3D Printer Reprep Code Improvement

This Saturday 5th of October from 2pm-6pm TOG is holding a 3D Printer
Arduino code improvement day.

3D printers are all the rage at the moment. However they are not
without their faults and some of the budget, hobbiest models could do
with an improvement or two.

The aim of the afternoon will be to improve the Reprap code to add
extra features.
The stand alone reprap uses an Arduino based stand controller to print
without needing a computer connected.

A second project would be to add bluetooth wireless operation.

The controller being used is:

The display is:

and the code is:

Whoever works on the project will be given access to a working Reprap
with all the hardware for testing the setup. There may be a budget for
the time involved if working on the code after the first day. The main
plan for the day is to specify what changes need to be made.

No need to book, just show up. Anyone with an interest in 3D printing
is welcome. While the event is free we will be asking for donations to
cover the hosting costs.
