Great project. I love the "that's a piece of paper" in the video. It looks amazing.

Only one thing missing....."Ting!"

Great "just for fun" project. What is the resolution and how long did it take to print the plane?

I think "for fun" negates the need for specs, no?

Ok, Ok, lemme see (lets do "Y")...

  • 200 steps/ rev on the motor
  • *16th's = 3200 steps/rev
  • 2" drum = 50.8mm *pi = 6.28" or 160mm
  • steps into distance...   
  • .002" per step  --or--  .05mm per step

The pen is supposed to draw a .5mm line, so in theory, I am 10x more accurate than the width of the line being drawn.

That's how you make a project video. No long intros, show what it can do and what it's made of. And have personality. I just wanted to see it do the RocketBrand logo instead of the F-15.

Amazing how you can get all this stuff to talk to each other... AND do things.

Cool stuff.
