PCB smart effector and carriage adapters for Haydn Huntley's rods

Postby dc42 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 5:00 am

Any of you who have fitted Haydn Huntley's magnetic rods and ball studs to your printer may be interested in the Duet3D PCB effector and carriage adapters, which will be shipping next week. It incorporates a nozzle contact sensor for bed probing based on strain gauge technology. See https://www.duet3d.com/DuetAddons/DeltaSmartEffector for details.

Hmm, no one has replied to this?

I just got a filastruder email about this going on sale on their site and thought it was something new and interesting...

I've got a small project I was working up to testing where I took out the strain gauges from an old wii-fit board--used the gauges years and years ago in college.

Anyone try this out and like it? There was a bit of talk about Piezo disks, are those better than this?

I don't understand why these would be restricted to Haydn Huntley's magnetic rods and ball studs. I think it would not be a lot of work to fit the SeeMe barballs to the carriages. The idea of the tip of your hotend being the probe is appealing. FSR's do that, but introduce some error margin due to bed or mount flex. I am satisfied with my FSR setup, but would certainly be interested in this system if I had no probing yet.

Edit:
Yeah, I can see that fitting the barballs to the effector is probably a bit more difficult...

I guess you could fit the barbells to the effector using a printed or machined adaptor piece.

Except for the limit to magballs, there are even sadder limit to use e3d hotend

Sorry my engrish :-/ you could PM me in Russian.

These are not limitations unless you have limited imagination - see my response to your post in the other thread.

What other widely-used hot end do you think we should have designed it to fit instead?

I don't think you should, because E3D is kinda most widely-used. It's just me who want to use Diamond hotend with it, and my lack of skills to alter open source hardware except for mechanics makes me sad.

Sorry it looked like criticism, it wasn't intended.

I'm already looking at designing a version for a Diamond, because I would like to use one too. What do you think would be an appropriate rod spacing?

A version for the Cyclops has been requested too.

I'm a huge fan of tricklaser products, so I'll prefer to stick with SeeMe rod spacing, for example using these things https://www.seemecnc.com/collections/pa ... -joint-kit (did I understand question right?)

As for diamond, it would be great to have hotend above effectors, like I've done with tricklaser effector https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1128037 . What do you think? Is this possible with smart effector?

Yes the Diamond would need to be above the effector with the nozzle poking through a hole in the centre.
