Fog Buster Coolant mister bracket for Bridgeport Mill

Bracket I designed to hold the Fog Buster cutting fluid mister on my Bridgeport CNC mill. Clamps onto the quill so it follows tool up & down so mist stays right on tool. It was mounted on head so it did not move with tool. Drawn in Fusion 360. .stl & .stp files on repables.com http://repable...

Re: mhackney's Real V3 Build Thread

Oh, I'm not sure about that. But I think the v2 & v3 bases are different heights.

No, they are a bit different. But may not make a difference to how your FSR plate mounts.
Of course the files are on github.

Re: Duet Auto-Calibration results - More Data Needed!

Have you measured the steel balls? Are they truly spherical and all the same size? All of the 4 sets of steel ball-studs I got in where somewhat egg shaped and varied in size more than I would like. So far I have found the white molded plastic barbells made by seemecnc have been better and more cons...

Re: Duet Auto-Calibration results - More Data Needed!

So your deviation has approximately doubled with your newest printed parts setup?
Or was that a mis-placed decimal point?

Whip Clip Eliminator for HE280

Some people have trouble with the whip plug un-plugging itself when printing. One option is to print a clip to retain it like one of these http://repables.com/r/808/ http://repables.com/r/811/ I don't care for the way that looks and it still does not seem very secure.

Re: Duet Auto-Calibration results - More Data Needed!

@DC42 could a function be added to the firmware to allow individual movement of each tower? Then we could fasten a dial indicator to the carriage and command it to move say 25mm then measure the actual movement to determine your actual steps per mm. Likewise, measuring each tower individually could...

Printable probe bracket

Bracket I designed to use a common end stop switch for probing. Mounts to the MAX Metal Platform.
http://repables.com/r/815/

The calibration built into the dc42 firmware on the Duet board works wonderfully!


Fusion 360 and .step files also, so you can modify for other platforms.

Re: Delta Calibration Wizard now online

This is the difference between the six factor and seven factor calibration with dc42's code. The six factor cal doesn't touch the arm length. (My OctoPrint plugin only uses the six factor, as do my Duet-equipped printers.) g. Okay, so is there a way to use the other method without octoprint? Is the...

I use them also. They are great.
Use small tip on soldering iron, just enough heat to melt plastic, any extra heat does not work as nice.

Re: Delta Calibration Wizard now online

Wizard makes nice flat 1st layer within .1 mm
BUT part size is off...
275 mm model prints at 270 mm
Fine for vases, frogs, Yoda heads, etc. not acceptable for real functional parts that fit properly.
Wizzer changed arm length from actual 300 to 310


Please make an option to not change arm length.

Re: Interfacing to the new HE280 accelerometer...

Looks good.
What size are mounting holes? 4.2 mm dia. would be good in my opinion. (to fit onto stand off screw)
Also, the older SeeMeCNC aluminum stand offs where .375" dia., so you would want to make sure nothing shorts out with those.

Re: P003A HE280 [Solved?] Auto Leveling Issue/Bed Leveling Issue/Calibration

@Michael, have you tried moving the probe points in 15 mm or so ( I used 127 MM radius vs. OEM 142.68), to see if probing is more reliable? I am wondering if probing at the extreme travel very close to tower is any of the issue. Also try probing opposite of towers and see if reliability changes. You...

So, I have been playing around with SeeMeCNC's probe board, changing location of probe for horizontal radius.
