Replicape is a 3D printer cape for BeagleBone.
- 5 stepper motors (Trinamic TMC2100) (X, Y, Z, E, H)
- 3 high power MOSFETs (PWM controlled) for 2 extruders and 1 HPB. (12..24V)
- 4 medium power MOSFETs (PWM controlled) for up to 4 fans/LED strips. (12V)
- 3 analog input ports for thermistors. noise-filtered inputs and option for shielding
- 6 inputs for end stops (X, Y, Z).
- 1 bus for Dallas 1W temperature sensor for monitoring the cold end. Up to 10 sensors can be added to the bus.
- 2 servo outputs.
- 1 inductive sensor input.
- Programmable current limits on steppers motor drivers (SMD). No need to manually adjust a pot meter.
- Microstepping individually programmable for each SMD from 1 to 256.
- All steppers are controlled by the Programmable Realtime Unit (PRU) for hard real time operation.
- Compatible with Manga Screen
- Single 12 to 24V PSU, fans are still 12V.
- Compatible with BeagleBone and BeagleBone Black (probably also green and blue).
- Open source hardware and software. (CC BY-SA)
- Software written in Python for maintainability and hackability.
This is the repository for the hardware, the "firmware" (Redeem) has a separate repository
What is in here?
- This repository contains the files needed to reproduce the PCB and continue development.
- The latest revision is B3
I want one! How much is it, and where can I get it?
It's $99 and you can buy it in the store
I want to build my own board. How do I do that?
- Download the BOM and order the parts from Digi-key
- Send the GERBER files to a PCB manufacturer
- Get a reflow oven
- Populate the board
I want a different version of this, who do I talk to?
Talk to Elias <elias at iagent dot no>
I have a Replicape, how do I wire it?
