Re: Arduino Uno R3 + Arduino Motorshield Rev 3 + Grbl

Unfortunately I found this out after getting my hands on a motorshield. I've resulted in using EasyDriver boards instead, hopefully I can fit two onto a protoshield. The motorshield may be compatible with Marlin if you were keen to try it out.

Re: My Build Log - Low Cost DLP Printer (Hopefully Under £80

Friday was quite eventful, my Makerbot Replicator 2 broke down (turns out to be a broken thermocouple), this has probably urged me more to get on with my DLP build. Over the weekend I mainly focused on the electronics side of things, when I wait for the replacement parts for my makerbot and wait on ...

TR8*8 Anti Backlash Nuts

Does anyone know of any sources of TR8*8 anti-backlash nuts in the UK or EU?

The only place I can find them is RobotDigg (USA) and on Alibaba (from china, in multiple quantities).

If there is no UK/EU suppliers would anyone here want any if I bought 10+ from Alibaba?

Re: My Build Log - Low Cost DLP Printer (Hopefully Under £80

Heres some progress pictures of my frame. I'm waiting on a lot of the components to be delivered, but do have a working Tilt axis and the majority of the frame assembled. The next task should be to cut the sheet material for mounting everything to. Thinking about getting a shapeoko, if I do I'll hol...

Re: My Build Log - Low Cost DLP Printer (Hopefully Under £80

Here's an update of my build. • I've assembled the main sections of the frame and have a tilting section all hinged up. Should have pictures later on. • I just need to decide how I am going to mount a stepper motor or servo motor with cam for the tilt. I really want the tilting frame to return to a ...

First/Front Surface Mirrors - Best Suppliers?

I am looking for a good supplier of First/Front Surface Mirrors,. I am based in the UK but I have family that Work in the USA so a supplier there wouldn't be an issue. I am looking for mirrors around about 100mm x 120mm, however they can be a bit bigger or smaller than this, I will adjust my project...

Re: My Build Log - Low Cost DLP Printer (Hopefully Under £80

The Arduino motor shield uses H-Bridges to run their stepper motors, which Grbl (a popular CNC firmware for the Uno) does not support. You might have some trouble getting (community) standard firmwares to run on it, but I'm not sure. I'll do a bit more research into my options then, my electronics ...

Re: My Build Log - Low Cost DLP Printer (Hopefully Under £80

I've been thinking about what electronics I should use. Would an Arduino Uno & Arduino Motor Shield be suitable to control my Z axis Nema 17 stepper motor and either a servo motor or stepper motor for tilt? I have been offered a motor shield I can use with my spare arduino, if they would work th...

I am Andy, I recently graduated from Strathclyde University with an MEng in Product Design Engineering. I made a lot of focus on 3D pri...
