Congrats to Jeffery W.
for winning the September 2023 Mothership Box!
This month, the Mothership prize is a Voron 0.2 Kit (Without printed parts) from LDO
All filament samples are at least 20 meters in length (actually more, I increased the length to eat up the extra filament being left behind on the rolls)
Those looking for a sample spooler, MadMonkey designed this one and it's been my favorite so far https://www.printables.com/model/36621-expandable-sample-spool-holder
DSK has also made a sample spool specifically to fit the samples from the new machine: https://www.printables.com/model/428314-sample-spool-snap
Feeler Gauge Set
While I've only ever used the paper method for leveling my beds, I've seen comments throughout the years about using feeler gauges... so I figured we could try them out together!
+Nano version of the UFOs received an ESP32-WROOM
I feel the need, the need for speed!
What interested me the most about this project was working with a laser and receiver. The videos show that it's as accurate as a device you could buy in the store. Theoretically you could measure the speed of your printer carriage, or play around with measuring the speeds of other things. While not practical in 3D printing, I think this is the first laser project.
I've modified the files below to fit the ESP boards that I provide, as well as provided enough space so you can use the female jumper wires on all of the pins instead of removing the pins as the original project calls for. The only soldering required is for the power button. The pinout is written out in the top of the code file for the ESP board. I'll try to figure out the fritzing program DSK uses to display a better pinout.
Programming the ESP32-WROOM Boards:
There are 2 ways you can program the board.
Arduino Web Editor:
One way is to use the Arduino web editor. You can create a project in the online editor and copy the code into it. Just follow the websites directions on getting the needed plug in installed. The board you would select is the esp32 dev module
Locally on PC:
First you will need the Arduino IDE installed on your computer. Which you can install from
https://www.arduino.cc/en/software . If you are using windows 11 I would suggest to download and install the legacy IDE version as new one gets some access denied errors.
Once the IDE is up and running you will need to install the esp32 board.
First thing you will need is to install the Espressif esp32 board library. You can do so by following the tutorial on the website below: [Note for our board select the esp32 dev board]
After the board is installed you can open up the .ino file for the project.
You can the select the board Esp32 Dev Module and the correct port and click upload.
This should compile the code and send it to the board for you!
