Arduino chosen for next stage of RepRap development
- Direct USB connection to the host computer, hence no significant communications delays
- Easy-to-use platform-independent software development environment
- More memory
We shall do a release of the entire RepRap system (hardware, firmware, and software) shortly that will be a stable platform from which people can take the current PIC microcontrollers forward if they wish.
We will then do a subsequent release with identical host software, but with the Arduino electronics and firmware. This will form the basis of our next set of developments.
