This is probably not news to a lot of you but, if you've never tried a 0.6mm (or I guess larger too) nozzle go and order one right now. Fat layers are awesome, prints are so fast! After spending a long time trying to print a large, for me, piece the 0.6mm solved all my first layer issues and the print looks great!. I need to try the 0.8mm now too, oh and my I "need" a Volcano too.

Bounty ! Get a free Smoothieboard v1 and Smoothieboard v2 in exchange for a PCB design :) Please reshare to your PCB-designing friends :)

I'm offering one v1 board and one v2 board ( when available ), to the person that will design the following PCB :
* One-sided PCB, can be CNC-milled at home ( like http://reprap.org/wiki/Gen7 )
* All components PTH, except for the microcontroller ( LPC1769 to run Smoothieware )
* Pololu sockets for 5 drivers
* USB connector
* SD card socket
* 6x Endstop inputs, 4x Thermistor inputs
* 4x Mosfet able to handle at least 12A with adequate connectors
* 2x fan controllers
* ATX PSU main power input
* Connectors for Reprapdiscount GLCD
* As compact as possible
* Must be Open-Hardware ( CERN OHL )

It's time we had a Smoothie-based CNC-millable PCB, for the hardcore DIYers :)

Please reshare, it'll help get this done :)

Has anyone tired a positioning system based on an inkjet printer style "opto stripe" (no idea what the correct terminology would be)? See an example in this video (@2:46 if the time code below doesn't work):

Seems cheap, fast and quiet!

First smoothie print! The poor RAMPS I left attached is feeling jealous.

New printers to build!
Talos sources released!

Spartan - The Cartesian 3D printer/CNC platform

Tria Delta - The Delta 3D printer

Silphium - Laser engraver


The Delta and the Laser engraver are a work in progress and the drawings are not completed yet.

I'd appreciate it if you could share the word.
