Many 3D printer enthusiasts may be for the first time diving into electronics tinkering.  The electronics landscape is very different today than it was 30 years ago.  Today we have micro-controllers and breakout boards and a lot of the harder design work is already done for you.    But the fundamentals themselves have not changed.Choosing the correct wire size for your 3D printer's motors, hotend, heat bed and sensors is very important.  It is not always one size fits all.Let's compare a wire to a water pipe for a moment.  A water pipe carries a certain volume of ..

VoIP (Voice Over IP) services are not new.  They have actually been around since at least the mid 1990's.  But it seems the average person is still reluctant to take the plunge.  Why is that?Marketing.  The major communications players are still trying to make money on their analog services.  Why replace a system that works and makes money for you?Complexity.  Unfortunately, there are more complexities in setting up a VoIP phone.  This is probably the biggest factor holding many people back.Emergency Services.  This may be the biggest item that people ha..
Boitier RAMPS Arduino LCD12864 / RAMPS Arduino LCD12864 case
ThOne common issue when trying to make custom parts for our 3D printers is finding or designing a suitable casing for our electronics.  Well, Hubert TAXIL from France seems to have come up with a fantastic solution.The Boitier RAMPS Arduino LCD12864 / RAMPS Arduino LCD12864 case is a control case inside which is designed to house an arduino card + RAMPS1.4 + LCD 12864.http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1633395A notable feature of this Arduino/RAMPS/LCD case that most other similar cases don't have is that the parts are designed to be printed without material support.The assembly consists of..

BLTouch Review
I am a relative newcomer to the 3D printing arena. Although I have been observing the development of the technology for a number of years, the idea of taking the leap from electronics in computers to mechanics in a printer daunted me. But I finally decided to take the leap when I saw a low cost, decent quality printer appear on Kickstarter in August of 2014. Unfortunately, that project was a major flop. But fortunately I was able to learn a great deal from it. Although the design of the printer was questionable, the concept upon which it was designed on was salvageable. After a number of..
