Extra Wire / plug

Recommended Posts

There is an still unused cable, nothing more. It ended with plug near the print head, near the other connections for the fans that are recognizable by the black fishnet hose.

The images in the gallery, please Set on "Public", otherwise we can not look in larger views.

We included some things in the design that arent used, as they costed very very little to add, but would allow us to give some upgrades later on. This is one of them and is intended for an extra hotend.

Uhm. No. This cable was a preperation for a safety circuit (combined with the 2 jumpers next to the endstop connections) if the safety is disconnected then the machine shuts off all "high power" drivers (heaters/steppers)

Now, in the end, we couldn't find a spot to put a proper temperature switch that would trip fast enough and be compact enough to fit in the head.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
