I ask she said it was OK for me to { Post } As she was going to use what I 3D Printed for a Molding part. Attached are the 3 Pieces of the Light Saber Shelf Molding Part. The STL files are a fraction of the actual size, I expanded to the Max my 3D Printer would print for this customer. Shelf.jpg Hav...

Re: What's everyone working on

I am working on a 3 piece light saber shelf. My neighbor approached me and ask if I could design a light saber shelf that she could use as a mold. She will use the mold to be able to create many clear shelves, being clear she can then add glitter, sparkles, beads, stars or many other decorations. As...

I designed a have been running a filament run-out sensor about 2 years ago. http://www.3dprintingforum.us/viewtopic.php?p=11290#p11290 I designed a small housing to allow for a blade switch that can to tripped by inserting the filament. In pins changed the filament run-out sensor pin to a unused end...

Re: 1st 3D Printer: Prusa i3 MK3s vs Dremel 3D45

Never had a Dremel!

Have two Prusa's Clones that I like very much, though they do not build them any more so cannot send you in that direction...
I would point you in the direction of the Prusa I3 MK3s though.

Re: What's everyone working on

I have received parts to allow me to drive two A4988 driver modules with my Arduino Mega2560. My MPCNC uses X and E0 for the Dual X axis stepper motors and Y and E1 for the Dual Y axis stepper motors. This hopefully will allow me to upgrade my MPCNC to have a dual X and dual Y axis A4988 driver modu...

Re: Arduino Mega & A4988 Driver Module

The parts have arrived and will be test this on My MPCNC backup controller. I will be posting my results. The reason behind this is to get the E0, E1 back to allow me to 3D Print on this large MPCNC machine. I have figured out how to install a hotbed and even level the bed on the MPCNC for 3D Printi...

Re: Arduino Mega & A4988 Driver Module

I have ordered the parts to test adding a dual X&Y-Axis driver module that can be plugged into my Ramps 1.6 controller board.

Arduino Mega & A4988 Driver Module

Both my 3D Printers run with a dual Z in parallel now for 3 years with no problems. Do not like the ideal of twice the current though, if I designed the circuit would had wired them in series. I have been thinking about my MPCNC it used X & E0 for X and Y & E1 for Y to drive stepper motors. I want t...

Re: Noob with Cura - HELP

Your timing is OK, It has been getting crazier for everyone for finding time for all that has to be done.

This leaves us very little time for doing these things we want to do.

Uninterruptible power supply

I have two working APC Smart-UPS 2200 uninterruptible power supply backup in case of a blackout. These are used units that came from a defunct fast food restaurant, an were given to me free of charge. After checking them out I found one had major electronic problems and it ended up in a circular fil...
