Out with the three remote controls, in with the 3d printed daughterboard housing for the firetv remote. It contains an arduino nano, an IR LED, a lipo charger+battery, has 6 buttons (av receiver power, projector power, aux power, receiver input, vol up/down) and will clip onto the side of the firetv remote. Best trick up my sleeve: if you don’t press a button the arduino will take no current at all.
Flauschmeister flauschball! #mastocats
Akira does not approve... #mastocats
Can you say: “Kilroy”? #mastocats
Yeah it seems to work. Have to dial in my cutting depth a bit but hey, you can see what it should look like. And i just broke one drill while testing the workpiece z homing sensor (because i forgot to ground the drill). So i have now a version of marlin that can probe the workpiece to determine the length of the drill in the chuck. And i have a modified version of flatcam that uses that for tool changes. Enough for today #3dprinting #cncmilling #pcb
And so my trusty mendel90 becomes a PCB mill... some firmware patching has to be done though. I have to optionally disable the heater runaway protection as there isn’t even a thermistor connected right now... and if course the first prototype of the toolhead is not rigid enough. Iteration 2 will follow when this one proves working. #mendel90 #3dprinting #cncmilling
Akira in his natural habitat... well at least the color matches #mastocats
