Today starts yet another project for me. I think this makes 1800 eleventy-billion.
And I’m already stuck. When trying to open the Fusion360 file, Fusion opens up and says ‘the archive file is no longer available’. Then it gets stuck in a loop
EDIT: I have the file downloaded and modified. @azab2c linked me in his wonderful post, so now I guess I really do need to build this thing
I’m going with the following build:
300mm3 print size
300x300 mm 120v heatbed
SKR 1.2 w/ TMC2209 and TFT35
NOTE: I have not built a machine since the last MPCNC upgrade many years ago. I also haven’t modified my 3d printer in even longer. To say I’m a bit out of touch with CNC stuff is an understatement.
This build will not be quick.
I have a few reasons for this build over my current 3d printer
Larger build volume
Be able to print a wider range of materials
Future-proofing - My current build is using a RADDs board. Last I checked, the firmware I’m using is no longer really being updated. It’s been ages since I’ve tried to update the firmware and I’m afraid to touch it (house of cards). Also, any time I’ve tried to upgrade something on my current machine, I’ve had issues and have reverted back.
Cleaner/nicer build - The current machine has wires going everywhere. Next to no cable management
Are you downloading a new version from the link? He has made many updates lately…up to V58 now I think. I just opened it up on browser but didn’t try to download into fusion360. If that’s where you are getting held up I will sure try and see if it works on my end
I open the link to the CAD drawing in the browser. Then I click on the big orange button in the top right. A pop up comes up asking if it can load a helper script. I say ‘yes’. Fusion360 opens up and then a pop up comes up saying some-ting-wong.
Try hitting the download button next to the open in fusion. It will ask for your email address and email you a download link. Choose the fusion file. then open fusion and open the file there and it will load it and everything it needs in. That’s how i have been doing it anyways and its worked good for me.
