I’m proposing to enlarge the old K40 we had donated to us .
This project will be will not be funded by the space, the funding and parts will come from the group doing the project.
At the moment we have a lots of the parts from doing the enlargement, we have on hand the 20x40mm vrail, one of the old metal frame tables out side in the pile of things .
The base for the project is this,
in the research I have been doing on the controller we maybe need to go to a 32bit controller, we could still stay with a Arduino mega and a ramps board , i have a ramps board with a couple 8825 drivers or tmc2100 .
The 3d printed parts we can print here , the cost of the filament is $34.95/kg its Esun petg from cubic tech in Melbourne.
The Vrail is $10/per 3 mtr length.
The Delrine wheels will be a cost aswell.
So does anyone want to join this project? and do you have any other ideas to add to help this project.
