First Video – Electronics Test

Posted by ShadowRam April 27th, 2013

Here’s my first video.

This test was to ensure the Arduino micro-controlling was connecting and communicating correctly with my computer and that I was able to successfully download a program to it. I dounloaded the Ramps 1.4 test program, which basically just moves steppers back and forth and makes the LED lights blink.

I’ve also hooked up and tested an old computer power supply as a 12VDC source to power the stepper motors and heaters. I used the 4-pin video card source, as they are two +12VDC sources that are both capable of 15A a piece.

I’ve also connected the extruder stepper to each of the stepper motor drivers to ensure they were all working correctly.
