    Progress continues !

    Many additional tweaks to the code were required and it is working VERY well now!!!
    It works flawlessly with the 6 builtin test models in the Peachy software.

    I've continued to hack away at the arduino code for the z-axis.
    I have had more problems getting it to work than I expected !! It took a lot of experimenting to know what the system really needed.

    Super Exciting Update !!!

    Well... I'm excited anyway :-)
    Over the last four days I have been hacking away on the Z-Axis system, testing and coding.
    The Arduino code I got from Rylan was...

    Great timing !!!
    Yes, life had washed me away again but I always wash back up on shore eventually ;-)

    I do have some updates...

    I have a WORKING stepper motor driven Z-Axis platform!
    I can't...

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone !!!

    Life has been busy the last month and a half!
    With this new year, 2017, coming into focus, I have been envisioning what this new year will be...

    I would call it Significantly Stalled.

    One or both of these things need to happen to get things rolling:
    1) The investigation needs to "conclude" something
    2) A new investor/funding needs to be...

    I've been working on an epic update but have rewritten it about 3 times so far...
    So, a mini update.

    Drip calibration continues to mess with my mind. Nothing adds up. Calculating the drips/mm...

    Ok. I have definitely confirmed that Cura 2.3 works with the Peachy printer !!
    I will have some pics uploaded later (I will add the link here)

    My most recent issue with Cura was that when I...

    I will take some detailed pics as soon as I can but it will be a few days (out of town :-(
    Meshmixer sounds interesting. Craftware can also place supports in user defined locations (haven't played...

    Yes, just about every slicer out their is made for an FDM printer unfortunately. Thankfully, they provide extensive options to change how the software works with the printer.
    Which bring me to...

    I did the dripper calibration and a few print tests with glow paper.
    The dripper calibration numbers just didn't seem to add up so I took the "drips per ml" number from the pop bottle and multiplied...

    OK. Found a stew pot at the local thrift store ($4).
    It has a surface area 5.81 TIMES larger than the pop bottle. That should make a difference !!
    I also found a 8.5x11 glass sheet at the Dollar...

    I really like to top two.
    I think the planetary gear pump would work the best but the second link that is multi part might be easier to print.
    I wil need a much wider print container to have any...
  14. Can you find a printable version and post a link?...

    Can you find a printable version and post a link? I will find time to test it along side printing and testing the scissor jack.

    I spent last evening at the local Makerspace. I chatted with those there about the issues with the drip system and the Peachy in general. MANY ideas flowed back and forth. It was a great night !!

    I have a lot on the go these days so I'll be a bit briefer than usual. Feel free to ask questions !!
    All images for this print are already uploaded to the usual place.

    I used different settings...

    This would be worth it if you could get the scissor jack for cheap and adjust it manually during the print.

    As soon as you start down the road of using a stepper motor (with stepper controller and...

    A scissor jack would work great.
    However, for the cost of the jack (or less!!!) you could have a stepper motor based Z-Axis system and have all your problems solved.
    It's just not worth...

    I also did another rook print and I'll post about it soon.

    It’s BIG PRINT time !!

    Not sure what you mean by "artifacts".
    Which picture you referring to? Can you be more specific as to where the artifact is?
    I will take better close-up pictures and post them when I can.

    Ok. I've uploaded the latest pics.

    Quick update...

    SUCCESS !!!!

    I set the Laser to 100% and the print speed to 80mm/s.
    For my test I used on of the models in the Peachy Software "Library" (they are there for testing purposes)....

    I got my FTD Snow White resin last Tuesday and promptly did a print.
    The resin was described as "low odor" and it certainly was less scented than either of the Makerjuice resins (I can't be sure...
