I think it's cool, especially since I would not
have expected (well until Inline::C) that Perl would
be fast enough to run a welding robot. Could
you please explain this aspect of your project?
I am interested because I know some people who build
what could be called 3D printers.. solid objects are
built by laying down a thin layer of fine powder and
fusing with a laser, then laying down another layer.
Custom Windows software is used, and it might be
interesting if we could automate all this with
standardized, network-aware software.
I am interested to know if you use Perl in the modelling
phase, in the building of a command list, or in realtime
control, and what kind of limitations you have seen.
Do you use any straight C (Inline or other driver software)
or is it pure Perl? What does Perl enable you to do?
Is quicker prototyping/testing better? Have you been
able to enhance the system by including other Perl
The bass thing is neat. Thanks for the info.
