Building of Mini Kossel 3D Printer – 22

cDSC_0095

It turned out each Kossel Mini kit maker uses modified Marlin firmware that suits their 3D Printers.
Marlin Blomker version which I’ve referenced heavily started working flawlessly right after the upload firmware.

avr-objcopy -O ihex -R .eeprom /tmp/build5776194644516541631.tmp/Marlin_delta2.cpp.elf /tmp/build5776194644516541631.tmp/Marlin_delta2.cpp.hex
Binary sketch size: 94,294 bytes (of a 258,048 byte maximum)

Initial verification of the Kossel Mini using Prontface.
The steps I performed are on http://blomker.com/Kossel_Mini_Assembly_Guide_V1.0.pdf

I ran the Hotend at 185C for 15 minutes, 230C for 15 minutes.
Setting hotend temperature to 185.000000 degrees Celsius.

cDSC_0089

Setting hotend temperature to 230.000000 degrees Celsius.
cDSC_0091

Setting hotend temperature to 0.000000 degrees Celsius.

I connected one 12V fan to D9 extruder pins for cooling the board when this 3D Printer is running.
M106 manages current flow of D9 pins by changing pulse width from 0 (stop) to 255 (maximum current).
