Use at your own risk!!!
I'm trying to control Makergear M2 using matlab for material science specific applications. In order for the fiber in our paste to align, we need to print in a specific path. I wonder if we can use matlab to send Gcode commands to makergear via serial communication and control the printing, then we can integrate other parts of our system better.
Matlab can control an arduino, sending strings via serial communication. This matlab code on an ordinary arduino would make the arduino receive string G28.
Code: Select all
clear all clc arduino=serial('COM3','BaudRate',9600); % create serial communication object on port COM4 fopen(arduino); % initiate arduino communication fprintf(arduino,'%s','G28'); pause(5); fclose(arduino); % end communication with arduino
Thanks in advance!
