3D PRINTER CONTROL BOARD PACKS A RASPBERRY PI COMPUTE MODULE 4

Traditionally, 3D printer control boards have used simplistic 8-bit microcontrollers to command the stepper drivers and ultimately move the machine where it needs to go. Newer boards have switched over to 32-bit microcontrollers, but they’re still relatively limited computationally. Because of this, a Raspberry Pi running OctoPrint is usually used to provide more complex features …

PI-BASED SPECTROMETER PUTS THE COMPLEXITY IN THE SOFTWARE

Play around with optics long enough and sooner or later you’re probably going to want a spectrometer. Optical instruments are famously expensive, though, at least for high-quality units. But a useful spectrometer, like this DIY Raspberry Pi-based instrument, doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank. This one comes to us by way of [Les Wright], whose homebrew …

MODIFIED 3D PRINTER MAKES A GREAT MICROSCOPE, TOO

Look past the melty plastic bits, and your average 3D printer is just a handy 3-axis Cartesian motion platform. This makes them useful for all kinds of things, and as [E/S Pronk] shows us, they can easily be modified into an automated polarimetric microscope! The microscope build actually took two forms. One, a regular digital microscope …

STILL GOT FILM TO SCAN? THIS LEGO AND RASPBERRY PI SCANNER IS FOR YOU

There was a time during the early years of mass digital photography, when a film scanner was a common sight. A small box usually connected to a USB port, it had a slot for slides or negatives. In 2020 they’re  a rare breed, but never fear! [Bezineb5] has a solution in the shape of an automated …
