Fabrication Kickoff meeting with Zac:
Studying the possibility to link Arduino Extrusion control with Robot motion though a common serial channel communication protocol Several outputs we have found a more efficient approach.
Instead of using USB to send GCODE/RAPID serial protocol, by using 24 V digital output signals from the robot in specific pulses Arduino will be able to process commands for Extruder control.
