Blinky: MakerFarm i3v

Blinky is a 3D printer donated by Troy in 2017. It is a MakerFarm i3v kit with the following modifications:

  • Lead screw Z axis
  • E3D v6Lite hotend (someday clone e3dv6)

It is configured for OctoPrint running on a Raspberry Pi. Details later.

Basic maintenance and preflight

The fan on the extruder should kick on at 50C. If it does not, touch the fan and give it a gentle spin widdershins (anticlockwise).
