The Beagle Bites Back

Currently, half of the programming team is working in collaboration with the electronics team in order to getting the stepper motor working with our program. We have run into several problems, but now we have narrowed it down the possible causes for glitches and are working on fixing it. One major change that we have decided to make is that we are now using an Arduino board instead of a Beaglebone. Recently, the Beaglebone has been temperamental about working, so we think this switch will help us complete our goals much faster. The rest of the team is working on how process the code to process what the consumer wants to make, and turn that into the actual printed object.
