Manual control of a stepper motor

Hi - I don’t know if this can be done but I would like a stepper motor to have some kind of manual control.
for instance a lever (or a pot) starting at “position 1” is turned clockwise to “position 2” the stepper motor will rotate to follow the relative speed AND direction of the movement. Then move in the opposite direction if turned from position 2 back to position 1.
Thanks in advance.

Hi John,

Here is a good tutorial to get you started. This can be used to control the speed and direction of a stepper motor by using a potentiometer. I would start here, and then add on the functionality to stop when its reached a relative position.

I hope that helps! Remember to share your finished project with us here on the forum!
