I'm driving a large stepper motor via a GeckoBoard G213V and arduino UNO and I have that mostly working fine. However, I'd like to 'release' the stepper so it can swing freely.
There's two reasons I want to do this:
1) (Most important) I want the rotated object to naturally swing back to the 0 position thanks to gravity. 2) The motor gets hot - I'd rather not juice it when it should just be sat at 0.
Anybody know how I can do this? I'm using the AccelStepper library so a solution compatible with that would be ideal.
