P3Steel Build Log (#14) – Heated Bed / Build Plate

  |   By  |  18 Comments

When building a 3D printer, there are lots of options you can go with for a build platform, and whether to have it heated or not. I will not go into all of them, but simply state what I am going to use compared to Toolson’s designs.

Amazon Echo Dot V2 Wall/Ceiling Mount – 3D Printed

  |   By  |  0 Comments

Brilliant original design of an Amazon Echo Dot V2 wall mount by halcyon on Thingiverse. I have had a lot of people ask for this to be printed on 3D Hubs and from their feedback I have updated it with some of my amends.

P3Steel Build Log (#13) – Print Bed Silicone Dampeners

  |   By  |  6 Comments

To support the print bed from the y-axis and the bed frame Prusa 3D printers use bolts, washers and nuts on each corner with a spring for tension. Toolson’s edition of the P3Steel does away with these springs and opts for a novel (genius) solution of using silicone dampeners.

P3Steel Build Log (#12) – RAMPS and Arduino Mega (aka The Brain!)

  |   By  |  7 Comments

For this printer I will be using the standard and simple setup of an Arduino Mega and a RAMPS 1.4 board. The Arduino Mega is the brains of the printer and will process all the g-code instructions from the .gcode files from either an SD card or over USB and tell the printer how to move, heat up, extrude filament etc by signalling all the motors, heaters and sensors on the printer which are connected via the RAMPS board, which in turn is connected to the Arduino Mega via the GPIO pins.

3D Printing Time Lapse – Mount Saint Helens – Thingiverse

  |   By  |  8 Comments

New 3D printing time lapse test using my P3Steel. Still yet to install Octoprint or a webcam, so have been testing with taking time lapse sequences on my old Canon Powershot A570 and a custom firmware from CHDK. This was for my eldest daughter who is in high school for her Geography class.

P3Steel Build Log (#08) – Y-axis Rod Stops

  |   By  |  4 Comments

When inserting the steel rods into their mounts on the y-axis it was apparent that the only securing force keeping the rods attached to the frame was the friction between the precision...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iO4zka3dz0 A neat little model to print and make from Thingiverse. I want to print the original full size Articulated Octopus, but for now I found this remix which is a keyring....

3D Printing Time Lapse – Raspberry Pi Zero Case + v1.3 REMIX

  |   By  |  0 Comments

I was in need of a case for my Raspberry Pi Zero so looked around on Thingiverse for a suitable one. I wanted a simple case with no mechanical fasteners, just something to protect it and have easy “snap on” parts. I went with the model by cfunseth on Thingiverse, but soon realised it wouldn’t fit the new v1.3 version of the Pi Zero.
