Documentation

MakerGear Prusa Build Instructions - These are a complement to the Visual Prusa Instructions


Electronics

  • RAMPS
  • Polulu
  • Fan for Polulu
  • Power Supply
  •  ???

Mechanical

No mods, yet. Note that Rick from Makergear prints with his X "backwards", so the X endstop needs to be reworked to be "correct"

Software

Ian (user link) is currently using the following:

  • skeinforge link
  • firmware TBD

Print Status

The printer is not printing. Ian hasn't been spending the needed time, had a bunch of self-inflicted heater core issues, and just generally hasn't worked through it...

Current Work

Electronics

  • Get the fan on the polulus

Mechanical

  • Flatten the stepper shafts and remount the X & Y pulleys
  • Build and install new hotend

Software

  • Select and install new firmware
