ADDING a 3-Wire Laser to a CR-10S 3D Printer : 18 Steps (with Pictures) - Instructables. The 5V PWM is the tricky bit.

ADDING a 3-Wire Laser to a CR-10S 3D Printer : 18 Steps (with Pictures) - Instructables

Find this MOSFET in the pic above. Grab your multi-meter and test this pin CAREFULLY. On the CR10 screen, set your PART FAN to 0, 128, and 255. Your multimeter should show voltages of 0, 2.5V, and 5V respectively. Unplug printer from the wall. Carefully solder your PWM/TTL wire there. That pin on the left is the Gate pin for the MOSFET. I put a bit of extra solder on the MOSFET’s pin, then tinned the wire w/ some solder, then melted the two together…wire in left hand, soldering iron in right.

Keep in mind: when the PART FAN turns on, so will the laser. SIDE NOTE: How does LightBurn control the laser's PWM natively? NinjaFlex material is the leading flexible filament in the 3D printing industry. Flex filaments — HackSpace magazine. Printing flexible filament provides certain challenges.

Flex filaments — HackSpace magazine

The inherent stretchiness of the material makes them less suitable for Bowden tube extruders compared to direct drive. You can get them to work with Bowden machines, but particularly as you go down the Shore hardness scale, you’ll have to be very careful with your settings. Flex filaments are also very prone to stringing, and you may find that this is something that you just have to live with, and not something that you can solve with slicer settings. As the prints are flexible, any thin parts are prone to flexing as you try to print on top of them, so taller structures have to be stiff enough to stay still when printing. Keeping the speed slow can help with this, but you may find that certain designs that are printable with stiffer plastics just don’t work with flex. Depending on the infill percentage and the hardness, flex filaments can be easy to bend, or fairly stiff Hardness is measured on the Shore hardness scale.

🖍 Making PCB with 3D Printer and permanent marker. There are a lot of ways to create your own PCB’s at home.

Making PCB with 3D Printer and permanent marker

I have used the toner transfer method for a while, but it’s a pain to use the ironing iron and then dissolve the paper and so on. Some of the methods are: – Toner transfer and etching – Isolation routing with CNC – Draw with a permanent marker directly on to the copper clad and etch – UV light, photoresist PCB copper clad, transparency and etching I have always wanted to try a CNC to mill a PCB (isolation Routing).

How to Smooth Your PLA Prints to a Mirror Finish - Step-by-Step

Or perhaps you just want rid of those layer lines to make your print look more 'factory finished'? For any 3D printing materials that can't be acetone smoothed, this quick-guide is for you. This is one of our favorite techniques when smoothing PLA prints: how to polish PLA 3D prints to a shine you won't believe was ever 3D printed. And we're really talking professional grade smoothing. Make 3d Printed Topo Maps of Anywhere : 7 Steps (with Pictures) - Instructables. So hopefully by this point you have a downloaded and un-zipped GeoTIFF file.

Some of you may recognize that a TIFF file is a standard raster image file format. So it should come as no surprise that you can actually open this file with Photoshop or a similar program and look at it. It is a greyscale image where the darker areas represent lower elevations and the lighter areas represent higher points. It is possible to run this image through one of myriad programs which convert greyscale pictures to 3d models. The OpenRC F1 Build Guide - Daniel Norée. This is the build guide for the OpenR/C Formula 1 car.

The OpenRC F1 Build Guide - Daniel Norée

It´s the third generation 3D printed OpenR/C car and this time around focus is on simplicity! You can print everything in PLA except the tires which are done in in a soft TPE such as NinjaFlex! Of course you can print it in any material you like but for those that want to print a car but only have PLA at hand, this is the project for you! This guide explains how to assemble the OpenRC F1 car.

30 Great 3D Printing Projects for Spring 2020. Anet A8 $4 Bed Leveling by VegasGuy. – OE2BLT ⨳ 40-20-10m EFHW Coil 3D Model. I was building multiband end fed antenna for 40-20-10m as per instructions on the Nonstop Systems web page Multiband End Fed by Frank N4SPP. I needed to build the loading coil, but the problem was that all materials were too heavy, they were putting excentric load on the fibre glass rod and I did not like the way how the antenna wire was connecting to the coil.

So I have created a 3D model for printing that has following benefits: it has a thread which helps winding the wire and which separates the turns from shorting, it has a center hole which exactly fits my fibreglass mast so that I do not have to secure it in any other way, the wire terminals are standard Wago 221 wire clamps.

Cable-Driven Robots May Lift European Industry - Futuris. Analog 3D printer - GIF - Modular DIY CNC Machine: 11 Steps. Since I live in an apartment and didn't have many tools when starting this project, I chose components based on their availability off the shelf or through online vendors. The project could probably be cheaper by cutting the extrusions yourself, using different suppliers, or different material completely, but I found this to be the easiest option. Frame: The aluminum extrusions all come from, which provides services for cutting and tapping of all extrusions. This means a chop saw for cutting metal isn't necessary since everything is already ordered to length. The T-slot extrusions are also fairly standard which means the hardware for them is easy to find and not proprietary to one single vendor.

Carriages and Drivetrain: The X and Y axes move using carriages which reduce friction and make it easy for attaching the extrusions, motors, and other electronics. For the Z-axis, I found it easiest to just design a carriage that would slide using the T-slots in the extrusions. 3D Printer News & 3D Printing News. Apr 4, 2017 | By Benedict Barcelona’s IAAC (Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia) has teamed with Basque technology company Tecnalia to develop On Site Robotics, a 3D printing construction project in which sustainable, low-cost buildings can be built with 100% natural materials.

The On Site Robotics 3D Printing System in action The city of Barcelona is populated with some of the most unusual and offbeat architecture in all of Europe. Home to Gaudi’s unfinished Sagrada Família, Jean Nouvel’s Torre Agbar, and a wild mix of Catalan Art Nouveau and contemporary buildings, the coastal city is a joy to explore and behold. Luckily, Catalonians are showing no signs of abandoning their love for innovative and unusual architecture, and this year’s Construmat construction fair will showcase a brand new additive manufacturing construction project from Barcelona’s IAAC and its Bilbao-based technology partner, Tecnalia.

EWaste 60$ 3DPrinter: 11 Steps (with Pictures) Although the downloaded Marlin firmware already has a standard calibration for the axis resolution, you will have to go through this step if you want a precise printer. Here you will tell the firmware the steps per millimeter that your machine actually needs. This value depends on the steps per revolution of your motor and on the size of the thread in the driving rod of your axes. By doing that we make sure that the movement of the machine actually corresponds to the distances in the g-code. Apollo-NG - picoPrint 3D Printer.
