I’m trying to combine an inkjet with a 3D printer to prototype a new kind 3D printer.
I have built several 3D printers over the years. I’ve also just recently built the opendtg.com tshirt printer and then began to modify that. As I imagine things, this can be applied to DIY inkjet-based UV material jetting, powder-based binder jetting, t-shirts and UV resin printing onto things.
I cannot proceed with opendtg code and board. What I need is the 3D printer z-axis feature and to suppress the x axis. I want the 3d printer y axis to be slaved to the inkjet.
The opendtg code already intercepts the inkjet encoder. As I need full 3D printer features, I believe I only need to wire the encoder somewhere on the RAMPS shield. I then need to know where to change the Marlin code.
I am willing to pay someone to guide me or to do this, but I don’t know where to post so I get relevant replies, except here, of course.
