Description (Summer 2020)

The current goals of the project include: designing and implementing a control system to update the current outdated control system. The new control system will provide a user-friendly GUI to run on a Windows(7+) Operating System. This GUI will send commands to an Arduino-based hardware interface to control various hardware devices. ==== Important Links ==== —- ^Link^Description^ | | Current Github Repo | | | Published Github Project Site | —- ==== Files ==== ^File^Description^ |micromachining_manual_20101206.pdf | MICROMACHINING MANUAL_20101206 | |micromachining_experimental_setup_connections.pdf | MICROMACHINING EXPERIMENTAL SETUP CONNECTIONS | —- ==== Progress / Updates ==== <box round green left 60%> This section is meant to describe how the control system is to be implemented and provide a section to document updates. </box>
