Can anyone with a AZSMZ-mini and a stepper on the 5th slot confirm, that the following pin-assignment is correct:

step_pin 2.8
dir_pin 2.13
en_pin 4.29

Thank you in advance!

Yeah, +ThantiK is mostly right. I think, V2.1 is the first 'real' final version.

Hey, I just discovered, that there is an 3d-printing contest on instructables.com. I took the opportunity to participate with my little printer DICE and figured, that maybe you want to support me with a vote on your own?!

Hello! My name is René, I am a 34 year old german electrical engineer and this is my very first instructable. In my spare time, I love to tinker with 3D-printers. In the last years I did build 3 different 3D-printer on my own, each (subjectively :D ) better than it's predecessor. Now, for my fourth printer, I did it different. I wanted to build a good looking printer that is appropriate and small on my desk. And I wanted it to be top notch!First,...

Has anyone here experience with the Nscrypt products?
http://nscrypt.com/3d-printing
Interesting ideas in their FDM extruder. http://nscrypt.com/docs/nScrypt-nFD-Brochure.pdf
Thoughts and criticisms of the design?

+Florian Ford looks like a two-start helix on the worm, and it looks like the filament is driven by or near the OD of the driven gear. That and they didn't run any thrust and very little side loads through the motors gear box. I'm still curious to know what traction/grip contacts the filament.

One thing I find interesting is that for some objects having a really thick edge like 3mm with 40% infill can be more slow than doing a 0.3mm edge with 100% infill- but alas the 100% infill uses much more filament.

I'll just go on and tell you that my access to 3D printing is turning in a request to have something printer on our Stratysis behemoth at work.
I want the capability for myself, but I don't like "in the box" printers.
I would love to have a small version of the apis-cor house printer, but there are too many things missing from my skillset to get one made all the way. 
In any case, if you are wrong about anything in this forum. I'm not likely to be able to detect it. I am a serial dilatant.

Fix for display issue in FreeCAD-0.16 on GNOME in GNU/Linux.

If you have run FreeCAD-0.16 under GNOME you may have noticed that SpinBox controls (edit controls with associated up/down arrows) don't show their content correctly.

FreeCAD, a Qt-based application, uses controls of this type with vertically placed up/down arrows while the default QT style used under GNOME (usually adwaita-qt4) places the up/down arrows side-by-side reducing the controls edit area.

A solution for this is to install the Qt4 Config utility and the Qt fusion style (on fedora use: dnf install qt-config qt4-style-fusion).

Simply start the Qt4 Config utility and under Appearance|Select GUI Style: choose fusion. Optionally, under Fonts|Family choose Cantarell and Fonts|Point Size: choose 11. Select File|Save and File|Exit to save the changes and exit Qt4 Config.

You will now find that Preference dialog and toolbar edit controls show their content correctly and the program text matches the rest of GNOME.

12 V or 24 V?

While looking around for parts to build my own printer I noticed that e3d has two different heater cartridges for the different voltages. They say that the performance of both is equal, so I wonder how it would affect the rest of the printer?

Does it have advantages to use the higher voltage for the steppers or heated bed (which is probably going to be mains anyway)?

That's great, gives me a good way to test if this is the cause.

Hello. I'm a complete 3d print virgin looking to get info on where/how to even start. I'm looking foreword to reading and learning... and eventually getting started with my own 3d printing work. Maybe even be able to contribute to the community! Have a great day. Now......coffee.😎☕🍵☕

+Jaeson Kalmoni what Griffin said is partly true. Just to start with this matter it is really enough to get a book, which is not too old. I would recommend some but they are all in German. And besides that you will get some more information from such a book, which you would not get or oversee when looking in internet.

I posted the 3d model a few months ago, and thought I should show how it came out!
A blank white piece of plastic sure does look pretty amazing when you give it a coat of paint, and put it in its intended environment.

cool. I painted a mumble a while ago and it came out nice with a few layers of pains. You couldn't even see the lines

Apparently Hackaday didn't talk to anyone that knows what actually went on, so the article is unfounded speculation. Hackaday is just a blog for hackers, not any sort of journalism.
My speculation is that Makerbot had the growing pains of any small business, plus if your business hinges critically on technology you MUST get the tech right. 90% of startups fail within 5 years, for well known reasons.

Just curious, I own a DaVinci 1.0 and I guess I've never thought about the auto calibration...is it using a temp spike on the thermistor to tell when it touches?

No mention of the method...it just magically happens. XYZPrinting doesn't have the best documentation.

Are there any corexy designs that are completely open source? That if i wanted to sell them online I wouldn't violate any copyrights.

There's as much difference between different CoreXY builds as there is between all the different Mendels/i3s. Frame style, linear hardware, etc.

Question: is there anything wrong with using a pulley like this? It's the only way I can keep my frame design without stretching it. Both eye screws are on the shaft fine.

As long as you have a "D" shaft, you are fine. The closer to the bottom of the shaft the better.
