Since last time I posted we have finished the assembly of the printer. All the electronic components work. All that is left now is to do some fine tuning, which have been doing for some time now. Another thing that we need to do is find figure out the optimal settings for the printer.
For my IDS I am assembling one a 3D printer that our one of our teachers bought. So far we have assemble the majority of the physical parts of the printer, such as the main supports and the motors. We still have to assemble most of the electronics and and the heat bed, but that will take some time. I estimate that optimistically we will finish assembling it in about 1 week. But in reality it will take probably about 2.
