I had to put my AR3 build on pause for several months and I'm ready to come back to it after seeing the magnificent Boston Dynamics robots dance ! I mean come on we have to have AR3 shake and clap it's fingers in cadence at least !
I left my project with the build completed but not able to calibrate.
One of the joint is stiff (J1), one of the joint only moves in 1 direction (J3) - and I have to troubleshoot these.
But my biggest issue is that the encoders and limit switches do not seem to work. I was wondering if there is an easy way to display in the interface the value/status of the limit switches and the encoders. That would help me tremendously (or if you have to debug in the Arduino directly)
Thanks in advance for your help
The opposite in fact, the calibration process (I run only one axis at the time after I jog to roughly the center of the range) stops before hitting the switch. I get the message "calibration successful" but then I have only a very limited range of motion
Starting with your questions on the limit switches, what behavior are you noting when trying to calibrate? Are the axis not stopping when the switches are reached?
