Tommelise 2.0 goes into production
- a less that rock solid USB link (not that that matters a whole lot given the EEPROM print buffer built into the system
- a z-axis that could be a bit more stiff and a z-axis stepper that could use a bit more torque (for milling work)
- a bit of workon the PC software side
All that said T2 is doing very good work right now. Last night I started proving the preliminary design for the electromagnet spools for the linear stepper motors that I hope to use in Tommelise 3.0. Here you can see one of the two halves for a spool being milled out of 3/8ths inch HDPE.
