New printer! Dead electronics :(

postby Teejay187 » 06/21/15 @ 13:28

So I bought a new RigidBot! It should be able to print 10*10*10" when it is working, which it is not at the moment.

Build quality is 8/10, but the quality of the electronics is a 2/10 at best. The solder joints are horrible, and the power supply looks dangerous to use.

I ordered new parts of a much better quality, and I bought module based components to avoid this happening again. I bought DIY parts so a lot of wiring and software fiddling is to be expected. I accounted for all of the weaknesses of the original design, and once done, it should be up there with $2-4k printers. With new electronics I am meow at about $650 total.
