Cable bot with Ardupilot

Hello,

Is there anybody that tries (or succeed) to implements a cable bot with Ardupilot?

Is there a specific reason why you need Ardupilot?

Because I’ve seen something similar based on a 3D printer… And since a robot like this depends more on inverse kinematic than stabilisation etc I would try with a 3D printer firmware like Marlin…

Thanks for your reply.

In fact I’m thinking if it is possible and efficient to inverse the problematic of cable bots.

Use stabilisation, GPS position, … To move a cable bot

To be honest I still don’t get why you need ardupilot…

You achieve a stable position if there is no play in the cables…
You’re restricted to a specific area within a local coordinate system (every 3d printer works with a local coordinate system, that’s basically G-Code…), and if you really need the global coordinates I’m pretty sure that it should be fairly easy to convert them…

So I think everything you need already has been done, but not in ardupilot…

Every 3D printer gets its position to go to as a x, y, z coordinate, the printer than handles the inverse kinematic to reach this point

Thanks…

I don’t “need” Ardupilot… I just would like to know if it’s possible and/or if there is an interrest to do so.

I think you reply my question!
