Recursive Drawing Machine: x-axis test

I’ve started working on a new sculpture that is a bit of a departure from many of my past projects. It’s  an interactive, recursive drawing machine.  I’ll post more about the details as the piece comes to life, but the core of it is the drawing machine its self.  I’ve made some great progress on the core mechatronics.  I’ve got the first axis (the X-axis) of the machine fabricated and I’ve got the stepper motor under computer control. In this video you can see the first test of x-axis.  A boring but important step to be sure that I’ve got the code, controller, motor and linear bearing all playing nicely together.
