Encoder question for a digitizing arm
- Hello. I was wondering if anyone has planes for a digitizing arm. I
would like to do a DIY and have thoughts about how to make the arm but
am getting stuck with the encoders. I was thinking of getting some
encoder disk like these on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?
3AIT&rd=1 and was thinking of using a laser mouse to read the movement
but have no idea on how to get the data into the pc. Was hoping
someone could give me some pointers.
