What ic do you use to make it work?

It uses an Arduino NANO, 4-digit 7-segment (comm cathode) display, 24LC512 memory IC, 4 momentary pushbuttons, some resistors and a rat's nest of wiring. Everything residing in a 3D printed box.

I was kidnapped by mimes.
They did unspeakable things to me.

Cool. I bought a few Nano's but that is for later tinkering. I think in my case, having too many hobbies/interests keeps me on the verge of being burnt out a lot of the time. In my shop I have a powder coating oven I built (and a spray booth), a lathe, an end mill, welders, a shear, a brake, a motorcycle lift and a bunch of motor cycles that we haven't rode in over a year. And I have wood working stuff too. And a ton of electronic components and soldering equipment. I have a half-built solder reflow oven in progress too. It's a 2400 sq ft workshop that my wife and I built (steel building) when I was a mechanic maybe 10 years ago. Now everywhere I look is "work" LOL. 🙂

Yeah, I can see you losing "focus" in that environment.

I live in an 1100 square foot condo (including balcony) with no garage. When I get the newest plotter version working and have a successful test plot, I immediately tear it down and put the materials back into their boxes 🙂

Our house was about 1400 sq ft until I added the garage space. So being I am a hoarder, I still have no space to work. And I am getting old so I need to remedy all of this before it's too late. 🙂 Are you in the US or Canada? I looked at those Cetus nozzles and they sure are pricey. Let me know what nozzles you need so in my spare time I can notify you of any deals. I am a good shopper.

 

Edit. Do you use Linux or Windows? Just curious.

 

Thanks,
Voltage

I live in British Columbia in Canada.

Thanks for offering, but I won't be buying any more Cetus nozzles. I'm just going to let the machines grow old, replacing nozzles with what I have left and then strip the machines for parts when I run out of nozzles. I love the Cetus printers price and operation but not their business model.

I have a love/hate relationship with my 3D printers, I love what they let me make and I hate servicing them. I'm not handy and they seem to gobble up huge amounts of my time fiddling with them to get them working well again (or at all).

edit: Mac all the way ! I have some PIs with Linux but I don't use them for anything (yet) to make it worth getting into Linux commands. The Mac uses a form of Linux in terminal mode and Python (2.7?) is also preloaded to Macs. Haven't found a big enough need to fumble with it either so far.

Ok good info. I bought that bed leveling sensor from TH3D for the CR10S and have it installed but didn't test it yet. Added solid mounts (spacers) and hope it works as it should. Adjusting and leveling the bed wasn't that hard but why do it if it can be done automatically.

I am going to need to run as I have a few things I need to get done today before the wife gets home but it has been great talking you and thanks again for you help. I hope I didn't wear out my welcome. 🙂 I will be watching the forum and hopefully be in touch soon. Maybe with my next project.

edit: I just looked up British Columbia. Looks like a great area to live.

Thanks,
Voltage

Get your errands done 🙂

You haven't worn out anything, Bill's videos are pretty comprehensive, so your next project should be a piece of cake 🙂

Thanks Will. Have a great day. I just bought a Kindle Version of an Arduino book so I can read it later.

Take care.
