I am endeavoring to set up my CNC router to become a closed system polishing machine for glass faces of watches. The system is to have a full touch screen, with my own GUI.
I want to run a Raspberry Pi, which will boot straight into my GUI, and will drive my motors.
I want to use an Arduino to run my 3 stepper motors, and to control a single DC motor.
I am wanting to know what parts I'll need.
What I have:
Raspberry Pi A+
3 Nema17 motors and a single dc motor, which have all be stripped off a CNC router. The point of this project is to design a system which boots straight into a GUI, so any Tom Dick and Harry can use it.
(It will lead to a proto type polishing machine I'd like to one day manufacture).
