Re: State of the Printer

You folks seem to have a fascinating project here. I may have to reconsider my thoughts on rebuilding my V2 into a V3.2 and just rebuilding it into a functional V2 from its current knocked down and stored condition.... I don’t think I have ever even seen a core X-Y printer in operation... but then w...

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

Thanks Xeno, :) Right now I am deep into reconfiguring my (manual) machine tool workshop and getting it all working again in its new location (Heated and air-conditioned) and while its mostly small machines (by industrial machine tool standards) it is a lot tougher to shift bout than it was 20 years...

Gene, add about 30 years to your current total (guessing you are about 30 something?) and we will see how much you have left of short term memory! :o I hope your luck in this area is better than mine! I just hit 70 last week and I admit I are starting to really feel my age

Re: heat break stuck

I never thought of looking at facebook as I don't use either facebook or twitter...

Thanks Ramai, I got my kit for the v2 at the start of December 2016 and so it has the flat type of power supply in the shiny metal case not the computer power supply of the ATX type that the early kits had so I hope I am ok there...

Thanks Xeno, I like your thinking on that... the use of terminal blocks up top sounds like a smart way to do it.... Time to start sketching out how I want to do it...

V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

I doubt many folks recall my participation here in late 2015 to mid 2016 building and using my V2 but in August of that year I had to put it into storage as I had to go back to work in a job that required constant travel. I am now back to a settled status and I thought it might be fun to upgrade my ...
