Ultimaker - suicide!

Recommended Posts

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:

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 ;)

    • "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.
