FrankenVinci - Converting a Bricked Da Vinci to RAMPS Controller

Le Fri 15 July 2016

OK, so you have bricked your XYZ Printing Da Vinci 3D printer. Don't be down-hearted. Rejoice! Now you have a chance to turn it into something much more versatile. This article describes what I did to convert a stuffed Da Vinci printer to run on a RAMPS controller and thereby safe it from the eWaste stream. You will find the firmware I used together with the 3D printed components I designed to hold the new stuff in place.

Timelapse Camera Slide Version 2

Le Wed 16 March 2016

A while ago I posted an article describing a Camera slide constructed from the bits of a discontinued 3DPrinter project I was working on. It worked, but not very well. So I set about redesiging it with some other ex-3DPrinter bits and using a completely different approach. This new design uses a pulley around which a string or cord could be wrapped. This allows the CameraSlide traveller to winch itself along smoothly and easily. It is also less inclined to jam because the pulley is centrally located and allows the traveller to better follow the tracks.

Timelapse Camera Slide from a 3D Printer

Le Thu 02 July 2015

This is what happens to 3D Printer building projects that become too much of a drag. This timelapse camera slide was created using a whole heap of 3D printed bits that I had made for a 3D printer that I had designed. The camera rig controller is a RAMPS / Arduino Mega combination that would normally drive a Reprap style 3D printer. It is a relatively simple build and other than the 3D printed parts makes use of commonly available materials and components. The code provided can easily be modified for an Arduino UNO or Nano running a single stepper motor driver board such as an Easydriver or a Pololu board. there are some projects that just develop fast and easily - this was one of them.

3D Printing Workshop Resources

Le Thu 13 November 2014

This is a number of resources that I have developed for a series of public workshops on 3D Printing that I have been asked to run. The workshops are aimed at adults. If you are looking to get into 3D Printing these resources may be useful to you, and if you are looking to run some workshops on 3D Printing yourself, please feel free to use these resources as a basis.
