I have more suitable software for a job like that (which would have been much quicker too). But Powerpoint was the only program on my laptop that I could use.

No time at the moment to do it by myself but if someone makes a printable design out of bryces drawings, I'll test if it is possible with my printer.


If yes, I don't think, that a print will be expensive.

It's probably not suitable for printing. It has very tight tolerances and four of the surfaces need to be extremely smooth for it to work properly.

Cool, did you re-measure it yourself or make the model based on my drawing?

Cool, hast du es selbst gemessen oder hast du die Dimensionen von meiner Zeichnung genommen?

Self measured. Your drawing was not readable for me.  :laugh:
My counter was also resinous and stopped moving.The first print didn't work.
I will make new tests today and write the results here.

Selbst gemessen. Deine Zeichnung war für mich nicht lesbar.  :laugh:
Mein Zähler war außerdem verharzt und bewegte sich nicht mehr.
Der erste Druck hat aber nicht funktioniert. Ich werde heute neue Versuche machen und die Ergebnisse hier reinschreiben.

I've not heard back from my mate in the machine shop yet. He was saying something about sending it off to a 3d printing company (after he re-drew it).

I'm sure everyone can see just how bad my German is, but I just wanted to join in the fun. And no.. I didn't use google translate (thats possibly obvious to those who can actually read and write German and the fact that I didn't know the words to some of what I wrote in english)

Obviously not Google Translate, but a very good attempt and mostly understandable!

I'm still experimenting. I still lack the experience with the DLP printer.
You can influence the time by storing the parts differently in the slicer.
But this has a big effect on the accuracy of fit for such a small part.

###

Ich bin noch am experimentieren. Mir fehlen noch die Erfahrungen mit dem DLP-Drucker.
Man kann die Zeit beeinflussen, indem man die Teile im Slicer anders ablegt.
Das hat bei so einem kleinen Teil aber große Auswirkungen auf die Passgenauigkeit.

A new attempt with the new printer. After two failures it worked again.

I'm afraid the button is a little too narrow. Somehow there are missing approx. 2mm.  :o
But the function is given. I will get to the bottom of the problem tomorrow.

Fortunately I found another corner (red) where I could add some material so that the whole thing has a little more guidance and stability in the future.

Ein neuer Versuch mit dem neuen Drucker. Nach zwei Fehlschlägen hat es mal wieder geklappt.

Leider ist mir der Taster etwas zu schmal geraten. Irgendwie fehlen da ca. 2mm.  :o
Aber die Funktion ist gegeben. Dem Problem gehe ich morgen auf den Grund.

Zum Glück habe ich noch eine Ecke gefunden (rot) wo ich etwas Material hinzu geben konnte, damit das ganze in Zukunft etwas mehr Führung und Stabilität hat.

Cool looks like you could almost eat it. Now mount and LED under it so that it glows when the CPC is running or shows tape data activitity, that would be really cool!

Might be difficult because of the size of the button.
And when illuminating from below there is too little light at the top.

Dürfte schwierig werden wegen der größe des Tasters.
Und beim Beleuchten von unten kommt oben zu wenig Licht an.

After I had to find out that my additional corner only works when there are no gears in the counting drive,  I reworked the part today. Because in the CPC Wiki Forum the operator had asked for a lighting possibility,  I bought a glass file in the supermarket and filed an LED flat. Now you can also light up the reset button.  :laugh:

Normally the printed resin is green transparent.
But at 2.2V only red shines through.

All this will be available soon on Thingiverse.com for download.

###

Nachdem ich feststellen mußte das meine zusätzliche Ecke nur dann funktioniert wenn keine Zahnräder im Zähllaufwerk eingebaut sind,  habe ich heute das Teil nochmal nachgearbeitet. Weil im CPC Wiki Forum der Betreiber nach einer Beleuchtungsmöglichkeit gefragt hatte,  habe ich mir im Supermarkt ne Glasfeile gekauft und ne LED platt gefeilt. Jetzt kann man den Resettaster auch beleuchten.  :laugh:

Normalerweise ist das gedruckte Resin Grüntransparent.
Aber bei 2,2V scheint nur noch Rot durch.

Das alles gibt es demnächst auf Thingiverse.com zum runterladen.

@oobdoo

Thanks for all your work.
I really think that the Button that lights up was a Joke ( Perhaps) ?

All this will be available soon on Thingiverse.com for download.

That would be excellent

Thanks Ray

Very cool. My comment about having it illuminated was serious and it turned out great. :)
Btw: The voltage across the LED will always be the same, increasing the current (don't go above 20mA) should allow green to shine through. However, if the plastic is green, then you need to use a white LED, not a green one.

I needed the days to make more attempts to optimize the probe.
Now it seems to work.
The other parts I have also copied.
The very small round part is a replacement for the small spring which holds the three counting wheels in position.
Next I will test the roller in the cassette drive, which is driven by the belt.

###

Ich habe die Tage noch weitere Versuche gebraucht um den Taster zu optimieren.
Nun scheint es zu funktionieren.
Die anderen Teile habe ich auch nachgebaut.
Das ganz kleine runde Teil ist ein Ersatz für die kleine Feder, welche die die drei Zählrädchen auf Position hält.
Als nächstes werde ich die Rolle im Kassettenlaufwerk testen, welche vom Riemen angetrieben wird.

Are the files available for Printing (Reset Button)


Sind die Dateien zum Drucken verfügbar (Reset-Taste)?

I got a request if the reset button is already available.
Unfortunately no.  :(
If the transparent housing is added during assembly, then it is still stuck.
Therefore I have to do some more tests.
I will get back to you.
You can download it later at https://www.thingiverse.com/oobdoo/about

###

Ich bekam eine Anfrage ob der Resettaster schon verfügbar ist.
Leider nein.  :(
Wenn das transparente Gehäuse beim Zusammenbau hinzu kommt, dann klemmt es noch.
Daher muß ich noch einige Versuche durchführen.
Ich melde mich dann wieder.
