Morgan’s Chinese family

Ryan Altair had to make do with what is available to him, and made a plan!

This morning on the forums:

She prints,the Morgan in Asia prints!!
Even this Morgan is not a original Morgan,sorry that I have to go to school before Aug.29, and my Mendel can’t print something big like the drivewheel. Without other choice, sorry that I have to make some change,after all ,it prints! And I sure, SCARA Morgan deserves the name,Hunt Morgan.it’s the best Reprap machine I ever seen!
Thanks everyone in this builders forum,especially Mr.Quentin. Without your help I can’t make it to this step!
If there is anything I can help,I am on my way to be a volunteer.
Thanks again!

Ryan

Morgan Ultimate?

Wim de Groot is at it again…

Morgan Ultimate Morgan Ultimate arms Morgan Ultimate drives

Wim writes:

I had access to another Ultimaker kit and applied that with the available Morgan parts from the first trial set-up.
I used the Ultimaker platform ( =more stable but mounted up side down to get the platform higher) , and with M8 thread and nut as in your design.
I used the Ultimaker extruderfeeder, electronics and motors.
I designed and built a hotend for the Morgan arm.

We now are struggling with positioning the end stops, the firmware and the calibration.
I have got a friend to do that for me as I am more a mechanical guy.
Where and how did you place the Hall sensors?

We let you know when the printer works.

Problems so far:
The standard Ultimaker print surface dimensions are too small for the full use of the Morgan arms.
Home position as you sent me in a picture can not be attained/applied.
We need to find a way to mount two homing switches (Hall type) for the arms.

Morgan arm calibration guide

I have shot some video, showing the Pronterface console and the machine, but for some reason I have trouble with the sound of it.  I may have to narrate the whole thing….

In the mean time I have drawn up a flowchart that sums up the whole video.

Morgan Cal flowchart  (corrected version… Thanks Fig)

Please feel free to ask questions if anything is unclear.  This flowchart works great for me.
