A simple hack to adapt a 1.75mm filament Mk8 extruder to handle 3mm filamented is presented. This tasks is the first of 4 main adjustments to commeria extrusion … Continue reading Adapting Mk8 1.75mm filament Extruder for 3mm filament
The purpose of this profile is to record on collaborate research project on architectural technologies, additive manufacturing, and morphogenetic processes.
We managed to get the stepper motor working. We used an Arduino Mega to control the stepper motor with an A4988 Driver, and an Arduino Uno to emit a digital … Continue reading First tests stepper motor extrusion using 2 arduinos (simulating signal from ABB robot)
Fabrication Kickoff meeting with Zac: Studying the possibility to link Arduino Extrusion control with Robot motion though a common serial channel communication protocol Several outputs we have found a more … Continue reading Meeting with ABB
For this first part of the research 3D printed Samples of TPMS Geometries designed, produced are tested. The Triply Periodic Minimal Surfaces (TPMS) are modeled by meshing an interpolation of … Continue reading TPMS 3d Printed Tokens Compression Tests Discussion
The base place goes through optimization process to find reduce deformation this time without fixed domain. The number of periods is significantly increased (and thus, to keep equal density, cell … Continue reading Compression Test Results for Optimised Tokens without fixed Period
The following tokens have been designed through the point based rhino/ grasshopper / karamba / galapagos script to minimise deformation without changing the base period by fixing the domain parameter … Continue reading Compression Test Results for Optimised Tokens with fixed Period
Token Reception Compression Tests on 1G2 Compression Tests on 1G1
Hi all! We are happy to announce that this Research has been awarded with a generous grant from Frank Ratchye Studio for Creative Inquiry. The Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ … Continue reading FRANK RATCHYE STUDIO FOR CREATIVE INQUIRY GRANT AWARD
In order to define a base piece to algorithmically optimize in subsequent designs, the following test tokens have been printed. C1 Token: PLA Filament at 0.6mm thickness. For finding appropiate … Continue reading Initial Laboratory Tests on Compression Performance. Finding satisfactory caracteristics for continuous print.
Hi Lolo, I send here the code for the Arduino extruder, the main Idea is to be able to control via Infrared several independent parts for the extruder: Fan Buttons: … Continue reading Arduino for extruder control
