That was great fun to build. The joining technique of the gondola is tremendously innovative and a showpiece for good printable constructions.
As software I use a slightly modified version of MDraw: https://github.com/Makeblock-official/mDrawBot
Simply make the following adjustment in the spider.ino from https://github.com/Makeblock-official/mDrawBot/tree/master/firmwares/spider
/ **** Mapping xy position to steps ** /
define STEPS_PER_CIRCLE 3200.0f
define WIDTH 790 // width between stepper axis
define HANGPOS 470 // init the sunblind position
define DIAMETER 28.5 // the diameter of stepper wheel fits exactly now !!!
define STEPS_PER_MM (STEPS_PER_CIRCLE / PI / DIAMETER)
void prepareMove ()
Now it is also usable with Arduino Uno and low cost "TB6560 CNC Router" stages. And very user-friendly, even usable by children.
