Sorry not much time to type we are at Fablabs 2nd birthday event this weekend. Comments at the preview last night said I wasn't blogging enough any more..
Oh its quite cool that the first build of the PCB worked !!!
Its running using a slightly changed version of Marlin firmware @ 16mhz need to find a 20Mhz boot ROM for Sanguino or figure out what's wrong with my environment settings as Make file wont make! my altered boot ROM code.
Side View of the test Jig
Showing 50V 500W PSU to drive the 4.2A Stepper motor
ie 2 Phases at 4.2A = 8.4A hence a 9.9A PSU at 50V
A quick set of random-ish pictures of various stages of development of bits and bobs.
Huxley Seedling is still in progress there are over 100 pictures of Huxley Seedling yet to be moved to my PC from Midges camera.
Part of the full build instruction set for the final version.
There have been many many re-designs and improvements made over the last year.
Here is a quick over view of some of the other projects:-
http://reprap.org/wiki/BIQ_SanguinoCNC PCBs arrived on Thursday first pictures.
BIQ_SanguinoCNC /Laser is a new project for controlling CNC machines or Laser cutters with a a 3D printing ability.
In fact the first two CNC machines it is going to control here are Big Bertha the 1200mm x 620mm CNC and a new Project the CNC lathe very basic design Idea is to take 500mm of stock material to drill and cut parts to length in an automated fashion.. (not holding my breath on this idea yet but looks promising)
The Huxley seedling A frames are becoming a universal building block for all sorts of new Ideas projects
60 BIQ opto end-stops made - only enough end-stops for 20 Huxley Seeding Kits
Pictorial guide on making leads for the BIQ opto end-stops.

If only the RepRap WIKI was as easy as blogger to upload and edit you posts and pictures It would make life soo much easier!!
Bodge It plans to research & develop quick, easy and
cost effective everyday solutions in a wide variety of areas and future
technology that may one day become part of everyday life.
Currently working on three main projects in relation to wind and
solar energy and 3D printing.
Don't Seem to find time to Blog much at the moment hundreds of pics not even uploaded Ive uploaded things on Thing verse as its quick and easy to do.. instead.. well there still loads more to up load but with a pet laser cutter theres alwas another idea to try out..
