Powering The Octopi Off The Printers Power Supply

December 17, 2020

Was tired of having the power sockets in the wall full. With the new printer, I would need 4 slots to power both the printers and both their pi’s running octoprint.

I ended up ordering some buck converters and the things needed to hook them up to the Ender3.

I got everything soldered together and cranked 24v from the Ender3’s power supply down to 5v so it would not release the magic smoke from the pi

Got them added to each printer and ended up printing out some cable clips and an enclosure to keep everything nice and tidy.

Now that both printers have the buck converters I need to add LED strips to the printers, so I can clear up even more space in the power strip.

New Ender3

December 10, 2020

Ended up paying off the first Ender3 a while back printing things for other people. After my last print job, I figured I would use that money to pick up another printer to improve the print bandwidth.

First printer on the right with all the mods and a glass bed, and the new un modded Ender3

Printing out the usual benchy for the first print

Time to start them both off with printing all the mods for the printer.

Releasing The Magic Smoke From The LED House Number Prototype

December 7, 2020

Ended up getting a different controller for the House Number Prototype and did not check the power brick I was using. When I plugged it in all the LEDs started popping and the magic smoke was released

Who knew 5v LEDs don’t like 12v

LED House Number Prototype

December 4, 2020

Showed the BORK LED sign around, and was asked if I could do house numbers. I sure can.

I whipped together a smaller version of the LED sign making use of a really narrow strip of neopixels and a trinket which ill end up swapping out
