Is there instructions for building? All the vitamins have been delivered and we have printed about half the parts.

No, not yet. You will have to look through this thread and the dev blog.

Hangprinter kinematics is now supported in release 1.20 beta 11 of RepRapFirmware for the Duet series. See [duet3d.com] for the documentation. Test it with care (e.g. use reduced motor currents), because it hasn't been run on a Hangprinter yet. The auto calibration probably needs more work to get it working well.

What are your speed settings? And weight of your triangle are you using an e3d vacano?

Yes, I'm using a Volcano. Do you mean the speed settings in the slicer? I use different ones for each print. My weight data are already in this thread.

Ya for the slicer what is your average default printing speed and xyz movement speeds so I have a place to start we started the build today I ordered the carbon fiber since it is a huge weight savings.

Ok, nice. Between 30 and 60 mm/s for print moves and between 100 and 200 for travel moves. For thicker layer heights (0.8 - 1.0 mm) I use slow print moves since the maximum rate at which we can melt plastic in the Volcano is around 140 g/h.

When you have a chance can we get better resolution pics of the wiring for the Mechaduinos and the the i2c board thanks alex

we started the assembly process today here is a pic we almost have all the hardware installed we need some better photos. we dont want to wire incorrectly. any chance of a wiring diagram? [photos.app.goo.gl]
Re: Hangprinter version 3

Look through version 2 forum thread and dev blog for pics and wiring. All wiring except the i2c bus, which requires 5V<->3V3 conversion is done the same way as on any other RepRap. Mechaduino D0 is dir, D1 is step if I remember correctly.

It looks like you use flat 623 bearings in the rollers instead of v-grooved ones.
I suspect that your ABC lines will slip off, but it would interesting to see if you want to test this assumption.

I see that you use Mechaduinos.
Be sure to read the Machaduino manual and the firmware README for usage instructions.
In particular, calibrate all the Mechaduinos and give them different i2c-addresses when you flash them.

They where supposed to be v grooved but your right need to fix that. thanks for the help

Just read the hangprinter v2 thread there are no pics or anything about Mechaduinos or the i2c
Re: Hangprinter version 3

Mechaduinos were first used on the v3.1.

Blog posts that depict or mention Mechaduinos: 1, 2, 3, 4.

Looking for higher resolution of this pic [hangprinter.org] and [hangprinter.org] last can I get a close up of the i2c breadboard please

That's fredrudolf's printer, but I did a web search and found this

Connect the same sda/scl signal to all Mechaduinos.

What's the situation with the calibration calculation for v3.3? And how much weight do you use for anchors?
Re: Hangprinter version 3
December 06, 2017 02:06AM
Still working on the auto-calibration.
Details on the blog.

Manual calibration follows the same principles as before.
The v3 mover is more workable than the v2 was, making the measurement process less painful (but still hard).
The web-calculator is not in use anymore, I will remove it soon.

I use ca 5-10 kg on the anchors, depending on the friction between the specific floor and anchor surfaces.
Thanks for asking about the weight, it reminded me of something important.

Safety notice:
Prepare for the event that somebody trips in the lines by introducing a known weak link.
  • If you use Mechaduinos or other closed-loop servos, the ABC-anchors must be free to move towards the origin. Use friction-based ABC-anchors with a moderate amount of weight on them.
  • The movement system should not be strong enough cut a line into somebody's throat. Adjust motor currents and/or anchor weights until this requirement is fulfilled.
  • Secure your winch very firmly in the ceiling.
The consequences of not preparing a weak link could be:
  • The whole winch unit could fall down and hit somebody in the head.
  • Throats or other body parts could get entangeled and damaged by the lines.
Do not count on the lines to snap, they will not.

Hey Torb,

I think I am ready to start building a v3. I have pretty much everything ready to go I think.

Except:

Mechaduino optional addon
4 x Mechaduino PCB
More than 20 jumper wires (if Mechaduinos)
5V->3V3 level converter for i2c usage (if Mechaduinos)
Tmc2130SilentStepStick addon
A few more jumper wires

Would you recommend or can I go without these items to get started? I would guess the mechaduino's would take a lot of guess work out of things. Not sure where to buy Mechaduinos either.

Thanks.

Hi Chris, glad to see you here!

No problems, any drivers will work just fine smiling smiley
Just make sure motors don't get hot enough to melt the printed parts

If you use Mechaduinos you don't need tmc2130s or another stepper drivers

Donated and start printing parts tonight! I am excited to see this work. Sorry for all future question. Really new(about a year) to 3d printing.

Well we have the steppers spinning now the hard part calibration and anchors. sadly Tropic Labs shorted me a magnet so I am waiting for delivery on a replacement. I found from the company that supply's the ones to Tropic Labs I still have not received a reply from them about it. Otherwise they are really cool
