Hello Everyone!

I just finished a 3D printed coil winder machine. Here is a short video about it:

Very nice, good job! I've also been thinking about playing with the ESP32 for various purposes, and I 'd prefer working in C. Looks like that's what you do as well?

Will you link to the parts you used (which ESP32 board and drivers) on your Github page, as well as info on the programming environment?

Thanks!

I prefer to use C++, but ESP-IDF comes with C by default. Very easy to use either one by the way.

To get started on windows you will need a linux like environment and toolchain:
https://esp-idf.readthedocs.io/en/latest/get-started/windows-setup.html
more specificly this one:
https://dl.espressif.com/dl/esp32_win32_msys2_environment_and_toolchain-20180110.zip

Worth to read this one as you may want to update the actual ESP-IDF eventually:
https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf

A lot of YouTube videos covers ESP32 programming. I recomment Kolban's technical tutorials.

You can setup an Eclipse enviroment too.

I will upload everything for this project including the part list and gerber files, STL models and source codes for both the ESP32 and for the host application. I just need a little more time.
