I'm thinking of using a 3pi for an upcoming project, but I'm not at all a programmer. I don't want to bite off more than I can chew, so I'm hoping to get some feedback from people who would know if my plans are unrealistic.
I have to build several paper shooters - these are an effect for a show in which a 'storm' of paper happens over the stage. These sorts of things come up pretty frequently, and I'm tired of doing a custom unit for every effect. So I thought that now might be a good time to invest in something that can be reused and reprogrammed (and then rented out to other theatres in the future)
The motors would need to start and stop on command (wirelessly would be great, but at this point a physical wire is acceptable), the speed would need to be adjusted during the trial phase (not during the show), and the speed up and slow down should also be able to be tuned.
It's the programming part that I'm pretty unsure of - I know that debugging can be a huge part of a project like this, and I have very little experience with it.
Thanks in advance!
