Printrbot closed down without much warning in July earlier this year – together with founder Brook Drumm, we take a look at where Printrbot came from and what happened to the company that started the Kickstarter hype in 3D printing!
After Makerfaire Prague, I got the opportunity to tour the Prusa Research headquarter and saw how their popular MK3 and MK2.5 3D printers are made! We also check out the Prusament production line and run into early models of the freshly announced SL1 resin printer!
I also explain how to burn a bootloader to a 3D Printer that doesn’t have one yet. But really, you might not even need one! Use a USBtinyISP as a programmer or re-purpose an Arduino board you might already have to upload anything even to mainboards that do not come with a bootloader installed.
Ever wanted to get rid of the buggy or outdated version of the Marlin firmware that shipped with your printer? Just update it to the most current one! I show you how to set up the mainline Marlin firmware on your kit 3D printer using the Arduino software package.
Onshape pushed some updates to their terms of service a few days ago, and it drastically changes what you can do with it on the free plan. My only option is now Fusion360, which I’ve wanted to try for a while anyways specifically for CNC milling – no better time than now! Discuss this video
