Installation of Repetier-Firmware for Arduino 3d printer boards | Repetier Software Arduino-IDE First you need to get and install the development software. Don‘t worry, it is easy and you won‘t need special programming skills. Get your version of the Arduino IDE from . The software is available for WIndows, Linux and Mac. The IDE contains only the officially supported board driver. The next step is driver installation. To understand the IDE, you should now download the latest version of Repetier-Firmware. It is not necessary to clone the repository. Before you can compile and upload the firmware, you need to select the board and port. For a first successful upload, follow the next steps: Open the register tab named „Configuration.h“Search the line „#define MOTHERBOARD“ and change the number behind to match your board.Near the bottom you see a line „#define BAUDRATE 250000“. Congratulations! Common errors General configuration In general you will only need to update two configuration files. Short introduction into preprocessor directives

Visual Analyser details Detailed Features about: VA main form (version 8.x.x) (1) - Oscilloscope Dual channel Bandwith : depends from your soundcard (typical 20 Khz) up to 96 Khz (192 Khz sampling frequency) Resolution from 8 bit (S/N 46 dB) up to 24 bit (S/N >120 dB) Time division adjust according the sampling frequency and sample resolution Trigger (positive/negative slope) independent for both channels Complete software D/A of digital samples : the Nyquist theorem allows reconstructing exactly the input signal Utilities for quick frequency determination (hold left mouse button down and move mouse to get frequency/amplitude) Y-axis in Volt and percent full scale Auto calibration of scope (and spectrum) in volts (need an input signal of known amplitude) (2) - Spectrum Analyzer Dual channel Bandwidth : same as point (1) (oscilloscope function): is the half of the sampling frequency. (3) - Wave-form generator (4) - Frequency meter (5) - Volt meter (calibration needed) (6) - Filtering (7) - Memo windows

Building Your Own 3D Printer Home-built 3D printers are booming. In 2006 there were no such printers and 5 years later there are tens of thousands. There are currently hundreds of thousands of people wanting to start their own build waiting for the right moment to get started. The project that single-handily propelled home-built 3D printers out of nowhere is RepRap. It’s an open-source project meaning that all the information and design plans you’ll need are available free for all. Building a 3D printer yourself is a huge undertaking. Building a 3D printer is very hands-on and will require all your technical skills. These are the sections of this book: How a RepRap 3D printer worksParts of the printerA word on the most commonly used plasticsTools and skills requiredSoftware required to run a RepRap 3D printerBuyer’s guideLinks to build instructions This book is not a replacement for build instructions. Image 1 shows a fully assembled working home-built 3D printer. The frame gives the printer its stiffness. 9.

20 Amazing Creations You Can Make With 3D Printing If you can print in 2D, can you print in 3D? Well, the technology is already here. You can print out 3-dimensional objects based on a working template, and they aren’t just for show. They actually work! Manufacturers can provide you with a template where you can print a broken part of a machinery, let’s say, a screw, rather than order then wait for a replacement to come in. Alternatively, you can make a model replica of an expensive car, like a 1960 Aston Martin DB5 in a 1:3 scale then crash and burn it for entertainment, like how the makers of the James Bond flick, Skyfall did. (Image Source: The Register) 3D printing is made possible by fusing layers upon layers of materials made from durable plastics and metals based on a template, designed with a 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. With this technology, and a 3D printer, you can create designs or print 3D models of just about anything under the sun, provided you have the templates. 1. 2. 3D Printed Acoustic Guitar 3. 4. 5. 9. 11.

orG is a simple, open source 3D printing program - ReplicatorG This is the software that will drive your MakerBot Replicator, Thing-O-Matic, CupCake CNC, RepRap machine, or generic CNC machine. You can give it a GCode or STL file to process, and it takes it from there. It's cross platform, easily installed, and is based on the familiar Arduino / Processing environments. ReplicatorG is used by thousands of MakerBot Operators, and has printed tens of thousands of 3D objects and counting. ReplicatorG 0040 Released November 14, 2012 ReplicatorG 0037 Released June 22nd, 2012 (RepRap5D users, please use ReplicatorG 34 for 5D when using 5D) New Features: ReplicatorG 0034 Released March 13, 2012 ReplicatorG 0033 Released Feb. 27, 2012 New Features: ReplicatorG 0029 Released Dec 11, 2011 Added 'Reset Defaults' for Print-O-Matic settingsAdded Mk6 and Mk7 defaults for Print-O-MaticUpdated and simplified some number parsingUpdated Onboard Parameters dialogAdded data to start.gcode and wipe to help users modifyChanged handling of JFormattedTextField New features:

Utilizar el pc como osciloscopio Con este sencillo tutorial construiremos una entrada al ordenador para ser utilizado como osciloscopio. Transformaremos nuestro pc en un osciloscopio. El osciloscopio es quizás el instrumento de medida más deseado por todo aficionado/a a la electrónica. Más deseado, porque es un instrumento caro y no todo aficionado se puede permitir ese gasto. Sin embargo podemos convertir nuestro ordenador en un osciloscopio "casero" con prestaciones aceptables. Lo que vamos a hacer es utilizar la tarjeta de sonido de nuestro ordenador como entrada, y un software especial para mostrar las señales que apliquemos a esa entrada. Vamos por partes; En cuanto al hardware lo que necesitamos es: - 2 metros de cable rojo flexible, - 1 metro de cable negro flexible, - 2 conectores estéreo jack hembra de 6,3mm, - 1 conector macho jack estéreo de 6,3mm, - 2 pinzas de test rojas, - 1 pinza de test negra, - 2 resistencias de 100K ohmios y - 2 trimmers de 20K. El esquema sería este.

Proyecto Clone Wars Acerca de RepRap | Comunidad RepRap | Comunidad Clone Wars Introducción Objetivo: "imprimir" impresoras 3D, aprender a construirlas, ayudar a otros e intercambiar información y experiencias. ¡Quiero construir mi impresora 3D! Te recomendamos que montes la Prusa Iteración 3 o la Prusa iteración 3 single frame, ambas son semejantes, la diferencia es que el marco de la Single Frame es de metracrilato o de aluminio y la de la Prusa i3 es de madera. ¿Qué presupuesto necesito?. Puedes empezar ojeando la wiki, para hacerte una idea de los pasos a seguir, y leyendo más en profundidad la documentación concreta del modelo de impresora que hayas escogido. ¿Dónde compro el resto del material? Hemos apuntado en la wiki un listado de las tiendas. ¡Estoy convencido! ¡Estupendo! Lista de correo Antes de inscribirte en la lista de correo, por favor lee las normas de conducta. Para evitar tráfico y esperas innecesarias, documéntate bien y lee el FAQ antes de preguntar. Canal de IRC Encargo de Piezas 3D

Open Book on "Low-cost 3D Printing for Science, Education and Sustainable Development" Low-cost, three-dimensional (3D) desktop printing, although still in its infancy, is rapidly maturing, with seemingly unlimited potential. The hope is that this cutting-edge 3D technology will open new dimensions to science and education, and will make a marked impact in developing countries. This book gives a reasonable, first overview of current research on 3D printing.
