Re: ACME screw upgrade for Shapeoko Z-Axis

sorry to make something so simple complicated, but I have tried opening in inkscape, fusion, autocad and its not opening right in any of them. it opens but the whole thing is scaled by 10. only reason i know this is because i'm able to measure one and only one dimension on the dxf correctly which is...

Re: Shapeoko <--> 3D Printer

Has anyone tried the silicone heated beds?

For that Mk2 PCB bed, do you just solder the wires/thermistor on and then stick a plate of glass on top for your print surface?

Re: Shapeoko <--> 3D Printer

If you use the Pololu DRV8825 drivers, you don't need to wire their VDD, because it's actually the #FAULT output, not a supply pin. Check out the Pololu page on them. The only component you really need is an electrolytic capacitor (regular, not low ESR) to decouple VMOT (47 uF 35 V). How does the b...

Re: Shapeoko <--> 3D Printer

A RAMPS 1.4 board can handle up to 35V... You just need to remove a 1N4004 diode if it's there, or you'll fry the Arduino... Thanks but when I realized how simple the board really is whipped up a design in eagle and broke out the functions to different boards. Unfortunately I'm an EE that likes to ...

Re: Shapeoko <--> 3D Printer

Thanks for the source of the gregs reloaded. I will look more into that.

I'm sure that I'll have to whip up some kind of adapter plate to get the extruder mounted to spindle plate.

I just used some perf board and wired it myself... Yeah i was thinking along the same lines, pretty simple board really... I vehemently discourage business with makergeeks! I've done so and received poor quality parts (Reprap 3D printer which turns out comes from China when they say they manufactur...
