Greetings RepRap Builders!
Since this is my first blog (ever!), I thought I should start with a summary of what has happened so far:
- Built rapid prototyped parts in February.
- Bought structural components in March.
- Built more rapid prototyped parts in March.
- Bought electronic components in March.
- Cut steel pieces to length in April.
- Built more rapid prototyped parts in May.
- Bought miscellaneous components in June.
- Asked a co-worker to cut threaded rod to length in June.
- Soldered PowerComms board, Stepper testers, and Opto Endstop boards in June.
- Soldered Universal Controller Boards in July.
- Asked a co-worker to create the Bed in July.
This morning, I am going to create the in-circuit programming cable for my PICKit 2 programmer. I actually bought two programmers for this project and the Ramsey Electronics kit worked to program the first PIC processor, but I really want to know both programmers work. The accessories that I bought for the PICKit 2 have not worked and do not have pin 1 labeled. Therefore, I've tried programming a PIC right-side up and upside-down with no results. I at least had the foresight to buy way too many PICs. Wish me luck...

It is cool to see you using Reprap in a school. I use the Pickit2 also and Had to make my own board for programing the Pic's I can write up and send you a wiring diagram.

I've not programmed them in-circuit. They don't often need reprogramming so I never bothered making up the cables.
Good luck, and it's great to have another RepRapper. :)
