Comprehensive List of TAZ Modifications

Postby piercet » Fri Jul 10, 2015 12:14 am

Here is an attempt to catelogue the various TAZ upgrades and modifications that currently exist. I have elected to leave Taz 1 and 2 specific modifications off the list as they are not compatable with 3 and Up machines for the most part. If you have a Taz 1 or 2 please consider upgrading it to 3 specifications at least.

If I missed your project, or you would like to see something added to the list, please feel free to post it in this thread and I'll add it to the list.

Awesome, thanks for this list. :)


Unfortunately, some of the projects are using proprietary licenses. I don't see licenses for all projects, but some are definitely out. Specifically, these have proprietary licenses:

----
Direct E3DV6 mount By: Wolfie
Parts are under a proprietary license.
----
SD Card Holder By: pablopeza
----
Dial Indicator mount By: Wolfie
----
TAZ hexagon Hotend 40mm Fan Mount By: tmorris9
----


Wolfie has violated our licensing terms in the past, by taking our freely released files and put them under a non-free license. I didn't look to see if that was done in the above objects too.

Perhaps the non-free items could be removed from the list or put on another thread (preferably in another forum).

Thanks!

-Jeff

I didn't even look at licensing when i was putting that list together. I have removed the objectionable parts from the list since it is your forum and I want to comply with the forum rules.

I am kind of torn on removing a couple of those though. Take the SD card for example. It is a proprietary license, but at the same time it wasn't a part generated from a Lulzbot produced file. The license it was under would allow a given forum user to print and use that part without restriction or cost. They just couldn't modify or sell them, which definitly doesn't make it open source, but it is still a part made to fit a TAZ that someone on the forum might have a need for. The main reason I put this list together was to get a comprehensive overview of what types of parts out there already exist, so I know where and where not to focus my development efforts. By removing those non open source parts from the list someone might spend time remaking a similar part when they could have been working on something else. I've removed it anyways to conform to the forum rules, but I'm kind of ambivalent about doing so.

Actually, there are no forum rules saying NC can't be posted. Copyright law does have say in the copyright violations. Not all of the NC posts were also copyright violations, just some of them.

I have yet to ever take down a post in around 20 years of admining various forums, lists, websites, streams, & whatnot (excepting blatant spam). You can certainly keep up the list in any form, but I definitely appreciate the non-free stuff getting yanked. By mixing in with free and open, people can unknowinlgy use proprietary code when they presume it is free. People deliberately mix in non-free components to undermine communities as well. It is something we need to stand on guard to prevent.

I read this as "by having a list of only open source parts, people that don't find an open source part will spend time creating one". This is a good thing. :)

Thanks for the list and all the hacking! :)

Heads up, I tried a few links out, and the first one for the x axis open rail links to a thread about duct fan mounting. I just searched the forum for x axis open rail project and found the proper thread. But maybe update the link?

Thanks, and great work putting this togethr, there are a number of these I will implement.
