    element14 Presents  |  MAYER MAKES VCP Profile  |  Project Videos



    By now a lot of you might have an old cheap 3D printer around. Clem upgrades his old cheap fire hazard of a 3D printer with a genuine Arduino Mega running Marlin 2.0 and a Custom made PCB to give it quick access buttons for functions  like Filament loading and Unloading and increase its security features with independent measurement of temperatures and Heater voltage and current. While upgrading his own machine he walks you through the settings you need to properly configure your machine should you choose to upgrade it.
