I love ikea….
So this was the project. http://www.instructables.com/id/3d-Printer-Enclosure-from-Upcycled-Furniture/
I went to ikea. Got 2 lack tables and put them together…. I want my printer higher up. ELEVATE TO THE LEVEL OF THE GODS!!! no. just high enough I can watch it cause I like to watch it go back and forth while I make printer noises.
So I ordered a 3rd table. Put it on top. Sweet. Much better. I moved the printer into the enclosure this weekend (no sides put on it yet) and decided I needed to get the lighting in place. So I took some neopixel strips I had laying around and hooked them up to an arduino.
Ok, so that’s now how I am leaving it 🙂 but it did look cool. Now I can set the colors. Plain white for printing. I am trying to figure out how in octoprint to get a hook in to detect when it’s heating up. That way I can turn the lights orange or red to indicate heating phase.
So I did a timelapse and a vid. The vid of the whole rig setup
Here is the timelapse test print
I am working more on trying to get some good photo and video in with these projects too. If you like the videos give a thumbs up and a subscribe.
