Electronics

Electronics used in the modular Construction Printer Prototypes:

  • 7 Electromotors
  • 1 Extruder
  • 1 Electronic Box connected to the printer by 1 cable

Electronic Box in Numbers:

  • 2 Arduino Uno's
  • 3 Arduino Shields
  • 2 Power Supplies
  • 2 manual Emergency Switches
  • 1 Data Output to the Printer


To control the movements of the motors, we first used the Open Source Software G-Code Sender with GRBL, however we are working on it to improve the control software.
