Re: Any Arduino wizards out there? / FSR bed leveling

Heyo After a chat with the awesome people of sparkfun, we had our doubts about the longevity of the force sensitive resistors. Luckily, we've begun work on a super elegant solution. We're replacing the bed fingers (little tabs that hold down the corners of the bed) with metal bits of a known thickne...

Re: AO-10x x-carriage mod

Here's an in progress potential Bam style quick fit carriage. I have been wanting to incorporate some LED lights that I bought and a fan duct to the upgrade. Lastly, the self tightening mechanism is on the back portion though not all the components are shown... Also none of these ideas are original...

Re: ht17-275 8 lead stepper motor wiring help

I know how to wire the 4 wire stepper motors. I was just wondering if anybody knows if i should wire the 8 wire stepper motors either bipolar series or bipolar parallel according to the wiring pattern? Wiring them in series will give you more torque at low speeds, which will lead to better precisio...

Re: Any Arduino wizards out there? / FSR bed leveling

Very interesting looking! Unfortunatly, the arduino side is where I'm weakest so I won't be of much help. Hopefully someone can help you get it working though! Thanks man! It's going to be pretty sweet, hopefully something we can retrofit to a full size TAZ 8-) Super easy way of accomplishing this ...

Any Arduino wizards out there? / FSR bed leveling

Heyo! I'm working on something pretty awesome that I think you guys will get a kick out of. As you may know, we're hard at work on a new printer codenamed Azalea (http://devel.lulzbot.com/Easy_TAZ_Mini/Azalea); the goal is to produce TAZ quality parts with as little calibration and fiddling as possi...

Re: Casting in metal from printed parts!

When do you think we will see an all metal hotend from Lulzbot? I was considering getting a higher temp nozzle then my Buda 1.1 in the next few months. We're quite a lot closer to the all metal hotend, we're currently working with the awesome folks at reprapdiscount on a custom tailored Hexagon hot...

Re: 24v power supply + 12v heater?

I had already purchased a similar sized heater, but it requests 12v 20a.. as compared to the 24v 10a. Heyo! I wouldn't run the heater at more than the rated voltage, but this is pretty easy to set in the firmware. Assuming you're using Marlin, you can set the voltage that's sent to the bed by chang...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Also, We're currently working with force sensitive resistors embedded in the bed corners as an alternative to using a deployable probe. The advantage is that the 'probing' of the bed is actually done by the nozzle, so you don't have to worry about x, y, or z offset errors skewing the compensation. I...
