What kind of sensor is that?
We could always add in a screen if you were technically inclined, and had one lying around, or you were willing to pay for it.
You could also see what the current RPMS are by buying a cheap harbor freight tachometer. I’d get more comfy feelings with that independent measurement anyway.
For the wobblies, you’re…[Read more]
IMO, the firmware should be handling this. IIRC, Marlin didn’t for a long time. I’m not even sure if it’s been fixed.
Setting the max speed of Z to something in the firmware should slow down a combined move until the Z component is less than the maximum. I’m pretty sure the 1.0rc versions don’t. Or if they did, some other bug was causing fast Z…[Read more]
That would give you the current, which is proportional to the power, but not the RPM. When the tool is under load, it requires more current to keep the RPM constant. Adjustable current is what the dimmer switch we used to use provided.
Unless there was some ripples in the power dues to the rpms, I dont see how that could be used for constant…[Read more]
These forum have another weird affect on my brain. I frequently can’t find some tool in my garage and my instinct is to ask here. I don’t know why you would know where my zip ties went, but I always want to ask.
I love finding solutions there. My friend and I spent a fun afternoon looking for the perfect plumbing parts to make our beersbee set up, but we added the constraint that it had to cost less than the cash we were carrying, which was like $15 between us.
This one just caught the corner of my eye and I thought it was funny what my brain saw.
Definitely tiny. But also high contrast. You can change the font size to whatever, but it doesnt make the screen better. The api also supports simple progress bars too. I have one on my laundry machine. There is one button, but they moved it to the back for some reason.
Dont judge me by the dirt, its in the basement.
If you have to spend $33 on the dimmer, then there’s not much breathing room.
The power supply is the next obvious choice. Do you have any idea how much current it requires? I don’t know about the dimmer, but the rest should be pretty minimal. A linear voltage regulator can create 5V from 12V pretty easily, and they are cheap, but they are very…[Read more]
I’ve had good luck with MobiXTerm in windows, although I think that company gets flack from the FOSS religious because they tend to rebrand open source tools as their own (although they follow the letter of the licenses, including providing source code to modifications). They do make the tools easier to install. It’s also possible this new…[Read more]
The good news is, it can be improved :).
This gets said a lot, so I’m sure you know. When you’re going through looking for loose bolts, don’t over tighten. It would also benefit you to check that the Z is perpendicular when looking through that.
– Start with something very simple and easy to measure. Something you can cut in one pass,…[Read more]
Just watched the video. On a piece like this, one thing you can do is make another gcode file that just drills 2mm deep holes in the middle of those waste pieces. You can run that first, with you clamps, and then drill and put screws in thise holes to hold the whole thing down. That will hold it tight to the spoil board.
In the pics, it looks…[Read more]
Something looks pretty wrong with those cuts. Was the design sharp corners? It should have been able to make the outside corners of those tails a crisp right angle. It looks like they are rounded and not the same rounded on each tail. What does the design look like, and what are you using for CAM?
Looks like a fun project though. We just need to…[Read more]
Yeah, something like that was about what I was thinking. Normal hex bolts or carriage bolts (thats what I call that type with the round head and 4 sided part underneath) could work. I dont have a specific project in mind, but I like this idea.
