I like the watercooling loop that's actually not cooling anything.
The cooling system is for the hot stepper motor, inside case now the temperature is more less.
Looks like it's built to last though, not like a lot of computers out there.
Or castles for that matter.
Those things do get stupid hot, mostly because the coils are on the outside against the walls of the motor casing, instead of inside, with the magnets on the outside.
Why not power down the stepper coils when it's not in use? maybe use a microcontroller to put the driver into sleep mode if the motor's not used for a couple of minutes.
My stepper motor is controlled by Arduino, I saw the technic schedule of motor and it work at 75°C., isn't impossible clear the power.....
And now the definitive photogallery.......
Comin soon a video.......
Thank you so much......
The function Release() should release the current to the stepper coils when the stepper's not being used.
I found this forum thread on the Adafruit site. Hope it's what you need?
Thak you very much for your info, i think will have need it.
Glad to help There's loads of info on the adafruit forum about the arduino and the motor shield.
wow it's HUGE!
It's really impressive.
You, Sir, are freaking MENTAL!
+rep for epic build
Wow,I love this project! Excellent imagination and skill.
Impressive model building skills
Good idea with the bridge
thats insane.... just... insane.
first page was "meh", then second page "oh wow", third is "WTF??" and it just keep goin up exponentially from there LOL
very good job!!!
The video of the end project.........
VIDEO: Project Mod "CASTLE LORD OF THE RINGS"
Look Dad... I built a castle and hid your computer inside it!!!!
Amazing work of art there my friend... This was truly an exercise in perfection.
3 years, countless hours, money, and those last pictures make show it was worth it.
Truly a piece of art
25th Nov 2007 to 24th Sep 2010 Phenomenal themed mod, awesome example of what can be done with skill & patience .
The close up pictures are excellent .
Very very well done DEFCON, a true masterpiece congratulations on getting it finished +rep .
