If I am reading correctly you can. Do an autotrace with the Mode ~~> Sketch (Hatch) selected.
You can select the line distance for your hatch fill in Settings~~>Advanced Settings~~>Hatch Options~~>Custom Spacing

No sorry, that's not what I mean. This will give the usual waste of driving time when the laser is going to pass over the entire area where it is turned off most of the time. That's not what I'm looking for.

I want all the black bites in plain striped image to fill in the width of the line and not just as an outline. Can I call it outline with fill ? Subsequently, it must be printed in the same way as if you have made an Auto Trace. In Danish and translated, we call it to print vector graphics with a plotter. Hope it says something now.

Regards Leif.

Hi Zax.

Have a little modest wish for your outstanding program. I need to be able to convert a picture of a line drawing to vectors for printing. Not just the outline or the middle of the line like now but that you follow all the black in the file until it's made to printable vectors. My reason is that it will be much faster to print as vector with small amounts of black in the file then you let the laser drive across the entire writing area as today. Hope you understand the meaning.

Regards Leif.

General Discussion / Re: Some info regarding the Eleksmaker
« on: October 02, 2017, 05:04:32 AM »
The advantage of EleksMaker is you can buy all spare parts on Ebay / BangGood and similar places for no money. But the Eleksmaker laser cutter has a big design flaw as you draw a pulley belt with a width of 6 mm up and down through a rail with a slot that measures only 5.7 mm. This means that the pulley belt belt does not last so long before replacing. Therefore, you should buy 10m GT2 pully belt at BangGood at the same time with the machine.

I have the same machine and have not found other major mistakes on it.

Regards Leif.

if you dont find the hardware you can try these ones.  dont know how well they work

The belt fasteners you've found look really good. I'll will try to write 6 pieces out to compare.

Have printed the new end caps/belt holders.  Now, to find enough hardware for the new ones.  Thanks very much for the link!!

Hardware ? Do you mean the extra 3 mm screw/nuts ? They should all companies dealing with small items for hobby use have in stock. The last I bought was in a ordinare hardware store here in Denmark. I'm sure you can also find them at Banggood, Gearbest and Hobby King.

He is from Rockford Illinois USA :o

 :-[  Oh, the man getting wet feet if he just has to go around the corner for a good deal.  :'(   

The text under info is still relevant, even if it is going through google translate !!!    :)

Adjusted the current. Doing the same thing, just more exaggerated. Where can I get a new stepper driver?

Maybe here in your "backyard":    ;)

Pse, just read the text under info further down the page.

General Discussion / Re: Could an A3 machine become a 3D Printer?
« on: September 29, 2017, 01:35:37 PM »
Thats what I was thinking. Have the bed move in the z direction.
I figure, to raise the machine with some 2020 extruded and install a z axis like the one in the hypercube evolution project liked above. There is also a remix on that design to allow for one motor to control two lead screws (one on each side) for more stability. That and take that "z platform" and just bolt it/marry it somehow to the legs for rigidity. Keep the x/y fixed and move the z up and down

I saw the Bid E but cannot justify the price. I would like something that big, but and A3 would be a perfect size for me.

Now, the largest heated bed I could find was 300x300. I do have a friend with a rather large CNC mill (600x250), so I could probably convince him to route me out a PCB heated bed. After all, thats the type of heated bed he made for his custom built 3d printer.

40x40 cm heated bed:
50x50 cm heated bed:

The same can be found in China or another low cost country much cheaper.

LOL Landbo, you beat me to it, there I was thinking, I can help Radarlarry with finding the belt tensioners on thingiverse!

One might be lucky. / ;-D

Have just printed a set out to replace the poorly designed original.

Thank you for help with the belts.  Yes, my small bolts are sitting flush, so I will try to use longer ones.  Yes, I did break one of the acrylic pieces, but I'm using half of it and the large bolt to hold down the belt.  Seems to be secure, but I would like to 3D print one if i could find a .stl file for it.

Regards Leif.

Hi, first post here.

Can not imagine it's a belt problem you have, but a problem that your drivers for the stepper motors do not deliver enough voltage/power. There is a small trimmer on each of the drivers that controls how much power/power each shaft's stepper motor receives.  Usually you get given a voltage can be measured at the driver but here you need to set haphazardly pious. Maybe another person here on the forum knows how the power is measured, I'm missing the measurement to so my stepper motors do not jump any step over ???

Regards Leif.
