Re: MAX METAL Frame

pm me your information, I’ll take some if not all the parts. Maybe we can work out a deal?

Re: Trick Laser Max Metal with Linear Rails Respin

Those Mechaduino's look really cool. Definitely an easy solution for closed loop motor control. FYI: Some of you pictures don't seem to be loading Yep, it looked to be a very interesting project so I backed it. I made a post here about it a while back but not sure how many people backed it. Once I ...

Re: Latest Firmware?

I was hoping @626Pilot would merge the huge update into his version so I could do some testing. I really enjoy using his heuristic calibration routine, makes life really easy!

Trick Laser Max Metal with Linear Rails Respin

This idea was taken from mhackney, he had a great idea of adding linear rails to the existing Max Metal frame. The frame is an amazing platform as it is, but linear rails would just be the icing on the cake. I am making a new thread so to not steal his thunder. As of early September, I think his pro...

Re: Heuristic (AI) calibration for delta printers on Smoothie

hey 626pilot, love your work, I have been using it since day 1! Any plans on merging in the major code refactor from july? (http://smoothieware.org/blog:14) Supposed to have fixed the issue with path planning and bugs with S3D as well as improved acceleration calculation.

Yep, you really need to read the guide in detail and focus now on the parallelism of your arms. Print those calibration prints in PLA and show us the results.

Re: Printed Parts Not square

ccavanaugh had posted (I can't remember where on the forum) but a guide to getting dimensionally correct prints. The reasons you are not getting perfect 120 degrees is due to either the squareness of your arms and or tower lean. Take a look at this PDF that goes through a pretty good diagnostic proc...

Re: underextruding, but only around circles?

What is your extrusion width set to? It should be around 110% of the nozzle diameter. What hotend are you using? Could you explain why the extrusion width should be set to 110% of the nozzle diameter. What are the benefits of this as compared to 100% width? Doesn't the slicer just automatically cal...

Re: Open-source industrial servo motor

If I am reading it write you can get torque feedback. That could be a simple way to find Z zero by just tapping the nozzle on the bed. Or getting some feedback from the extruder about just how hard it is pushing. exactly what I was thinking too, I will definitely be exploring the possibly of using ...

Re: Open-source industrial servo motor

It will help fix prints, but with no way for it to keep the rest of it in the loop, then we could easily see it drawing a large section of a layer as garbage, and causing more issues as the print continues, so while it will eliminate large shifts, realistically the parts will still be flawed, altho...

Re: Open-source industrial servo motor

Cute! Shame they've capped it at 24V though, means it's kinda limited to the same gear that can be driven directly from a controller board with baby drivers on it. If they'd gone for 48 or 70V support it would have been extremely cool for the CNC router crew. yeah thats true, but could still be goo...

Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL with Linear Rails

Fishbyte, I sent you an email about the parts. You actually need top and bottom brackets with idlers to offset the belt (see the previous page of this thread) and you need to modify the slots down by the steppers to provide clearance for the idlers. If there is interest from others I can make a few...

Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL Build

Ok, I see what you are saying, but what's the benefit of doing so? Are we actually seeing an appreciable difference? I suppose a bracket can be made, but would have to be sized based on the top and bottom pulley/gear size. I'll take a look at my CAD models later and see if I can whip something up.

Does anyone have a 3D-printed part that makes the belts truly vertical if you have Trick Trucks? There is a part for if you're using the SeeMe carriage yoke, but that doesn't do anything if you have the full metal Trick Laser platform & carriage set. Not exactly sure what you mean by truly vert...

Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL Build

I'm not certain anything smaller than a 20 tooth will fit without the belts rubbing inside the extrusion. It's a close fit. Yes it was indeed a very close fit, have got to get the gear centered just right. I ran the belt by hand and could not feel any rubbing, so I guess 16T is probably the smalles...

I went with a 16T GT2 gear from tridprinting. http://www.tridprinting.com/Mechanical-Parts/ . They seem to work just fine for me. I like the 16T because with 0.9 degree steppers, and 1/32 micro-stepping, I get an even 400 steps per mm. This also translates to more even theoretical resolution breakpo...

Delta radius is independent of arm length, that's why you can adjust them individually.
