Ultimaker - suicide!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker - suicide!

Now that's a headline to grab attention. But nothing to worry about.

I added an suicide option to my Ultimaker, so it can switch off after printing. I've done some documentation at:

http://daid.eu/blag/2012/07/03/ultimaker-suicide/

Photos will follow a bit later.

If people are interested in this upgrade: I still have parts to do this 4 more times. However, the parts are less expensive then the shipping. And most of the work goes into soldering, wiring everything up. But I wouldn't mind helping building/installing this into dutch machines at the next UltiEvening for example.

Dear Daid,

I made it even simpler.

I just connected a solid state switch: Selectron HRT D 4805L to Arduino ;) A0

I connected a simple on/off/monentary switch to the 2 240VAC pins of the solide state relay.

At the end of print I insert the M81 command

It works fine

Regards

Franz ;)
