new pictures added to the album, so far everything has dropped together like bob should. this time around im using blynk to control movement over wifi, and that is where im currently at..time to code.

I made some more progress this week - I received the E3D V6 Clone and was able to put together and mount the extruder assembly:

I like the fuses of my RADDS:



Old style or car style .  :D

The Gen-L does indeed have two fuses but they are tiny, surface mount units located just behind the power input connector.
it feels good to get confirmation  :D... suspected those, one of a few cons with the board, I've seen on a few other boards where they held in place via a casing (made them easily replaceable).

Walking / He's Back...BoB V3.0
« Last post by k120189 on June 17, 2018, 04:12:07 PM »
with all the new variations of my beloved BoB i felt it was time for the OG to make his return.

differences from V2 include:
 "bucket head" now the lid goes on top makes it easier to pile all of your goodies inside.
 2S 18650 holder built in. finding a pack to fit was always a problem so now its built right in! with 1750-3000mah of capacity he will waddle on forever
designed for the hc-sr04 sensor for his "eyes" still but his brain has been upgraded from an arduino nano to an Wemos d1 Mini which means...
APP CONTROL! the wemos has 2 shields. 1 proto, and one power management board. giving this new design a nice neat control package, wifi, and one pack to power them all.

some things that havent changed:
still uses 4 9g servos, only this time they are metal geared
the knees and feet are the same as V2

here are some pictures to hold you over until i can test all the bits and pieces and release the files.

Sure, do pass on the info. Might save someone else some time troubleshooting.
BTW-In one of your early posts introducing the MKS Gen-L you remarked about not finding the BIG fuses that are so dominant on the RAMPS shield. The Gen-L does indeed have two fuses but they are tiny, surface mount units located just behind the power input connector. I think if they blow they will have to be replaced...not an easy task in my opinion but doable.
Thanks for introducing the MKS Gen-L to me. I like the form factor and the "all-in-one" layout.

..be good to get an update when you up and running.
Absolutely!    It probably won't be for a few weeks tho.  Hell, I haven't even ordered the bed heater or build surface yet.

what you gonna use for a build surface, 5 mm aluminum machined surface finish.
I still haven't completely made up my mind regarding the build surface.  I actually was considering a 220x220x5mm 6061 aluminum plate, but I was doing some research into the mass, and a sheet that thick has a mass of around 650 grams.  Seems like a lot of inertia-creating mass to be jerking back and forth on the Y-axis.
Thinning the plate to 4mm drops the mass to around 525g, and 3mm has a mass of around 395g.  I'm not sure where the trade off is between losing heat retaining thickness and weight reducing thinness.
I do know that the 3mm build surface on my buddy's Makerbot R1 clone is terrible at retaining heat.  If I want to heat the bed above about 85C, I have to enclose all the sides and the top of the printer to keep it from radiating away all its heat.
I'm probably going to go with a 4mm think plate - Seems like the best balance between mass, rigidity, and heat retention, although damn, half a kilo of just print surface?

(bed MOSFET module) one final thought on mounting where ever it goes, can you get to it in seconds and easily inspect the wiring occasionally!
A valid concern I hadn't actually considered.  Perhaps a removable or hinged inspection panel might be a good  idea.

looking good,
 another classic presumption of jinx! when talking heatbed modules I use ( and think all use this one  ::)
               

 compared to the gen l board in size, its a little monster. not read a whole lot on yours,  be good to get an update when you up and running. what you gonna use for a build surface, 5 mm aluminum machined surface finish.

especially if I mount it in a relatively small enclosure like in my proposed PSU boot
my gut feeling  is you dont, for the first 30 hrs of printing, see how it goes,  with one final thought on mounting where ever it goes, can you get to it in seconds and easily inspect the wiring occasionally!. 
        if you gona have a fire (bed wise) gonna be there or the junction of the heat mat.

 on tht note happy building... goes for coffeee
