Custom challenges require custom tools! Follow along as I design a lawn topdressing tool in Fusion360 and show you how to use parametric design, print the massive tool on the CR-10 and test it out on the front lawn!
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Ever wanted to get rid of the buggy or outdated version of the Marlin firmware that shipped with your printer?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.
Ok, let’s talk about Nylons, or Polyamides and flexible 3D printing materials. They’ve been around for a while, but I still think they are a super interesting – even if I wouldn’t print everything with them.
