  8. Protomaker Black Sprint Original 3D Printe

    Uses this for a control board

    Sanguinololu is a low-cost all-in-one electronics solution for Reprap and other CNC devices. It features an onboard Sanguino clone using the ATmega644P though a 644, 1284 or 1284P is easily dropped in.

    Its four axes are powered by Pololu pin compatible stepper drivers. The board is designed to be flexible in its power source, working with a 12V/5V ATX power supply or any 7V-35V power source via the on-board voltage regulator.

  9. The controller board

    Sanguinololu is highly integrated with all the functions that a 3D printer needs. It is of high capacity-price ratio and support Reprap style printer and other CNC devices (Computer numerical control devices).

    The 4 stepper drivers are completely compatible with A4988 and DRV8825. Sanguinololu adapts developer friendly expansion port supporting I2C,SPI,UART,as well as ADC pins. All 14 expansion pins are reserved to be GPIO as well. Power supply for sanguinololu is also flexible; users can choose ATX-4 power input or the 2pin connector to supply.

  11. Protomaker 3D Printer Temperatures OK

    I thought the Temperatures make have been incorrect because a no-contact infrared device was giving incorrect readings, but I tested using a Vichy VC99 Multimeter and got good results..

    The surface of the Hot End may be more silver than I think and this may be causing the incorrect temperature readings but it shows that some care needs to be taken

    The Vichy VC99 Multimeter appears to be displaying 5°C less than the actual temperature. I tested it using the temperature of boiling water at normal atmospheric pressure

    I may have got this one wrong, pressing the wrong button or releasing the temperature trigger too soon

  14. Protomaker 3D Printer Threaded Rod less wobble

    Not fully tested but seems better, more to be done later

    IMPORTANT Opps!!!

    I wasn’t thinking straight, taken out the anti-backlash system to reduce wobble seems to help reduce the wobble BUT the anti-backlash is needed when first homing.

    During homing the z axis moves down trips the z end-stop goes back up a short distance and comes back down, a bit slower, to doubled check the zero position, this means the Z axis does needed to go backwards and forwards and that the anti-backlash system is required to reduce errors here.

    The whole build could be impacted by removing the anti-backlash system so I do not recommend doing this.

    These are just ideas I have not recommendations, so don’t copy unless you think they will work for you and triple test everything.

  20. 3D Printer woes. PLA Warping, NOT layering. Hot end jamming & leaking..

    The layers are not adhered to each other BIG TIME layer separation even with other settings and can be easily separated..

    Sometimes this filament, (3mm PLA), will snap, break for no reason.

    It’s OK when I leave it in the feeder but it is snapped when I return, even while not using it, not printing, etc..

    Then because of the jamming in the Hot End I have to remove all the filament out the Bowden Tube and reload it all again.

    3D Printer 24V Heat bed SSR test success

    Using RAMPs 1.4, with a 12864 LCD display, control a 24 Volt 300 Watt heat pad.

    The 24 Volt 300 Watt heat pad is controlled on and off via the Solid State Relay, SSR.

    The Solid State Relay is controlled via the RAMPS 1.4 which is powered via a 24 Volt to 12 Volt car voltage step down device. A 24 Volt 500 Watt Power supply unit powers the 24 Volt 300 Watt heat pad via the Solid State Relay which is controlled via the RAMPS at 12 Volts.

    So the RAMPS 1.4 is powered at 12 Volts via 12 Volts from the car voltage step down device which gets its 24 Volts input from the same 24 Volt 500 Watt Power supply as the one that also powers the 24 Volts 300 Watt heat pad.

    Convert rtttl ringtones to G-Code for playback on 3D printers.

    Copy and paste the RTTTL RingTones Format, (from the above link), here to convert into G-Code

    Great for print finished notifications!

    Requires printer firmware that supports M300 and a buzzer. (Marlin and Repetier have support)

  29. Capacitive sensor FAILS for 3D Printer

    Zero on the left of the bed is set perfect but moving to the right the nozzle is about 1mm above the bed when zero is selected.

    It appears that this sensor is triggering at different distances depending the position on the build plate.

    If it sensors the distance then it should be the same distance from the bed when set to zero. Even if the build plate is not physically level.

    LJC18A3-B-Z/AY PNP NC 3-Wires 10mm

    Capacitive Proximity Sensor Switch DC 6-36V

    Product Name: Proximity Switch

    Specifications Model: LJC18A3-B-Z / AY

    Outside diameter: Φ18

    Dimensions: 78 x 30mm/3.07 x 1.18″(L x Dia)

    Total Length:127cm/50″

    The detection method: Capacitive

    Detection range: ± 10mm (mm)

    Operating voltage: DC6-36V

    Output Type: PNP NC(normally closed) 3 Wire

    Color:Grey and Silver

    Weight:86g
    eBay seller : gobuyteam

    Proximity sensors, however, is the trouble they have compensating for changes in the environment over time. Changes in humidity, for example, dirt collecting on the sensor area, or a change in the moving object can impact sensitivity and reduce performance.

  30. MODIFI3D USB 3D Print finishing tool unbox review

    Finishing 3D prints should be easy and never a chore. Simply plug in the USB and in less than 15 seconds you are ready to go. You will be able to remove any unwanted material or modify your print without having to redesign and print again!

    I just worked out 8 Watts by 5 Volts is 1.6 Amps

    USB 2.0 standard allowed 0.5 Amp but I have one port with 2 Amps

    I was using a Wall Wart plug in USB, the Amps are most likely low on this, and not enough to power 1.6 Amps needed
    Four tips

    KNIFE TIP
    Cutting and removing sections including the removal of supports, brims, and rafts from your 3D print.

    NEEDLE TIP
    Great for clearing small holes and features or for detailed layer refinements in hard to reach places.

    POINT TIP
    General purpose tip for larger internal features and holes. Can even be used for making holes after printing!

    SCOOP TIP
    Prefect to remove stringing and imperfections from inside holes or recesses. Can also be used to blend surfaces where blobs have appeared.

    MODIFI3D Specs
    5V 8W
    Size: 15mm (0.6″) x 117mm (4.6″) excluding tips
    Weight: 120g (4.3 oz)
    Cable: 1.5m (59″) long to USB A plug
    Heats up to 420-450ºC (788-842ºF) in less than 15 seconds
    Works with PLA, ABS, Nylon and other 3D printing plastics

    Two microswitches in series so if ether one is Triggerd, (open), it will get a signal

    Not tested fully but it appears as if the Auto level height takes over some-how and can cause the side Z end stop to get knocked down. This is even though these two switches are connected in series, like one switch.
