[Solved] Arduino not getting detected USB2.0-Serial issue

Published on in Category Electronics

There are two reasons why you Arduino Clone board is not working A fake FTDI chip is used in your device CH340G USB to serial chip is used your device instead of FTDI When fake FTDI chip used There reason is here because latest Windows driver for FTDI chip that stopped working with cloned FTDI chip, this turned all those fake FTDI chips are at risk of being bricked.

Drifting of print in 3D printers and RepRaps

Published on in Category 3DPriting

Here are the some of the most common reasaon why 3D Prints are drifting MOTOR BELT OR PULLEY: First thing you need to check is motor pulley. it may be slipping from time to time. You could mark your motor axis and your pulley so it’s easier to identify a slipping pulley. LOSE BELT: Make sure the belt is not too lose, so it slips. ENDSTOPS/LIMIT SWITCH FAULTY: Does the limit switchs are hit during print.

List of DIY Open Source 3D Scanner Project

Published on in Category 3DPriting

Here is the list of the most popular open source DIY 3D Scanner project, choosing any one of this project you will be able to build a complete functional 3D Scanner at your own. Ciclop Ciclop is a Open Source DIY 3D scanner kit. This project has been developed under the RepRap community philosophy: machines that can be made using 3D printers. For this reason, most of the pieces included in the structure are 3D-printable and many of the vitamins are shared with other open designs such as the Prusa i3 Hephestos2.

Published on in Category 3DPriting

If you are trying to 3D print ABS, you may be face problem of 3d print adhesion to the print bed, ABS wont stick easily like PLA filament, In this article we will list solution to the ABS printing problem from different source. This tips are not just for ABS, it should apply to any high temperature filaments. 3D Printer Calibration Level the print bed : Need not to say thing, even for PLA you need to keep the print-bed levelled for good adhesion.

8 Top File Formats for sharing 3D and 2D CAD Designs

Published on in Category Basics

Each software has its own file formats, but the every one uses different software due to many reason, like cost, feature, etc. You may want to share your 3D/2D CAD designs with your customer or friend which can be further modified or with a fab house for prototyping/manufacturing. In this case both your software and the recipient’s software should understand the file format. This is where Neutral File Formats comes into play, here we will discuss about the best native file formats to use.

Dummies Guide To Miniature Radial Ball Bearings And Their Types

Published on in Category Basics

In this article we will see in details about the roller/radial bearings, and its types and dimensions. Parts in Bearing ##Seals and Shields To help retain bearing lubrication and prevent contamination from the environment a seal (contact) or shield (non-contact) can be employed. Often no seal (Open) is required when the bearing will be housed and externally lubricated or when operated in a vacuum. Seal Identification Type Symbol Properties Cost Description Shield Z They have fair dust resistance and poor water resistance.
