Re: GLCD killer

yea its 60 + shipping, the problem i see with fire tablets aren't they only allowed to run authorized amazon apps and operating systems?

advantage to this is its a direct screen on the pi, no networks required.

Re: Direct drive bowden extruder using Autodesk Fusion 360

So far I can safely say that it is by far the best free CAD program out there for assemblies and pretty damn powerful for everything else. One very neat feature that I used several times in this design is the ability to directly import parts from McMaster's catalog. It's going to be my go-to softwa...

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

Hey, quick question on the current state of Heuristic calibration... I think it was back in March when I last tried it and ran into the issues running it with the ethernet enabled and/or the LCD screen.

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

bebopr++ with a expanded board peppr/take-5 so i can get the 5 drivers.

I like it, the printer works, it uses the standard gcode not reprap type so takes some adjustment with the slicers.

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

In the long term, I'd like to develop on a platform that's going to last for a good long time. Maybe that's the BBB. I could even see going back to the Smoothie platform, although they'd have to already be shipping the Smoothie 2 for awhile, and I'd have to not see people complaining about bad serv...

Re: Smoothieboards unreliable - what new controller to suppo

While we're on the subject, I'm just wondering how everyone here connects to their smoothieboards and runs prints. What software do you use, what version of the software? Have you been able to print without keeping the USB connected? It's always been a PITA for me to connect each time, and now that...
