You might also want to look at Resources . Perhaps some or all of that page should be merged into this page. (Discuss) This page attempts to make some sense, in general, of how all the pieces fit together to create a RepRap. However, if you want to skip all this stuff and get straight to getting your hands dirty then your best bet is to take a look at The incomplete RepRap beginner's guide and the build instructions category. In addition to those guides, you may also want to take a look at the links under the Models section below. RepRap Component Structure. That being said, to get a higher-level overview, we must start with discussing the different models of RepRaps, then go on to the four main components of a RepRap: The software toolchain. Models These days there are a growing number of many great and detailed build instructions for RepRaps! If you're steampunk or just like to get away without commercial kits, there are also RepStraps.

Make a solar-powered 24 hour greenhouse This cool project for a solar-powered 24 hour greenhouse comes from Instructables user and TreeHugger favorite, Joshua Zimmerman. Zimmerman has provided us with some great solar-powered projects before and you can check out even more at his site If you have some experience with DIY gadgets, you should be able to easily tackle this 24 hour greenhouse, which uses a solar panel to generate energy for providing a little extra light for house plants during the night. Included is also a 10-minute super easy version that uses a 2-liter plastic bottle and an old LED garden light that even beginners could handle. Zimmerman says: "I live in Wisconsin, which is usually rather nice.

using a touch screen from a phone So let me se if i get this right. i apply 5V and ground to two of the 4 wires and the others are hooked up to analog inputs on the Arduino board an treated just like any other variable resistor ? each giving me a number for the X and Y position on the screen ? You have to apply the 5V across one pair then read the analogue value from one of the wires in the other pair, then apply the 5V to the other pair and read the analogue voltage from one of the wires in the first pair. It is that easy, though in a commercial environment you would have to calibrate the x and y values so top left and bottom right etc are accurate, also to prevent build up from electrolysis you would reverse the voltage on the pairs, you would debounce the touches, you would have a sleep mode with touch detection, some filtering of the values is desireable and if you are using it as an input device to replace a mouse, you need to be able to detect a "click". None of this is necessary in simple applications, though. Mike

aluminum mendel90 With our house move behind us (thanks to my parents who came up last week to help out), I now have internet at our new house along with a small workshop area in my basement. We're still getting things situated and making some improvements to the house but I've been able to sneak in a few hours of work (albeit late at night) on my own personal projects. With the upcoming 3D Printing Camp WI this weekend, I have been focussing on getting my Prusa tuned up and making further progress on my other printers for the event. I eventually want to build my own design for a printer or mill or laser cutter, but I feel I just don't understand enough about these machines and the ins and outs of printing in order to create a smart design (as of yet). This means I need to build a few different ones to be able to analyze the intricate workings and figure out what it needs to be. With the sheets full of threaded holes and cleaned up from all the tapping fluid, I set about mocking up the frame.

Learn how 3d printing metal works - Top 3 ways! There’s been a lot of buzz lately about 3D printing metals like steel and bronze – but how exactly does it work? 3D printing with metal has a plethora of applications in industries like jewelry, medical, dental, and manufacturing. Although most of these applications are focused on corporate use cases, there are companies working on making it possible for consumers to 3D print with metal on their desktop printers. Here’s how the technology behind 3D printing metal works: Top 3 Methods For 3D Printing Metal 1. Electronic-Lab in a Box First question: What I really need everytime? soldering Iron and holder lab-power supply Multimeter, some wires and soldering tin cleaning sponge and flux fume-extractor (i don't have one but always wanted to build one) So I begin with the heavy thing, the power-supply put it in the middle and arranged everything around it in mind and constructed everything in sketchup.
