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:

Have fun,

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
