What is Sprinter ?

I have read around google a little and just know that sprinter is some form of new hack firmware for the ultimaker, to make it run a lot faster ?

i am probably a million miles wrong, but i would love a clean explanation about what is sprinter ? and how does it effect ultimaker ?

Thanks guys.

Ian :D

Hi,

Sprinter indeed is a firmware hack with several improvements and a different approach of positioning.

In stead of moving steps step if creates a path with a acceleration-speed-deacceleration.

See:

http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Sprinter_firm ... _Ultimaker

Sprinter has a derivative called Marlin.

A it finds it key to succes in trying to keep speed constant by looking ahead in your printing sequence.

See:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
