State of MPCNC 3D printer

Some days ago my new metal extruders and a dual extruder arrived. So the old extruder had to be disassembled from my Prusa I3B pro  to add it for some tests to my new MPCNC machine. The dual extruder replaced the single one and magically the Prusa I3B pro became a Prusa I3C Pro. First tests with printing dual colors at the same time were … State of MPCNC 3D printer weiterlesen

MPCNC Igus style version with Smartramps (Arduino Due) controller

It’s the right time to present the Alpha-Version of a Igus-style M(ostly)P(rinted)CNC. This is a slightly modified version from the original one published by Allted on thingyverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:724999). Mostly all metal bearings have been replaced by new designed 3D-printed adapters. My motivation: Save money for the hardware parts to buy a more powerfull control: Smartramps (Ramps for Arduino Due) with Repetier firmware running on it. … MPCNC Igus style version with Smartramps (Arduino Due) controller weiterlesen

Raspberry Pi 3 with 4.4.7 full preemptive realtime kernel running a synth

The Raspberry Pi came back to me… The RPI3 is running a Ubuntu Mate on top of a 4.4.7 linux kernel with full preemption. First I tried to get the zynaddsubfx running with a graphical system (desktop) but it works much better with a headless system and all unneccesary daemons running in the background stopped. We needed also to do some tweaks to optimize the … Raspberry Pi 3 with 4.4.7 full preemptive realtime kernel running a synth weiterlesen
