Carousel thumb top case clip
Printed on:
Ultimaker - The Ultimaker 2
Result:
Updated top case (both) and latch to have the tension screw applying pressure closer to the filament. Also updated geometry on ultimaker bowden case and added cable holder.
Feedback:
Still a work in progress.

Added top case (Top case um bowden file) to accommodate the bowden clip used on the original extruder. Have not tested this part yet.

Carousel thumb case fully assembled new
Printed on:
Ultimaker - The Ultimaker 2
Result:
Added new bottom and center case for a more tensioned gt2 belt. I felt like the previous case left the belt a little too loose for my liking. Also added a tension knob with some texture.
Feedback:
Took some time to get used to the new extruding power. I have to make sure the hotend can handle the flow, or else filament can build and flow out at an unexpected time and make the print look uneven. You have to make sure you have the hotend hot enough for the amount of volume your pushing through. Its different because before if my hotend was not hot enough then the extruder would just skip. Would like to hear from anyone else's experience :)

Carousel thumb latch paper clip
Printed on:
Ultimaker - The Ultimaker 2
Result:
Added door latch to be used with round 8mmx3mm magnet. Two magnets were too strong so just used a paper clip where second magnet should be.
Feedback:
Let me know if you have any issues.

After many failures I noticed I needed a way to get back to "zero" after a power outage or configuration issues. I have updated the program (mlmCnc30) to include the G28 command so that you can now go back to a specific location after a reset (and re-set the zero location). also added a minimal configuration file that is not really to helpful yet. Also I'm changing up my workflow to use flatcam instead of blendercam since its just easier for pcb work. I have added a document (in newWorkflow.zip) of the steps I took to go from fritzing to to gcode using flatcam. There are also some example gcode files in there as well. lastly I'm also changing the design of the tachameter to use i2c instead of serial since its more reliable and so it frees me up to use ttyAMA0 for GRBL. in the newWorkflow.zip I have included the fritzing file of the new design, the attiny code, and a python test program to check everything is working on the breadboard before building it. I have not made the changes yet in the mlmCnc code yet but I will add that "soon".

As you can see from the picture this seems almost pointless without auto-level. I don't think I have enough time to figure out how to do a software auto level but I am thinking about how I can get a consistent trace cut...

Updated OLED menu (mlmCnc28.zip) to be able to test gcode/job before running it. (Must be running GRBL 1.1 on Arduinio)
