Ultimaker is up and running beautifully. We thought the printer was losing some steps on the X-axis, but it turned out to be a loose pulley. Those things have to be surprisingly tight for them not to slip.

Layer height was 0.3mm. Quality wasn't bad but it looks smoother in the video than it really is. Here is a pic of the very same print: http://5w.fi/5blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/ultimaker2.jpg

The building of the Ultimaker shall continue tomorrow. Here is a time-lapse video of today's build. I guess it's around 75% complete, so tomorrow we will hopefully see it in action.

Blender 3D introductory class is now over, and it was a great success! We didn't expect this many people, and had to close the registration early. Seems we'll have to do this again in the future. Suggestions for the next classes are welcome!

Special thanks goes to:
Lassi Haaranen for the excellent teaching,
Uusi Tehdas for the spacious space,
Symbio for sponsoring the food,
Ville Ranki for organizing,
and everybody who attended!

Second day of Ultimaker building. One stepper-driver seems to be broken so we'll have to figure something out with that. XY-Axis (axes?) seems to work just fine. Tomorrow is new-years eve so the build might not get along that much, but we're nearly there!

SCARA controller program is looking good, it loads .DXF files and they can be placed on the work surface. SCARA then proceeds to cut the images starting from the inner shapes and continuing to the outer lines. All this uses python and pygame library for the visualization. Cut what? How about 10mm steel ;) Stay tuned.

After some port-sniffing, we figured out that the laser engraver understands some basic HPGL-commands. Now it's possible to use Inkscape to draw the images instead of the horrible stamp making program that came with the engraver.

Here's a video of acrylic being cut at full power.
