In this lesson we will learn how to print from the Arduino. Since you are often using the arduino to make reading from sensors or other devices that interact with the environment, you need an easy way to get that information out to the user. The easiest way to do this is to send it over a serial port to the IDE Serial Monitor. There, is can be easily read and watched by the user. In this lesson we show you how to configure the serial port, and send values from the Arduino. If you want to follow along at home, you can order the Arduino Kit we are using HERE.
When designing in Sketchup it is best practice to be mindful and deliberate about correctly setting dimensions when you create an object or sketch. This lesson shows you how you can go back and edit dimensions if needed.
In this lesson we use Sketchup to design a more complex 3D device. This box is not a simple extrusion, because the hinges are extruded along an orthogonal axis. Hence in this lesson we learn how to sketch and extrude in orthogonal planes in the same design. In the end the design worked very well, and we printed it both on the Prusa Mk2 I3 and the Raise3D N2 Plus. Prints were successful on both machine.
