MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
About the software and the circuit board, you guys can go to Wogified's mainpage, there is an full explain and arduino tutorial for the software control. and also his youtube tutorial:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2320443. so that I can upgrade my design with electric control. Thanks guys, your works are awosome. Further more I will go on for the slider to make it better!
and for the hardware upgrade, first insert two bearings to the pulleywheels(printed), and assemble it to the other side of the slider. Next step,stick the Belt_connector to the bottom of the platform which I published before(links:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2312487)(you can also see my pics). Next step, however assemble the stepper motor into the Stepper_Motor_Mount(printed) and also the 20 tooth pulley gear. Final step, connect all the GT2 timing belt, and test it with arduino.(forget,you need to stick one micro switch to one side of the rod mount so that the platform can be reached)
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
