3D Printer Extruder Controller

This board controls all of the functions of the extruder. Features of this controller include: monitoring the temperature of the hot end, heating the hot end, providing current to a heated table, fan control, and communicates to and from the 3D Printer main board and Arduino Mega pair.


This extruder controller has connections for a heater, thermister or thermocouple (for sensing the hot end temperature), an RJ-45 to connect to the 3D Main Board, 12 volt terminal, fan connection and an extra terminal for other purposes.

I came across a rather interesting idea while checking out Disney's Research Hub: Printed Optics. They seem to be quite interested in fabrication and 3D printing as a good majority of their videos pertain to this type of subject matter. More interestingly, they have devised a way to print objects that embed optical characteristics so that light traverses where they intend to create some very interesting effects.

Two recent developments are getting us very close to printing electronics, one using inkjet printers to print conductive material for electronics and photonics and another, a conductive ink to create flexible electronics for books, displays and wearables.
