Soldering SMD components to tiny PCBs with a 3D printer hotend

Interesting (ab-?)use of a 3D printer hotend to solder SMD components to a tiny PCB:

After reading that post, I had to login to the UM forum for the first time in a year or so, just to give the guy a like :-)

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

It is fun. I am active in the one in my hometown near Stuttgart. We meet once a month to help people that come with their items. It is amazing what people bring and what percentage can still be repaired. On some events we had auccess rates of over 70%! Götteborg is a little too far to travel with a ...

Since I know we have a number of Swedish users here: Is there something like Repair Cafe in Stockholm?

Is there a trial version to test it out?

I mean, really, what the heck kind of response is that? ?

How many people design the pieces they print? 1%? 2%?
Sorry that my answer offended you, but I design most of the parts that I print myself or at least modify them myself before printing them!

Re: Ultimaker Software News, Cura 3, Cura Connect etc.

Why don't you design your parts already with the supports?

Re: Measure in STL files

I have downloaded the free for home use version of Autodesk Netfabb and it's measuring capabilities seem to be what I need. They could be a little bit more intuitive, but I think that goes for the whole Netfabb ;-)

Measure in STL files

Every time I need modify 3D models where I only have STL files, I find it extremely difficult to "measure" stuff like distances and angles. If I import the STL in Fusion 360, I can use Inspect but it does not really "snap" to the right places and so I get very unreliable measurements. Is there a too...

Re: Issues with print job when retracting.

Since you mention that the printer hasn't been used for a longer time: Has the filament been stored dry? Maybe you have moisture in your filament and that produces these extrusion issues. Gently drying the filament could help then.

Re: First time owner, need advice

In general AWG12 wire is AWG12 wire, so you could use the speaker wire as it is the same gauge. Just make sure that you are not near any hot parts with the speaker wire. If you need to be close to hot parts, e.g. a heated bed, then wires with silicon insulation are better.

Re: Simple 3D Printer mainboard for a filament joiner?

It is surprising how little modification is needed to convert the Adafruit Sous Vide cooker code example to a working filament fuser code :lol: I used the Sous_Viduino code from Adafruit as a starting as it has a menu, PID and storage for set values and uses the RGB backlight version of the monochro...

Re: Simple 3D Printer mainboard for a filament joiner?

I finally managed to convert the ideas that I had collected over (too many) months into an Arduino shield to drive the filament fuser! The shield has a 12V input, an optional 12V to 5V step-down converter to drive the 5V part without the need of an USB connection and the necessary parts to drive the...

Re: Suddenly my SD card isn't read by my printer

The card that came with my UM2 also was not readable anymore suddenly some weeks ago. Since I always used two cards interchangeable, I just continued with the remaining one and threw the other away... maybe I should have tried this tool :-(
