Hello everyone !
I've been looking for something like what I want to do but so far I've only seen projects with only partial similitude, so I thought maybe the forum will have answer or ideas !
I want to build a XY gantry to move a camera on a "grid" and take pictures of whatever will be put underneath said camera. So the idea is : move to XY coordinates, take picture, move to new XY coordinates, take picture etc etc... you get the idea.
My questions are :
Is there a project like mine that I don't know of and that you might have heard about ?
If I have to start from scratch (gantry + stepper motors) would a RPI + Protoneer RPI CNC do the trick ?
Can the raspberry handle the CNC hat and the camera at the same time ? Or should I use something on top of the RPI and CNC hat ?
My biggest worry is, will I be able to create a script to move the camera on a grid (translate my XY coordinates into gcode ?) and take pictures ?
Also can I plug the RPI CNC hat and the camera at the same time ?
I'll appreciate any inputs you can give me
