduino-Compatible Drawing Robot by MakersBox. After doing a class with MakersBox's design, that was scheduled for 2 hours but ended up running for 6, I wanted something easier and quicker to build for beginners....

That's quite impressive, not an easy thing to achieve that accuracy.

I like how you stamp it rather than try to drag the pen, is this how you get better accuracy??
Since the bot turns pretty slowly, I lift the pen during rotations to avoid leaving a blob of ink.

Re: MicroPython based 3D printed drawing robot powered by a TTGO T-Display

just really impressed by how well you documented this project. Also you seem to have gone the extra mile with the ui/font and preloaded fat image to download. Thank you. I was hoping the preloaded fat image would help beginners get started. I used an arduino version of the bot for classes I gave at...

Re: LILYGO TTGO T-Display Incredibly Slow?

The Hershey fonts are vector fonts so they are much slower to draw using the pure python driver. Bitmapped fonts are much quicker in python and even faster with the C driver. The https://github.com/russhughes/st7789_mpy repo has a firmware.bin I compiled using the MicroPython 1.12 source including t...

I want the microPython REPL prompt to show on the 128x64 glcd. How can I do that?
