Nah, he’s got more mad video skillz than I do. I bought a belt just before the accident and now it needs to be shorter by a couple of inches. I’m sure someone here knows where I put the punch…
Are you using Ryan’s crown file or did you make it yourself in Estlcam? You might want to look at your units of measurement if you make it yourself, inches to millimeters can make a huge difference in how far it expects to move before drawing. 🙂
Sounds a bit like you have the wrong image flashed. Perhaps MPCNC firmware instead of MP3DP? All three endstops should be NC as you have them wired. Does the hot end temperature show up with a reasonable number even when it’s off? I usually see the low 20s since it’s in the house… There are two fan for the hot end. One is wired directly to the…[Read more]
You are likely better off building a drop table to handle thicker material. Your maximum cut depth is going to be dictated by the bit length and by the rigidity of the Z axis. You can keep things really rigid by using as short of a Z as the bit length requires, plus a bit for clearance. If you just drop your spoil board down a bit you can put…[Read more]
Changing the angle and direction of the spool feed into your extruder can also help with the axle type spools. Feeding from the bottom can help put enough tension on at the start to keep it from sliding off to the side.
The 1/2″ EMT is just going to bump the weight up without doing very much to the stiffness. It’s better to keep the weight down instead. 2’x4′ is really better suited to the Low Rider, but it’ll likely work well enough unless you get crazy with hard material or high speeds. 😉
There are two basic ways to wire up to ethernet jacks. Since the motor only needs four wires and the ethernet cable has eight you can pair wires up, using each twisted pair for one of the stepper wires, or you can use half of each pair for each of the stepper wires and leave the other half disconnected. There’s little to no functional difference…[Read more]
The problem with a low tech solution, such as an IoT scale in your sock drawer is that it only tells you if you have socks or not. You really want a computer vision system to verify you actually have pairs of socks with matching colors. Once you have that it’s fairly simple to put a robotic arm in to sort them for you as well.
