Plus the cost of a printer

Yes but once you have one you wonder what you did without it, always something you can fix or mod  8) not to mention the odd buck on the side.

Benbox / Re: Any of the software work on a MAC
« on: January 03, 2018, 01:26:04 PM »
Don't know if on a mac its different but i just run the test with the button on top of the laser pressed, it keeps it at minimum but i can still see where the image is going.

I found out by accidentally starting a burn and forgot to depress the button  :-[

Thanks Zax, it will just till i find the right one then I'll solder it, a lot easier and faster to just plug & test, change , plug & test etc. once found then solder it.

With the laser on the same side as the control box you will have to be careful as the laser can reach the control box.

Which control board do you have?

WoW, that's almost silver prices for the weight of the plastic in them, i can get a full kg spool from hobbyking for just a little more.
I paid 10.20 for the last spool and its pretty good, i am amazed at the price/quality its as good as some i have paid 25 for.

T2 Engraving / Re: cambio compiuter

Ok, just trying to be helpfull, not all people understand different lingos.
By learning spanish, hard to do for a Geordie, i can now understand italan, brazilian, portugese and many other latin american languages(if they speak slowly)
I fancy trying to learn chineese but i need to learn to draw first  ;D

cheers

For testing and finding the exact resister could i just push the legs of the resistor into the required pins on the back of the cable? would save a lot of soldering and desoldering.

Basically it reads.

Good day, i had to format my fisical hard drive on my pc, now i don't know how to go on to reinstal T2Laser. I have purchased a license,, thanks

Its italian but similar to Spanish

Glad to hear its working, don't throw the old arduino away, like i said in my first post the arduinos can lose the boot loader, you may be able to reflash it and get it working again. If you google installing bootloader on arduino, or similar you will find lots of examples of how its done, and what you may need. If you can recuperate the boot it will then flash with Zax's firmware and you have a spare ready at hand.

cheers
Derek

Edit, Forgot to say that if you have another arduino with  Atmel 328 chip you can use it as a bootloader for other 328 arduinos. When you install the arduino software it comes with a script to act as a programer,  "arduino as ISP" or something like that.

Probably not the mana se but the arduino nano sounds like it lost its boot loader or has corrupted for some reason.
You need to upload the bootloader again using a jtag(i think its called) there are others. You could also try another arduino nano if you have one, there cheap enough, about $3 for a clone.

Trouble Shooting / Re: Laser stops, can't send new code
« on: December 24, 2017, 09:45:07 AM »
After hitting the emergency stop a padlock appears where the home button was, you need to click it to reset, i was stuck for a while with that, laser staying on at last point no idea, Zax will sort you there.

cheers

Have you tried reflashing the firmware, i have had an arduino that sometimes got stuck in limbo and seamed locked although it connected then nothing, reflashing cured it.

The clear plastic legs have also changed design, mine came with 10mm tall rubber feet directly into the 20x20 frame and what were legs now are in the air and holding the frame together in the corners. I have seen 3 or 4 different versions on different sites and youtube  builds.

General Discussion / Re: Maker Select V2 Hot End
« on: December 22, 2017, 01:48:14 AM »
I made mine from the Ikea STUVA 18, 60 x 50 x 64cm and as luck would have it in the damaged section i got a door to fit for 1.50, can't find any damage on it.

PETG i use 235, first layer 240, 65 heat bed, 0.2 layer hight and don't squish the first layer like for PLA or it will stick too much especially on glass or pei sheet. i use hairspray or glue stick, not to help it stick but to help get it unstuck otherwise you will probably break te print getting it off. Let it cool and it usually comes of by itself. I use the fan at 50% or less from layer 3 up as i use 3 bottom layers. Speed depending on what it is but usually about 45mm/s but have gon as far as 80 when in a hurry. On small objects i slow the speed down to 25% using the tune menu to give the first layer time to set before the next layer.

cheers
Derek
