Yes the LCD library has a screensaver built in. There is a command to disable it so look through the setup code.
I never found it distracting.

I Downloaded your Rotary Table 10 program but get an Error message when Verifying sketch, Error:
Temp1_RotaryTable10.zip\RotaryTable10\RotaryTable10.ino:1:23: fatal error: BoolField.h: No such file or directory
exit status 1
Please read post #4 which explains why you are getting that error. Review the first post again as it tells you what to do. Also, when you get it going, be sure to modify the code as per the later bug fix on GoDivide()Rod,
I get the same thing, I clicked the Rotarytable10.ino . Doesn't load the library BoolField.h Any ideas?
I did read post#4 previously, which why I knew that it didn't load the library. I had to manually load the library into the java folder. On previous Arduino programs that I have used it loaded the libraries automatically. Your program did load the Eprom library automatically, so I am confused why it didn't load the rest of the libraries. Now when I verify the code I get;Please read post #4 which explains why you are getting that error. Review the first post again as it tells you what to do.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad its working for you. If you were going to build it into a dedicated hardware box, I would not waste a 32 bit CPU on it. Please give me your feedback on your linear application as I have not seen anybody use it that way.I wish to thank you for this. I had been looking at creating something like this for my milling machine X axis.. Now I don't.
I've got it to compile and was surprised it actually compiled on a Arduino Pro board. 16mhz, using 98% of memory. I will however end up using possibly my Tau 32bit board instead. Got this from a kickstarter and it should be plenty fast enough to run this.
OK, found it ( took awhile )
Find where you keep your libraries and open the LCD folder, in it open the file LCD.cpp in notepad. Change the backlight pin from 3 to 10, save and close. That should be all you need to get the Sainsmart working with the Freetronics library.

Hi, I've been a bit busy for the past few days, but I tried the new script and the division seems to work perfectly now. I tried divisions 3, 21, 37, 61 and 360. All holes lined up.
I'll do some more testing later and I will write down the results but for now it seems that we have
I don't appreciate multiple requests via PM and on multiple threads. Your PM was devoid of manners. There is only 4 wires required to drive a stepper motor driver from an Arduino, 2 of them are +5v and -5v. If you can't work it out, you should not be attempting this project.#rodw
Can you please give us the wiring diagram.
I am new to the site so please excuse my noobness. First off, thank you for posting the code and making this project available to all. I am having an issue with getting the DIV to work correctly. When I select the number of divisions and press direction, the motor makes twelve full revolutions and stops. I am able to run CONT by holding the direction button down which stops when I release the button. I feel like I am close, but I must have a setting wrong somewhere. I am using a NEMA 34 motor with Arduino UNO with a SainSmart LCD shield, SainSmart Micro Stepper Driver with Pulse per rev is set at 5000 (I have tried all settings, and this seemed to sound the best) and I have tried all amp settings from 1 to 4.5 without any noticeable differences. I tried to change the settings on the LCD in setup to reflect the pins I used on the Arduino (2 and 3) where the DIR will change to 3, but the Steps revert back to 1 even when I change it and choose Save =Yes. Thank you for any help you can offer.
Shehan, just like learning to use a lathe or mill, you take 'baby step' with Arduino. Look for a tutorial on using the UNO with the LCD display and keyboard. This will initiate your understanding of the wire connections between the UNO and any of the many devices that can be connected. Have you done the very first Arduino sketch that blinks a LED on the UNO board? Some copies (of the UNO) do not have that LED installed. The next sketch is the same, but with an external LED and resistor. This is a needed 'stepping stone' to understand what Arduino is about and the coding that the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) provides to enable non computer science, electrical engineers the ability to use microcontrollers.Can you tell me about pin connections.
