Overview

We were donated a 3D wax printer, BPM Personal Modeler 2100 by Scott Savage of Savage Innovations. This page is a clearinghouse to hold knowledge about this printer as we dig it up and notes/coordination of the repair effort.

Known Issues

  • Wax not streaming out of head when printing. Will flush the wax, but not print with it.

Equipment Details

  • Included computer runs DOS, and the software that operates the machine runs on DOS
  • The motor control boards interface with a custom ISA controller in the machine

People

  • Lead Hackers (Contact before futzing with the hardware or software)
    • Justin(Ratmandu)
    • Tim(crashcartpro)
  • Researchers
    • Mog
    • Strages
    • Bob
