7/28/2014 -Fixed bug where no data where accepted if the number of motors where less that 6 -Changed the use of switch on KLM connector, to ignore new position data and slowly park the platform in rest position (start position). -Minor performance changes.
This version is stable now. Let me know if you experience any issues. You feedback is important!
What do you mean? In this firmware I changed the function of kill switch to ignore new position data from the PC, and slowly place the motors back in park position.
If you like to "kill" the motor's motion otherwise you can use the "Enable" function of the VFD inverters, and daisy chain all of them in a single "stop" button. All VFD inverters have this ability. Even the servomotors I'm testing these days have a separate "Enable" input to disable the motor: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CMIPu3t7d0#t=39
Check the settings in the LCD menu, maybe you reconfigured something there. I'll try to make short videos about the LCD menu settings, as some of them might be difficult to understand
Your VFD inverter does have "kill" motors function... Actually has two inputs for that. One to Disable the motors and one to Reset them to start again. Its called "External Fault", and "Fault Reset" ... See pages 45, 90 and 94 on the manual for details about the wiring and how to enable the fucntions.

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Theuns: Very nice design.I'm also busy with mine and changing it also to Linear Actuators with 220v Servo motors.I'm waiting for my new controllers from Thanos. If I may ask Do you have any Sketchup files of your design and willing to share it I Thanks Theuns

atayeu: Hey everyone! I'm reading up and gathering all of the intel I can find for my first motion platform. this is by far best information for creating one.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
