How to power your OctoPrint Raspberry pi directly from your Printers power supply. (12V/24V)

We have provided a Hobbywing 5V 3A UBEC Step-Down Converter, this allows you to power your Raspberry Pi with no extra cables or plugs.
Simply connect the input side to the Power supply V+ (Red) and V- (black)
The output side will provide the 5V that the Raspberry Pi needs. Place the jumpers onto the 5V and GND pins of your Pi. (Pin 4 and 6)

Setup

For WiFi connection:
Option 1:

Before inserting the SD Card into your Raspberry Pi you need to find the “octopi-network.txt“ file on the SD card from and computer of laptop.
To add in your WiFi details open the file using a text editor, make sure you use a program such as Notepad++, Atom or VSCode as they don’t tend to mangle the file without first warning you. Avoid editing the file with other programs such as WordPad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac OSX) as they will enforce their encodings on the file making it fail to work.

Once you have the file open in the editor of your choosing
Find

## WPA/WPA2 secured
#iface wlan0-octopi inet manual
#    wpa-ssid "put SSID here"
#    wpa-psk "put password here"
Replace With

## WPA/WPA2 secured
iface wlan0-octopi inet manual
    wpa-ssid "put SSID here"
    wpa-psk "put password here"
    
That's it, now you can save your changes and insert the card into your pi.

Option 2:

You can insert the SD Card into your Raspberry Pi with a monitor, keyboard and a mouse and set you wifi up manually as seen here.
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/wireless-cli.md

If you will be using a LAN connection, this will not be necessary.

Now you can connect to your printer by visiting http://octopi.local

Great plugins to look at:
Cura plugin for octopi: The plugin is distributed via the "Toolbox" in Cura 3.4, or "Marketplace" in Cura 3.6.

Learning to solder LED kit Pack of 25 (1B6 KT begin solder bundle)
Product Description

Our learn to solder pack is the ideal low cost solution for teaching soldering in the classroom/after school club. The pack provides all of the parts and PCB's required for a class size of 25 and also includes a 9V battery for testing purposes. Each pack comprises; 25 x PCBs, 100 x 100 ohm resistors, 25 x LED's, and a 9V PP3 battery.

We have also produced a step by step guide to soldering, which covers; equipment, solder, tinning & cleaning, soldering in 8 steps, de-soldering in five steps, wire preparation, examples of good and bad solder joints, basic PCB repair, resistor information, LED information, full step by step build information for the kit, and how the learn to solder kit works. This guide covers everything that you might need to discuss with students and can form the basis of your lesson plan.

Using the kits and the step by step guide, each student will solder four resistors and one LED to their PCB before pressing it to the terminals of the 9V battery to check that their board works. Using the guides they will be able to examine their own work and troubleshoot problems. The battery pads on the PCBs have been shaped inline with the battery terminals on a PP3 battery making it straightforward to see which way around it should be placed on the battery.

Features:

  • Purpose built PCBs that can be tested, once built, with the supplied 9V PP3 battery.

---

Welcome to the world of electronics. This kit is for a 555 a-stable multi vibrator. Or flip-flop for short.
The 555 timer ic has been a popular part of electronics since 1972 and it is still going strong today!

Read and understand the instructions first before you start soldering!

It is important for you to first identify the components and familiarize yourself with the printed circuit board (PCB) before you start to solder. Some components must only be installed in a certain way, and will not work if installed the wrong way around. These components are called “polarized” and care should be taken with their orientation.

What you will need(not included in this kit)

Your soldering gear.
A 9V battery to power your project.

And now for the good stuff....

1. The PCB





The pcb is the component that all the other components will be soldered to. It creates the frame for the project.
The components must be inserted from the side with the component values printed on it.
The printing is called silkscreen and it will also show you the correct placement of parts.

2. Resistors


Resistors can be installed in any orientation. Resistors have different values that are represented by colour bands. The colours are read from left to right with the silver or gold band to the right. Identify the resistors and place them in the pcb as shown by the silkscreen by bending the leads and
pressing the resistors flush with the pcb.

R1 = Brown, black, red, gold. = 1 k Ω
R2 = Brown, black, orange, gold. = 10 k Ω
R3, R4 = Yellow, violet, brown, gold. = 470 Ω ( * 2)

3 Integrated circuit (ic):



The ic is the heart of the circuit. Note that the ic has a little indentation or notch on one side; this shows the orientation of how the ic should be inserted into the pcb. Line the notch on the ic up with the notch on the silkscreen marked 555. You might have
to bend the legs of the ic slightly inwards in order to have them fit.

4 Light emitting diodes (LED):



The LED’s will be the eyes of our ghost. Care should be taken with their orientation as they are polarized. LED’s have two ways of showing us the polarization, a “cut out” in the LED and a difference in leg lengths. If a LED is placed the wrong way it
will simply not light up. Insert the LED’s with the cut out and short leg pointing towards the 555 ic into the eyes of the ghost.

5 Capacitor:


A capacitor is also polarized. When a capacitor is placed in the wrong orientation it might explode! There are also two ways we are shown the polarization: a white line on the side and a shorter leg. This is negative. The silkscreen on the pcb shows a positive and a white block. Make sure the shorter leg, close to the stripe on the capacitor, goes into the hole with the white block and the
long leg goes into the hole marked + in position C1.

6 Power:



Connect the red wire in position “PWR +” and the black wire in position “PWR –“ and you are all done!

Schematic:


Tips and tricks:


a) Solder the components in the order they were described to you, the “lowest” component to the “highest” component. This will help keep them in place. b) Bend the leads of the components “outwards” a bit, in order to help hold them in place.
c) Wipe the tip of the iron on a wet sponge every time you take it to solder.
d) Place the tip of the iron on the pad of the pcb against the component lead, wait half a second and then add the solder wire.
e) Do not add too much solder wire at a time, feed the wire slowly till you see the pad has enough solder

Soldering irons are hot so be very careful!

Tracking Robot Car Electronic DIY Kit With Reduction Motor (DIY track robot kit)


Tracking Robot Car Electronic DIY Kit With Reduction Motor





The assembly steps:


Step 1: Welding circuit

Soldering part is simpler, welding sequence according to the principle of component level from low to high, the first welding eight resistance, is important to use multimeter to confirm resistance is correct, D4, D5 R13 R14 can temporarily not welding, integrated circuit chips can temporarily not inserted

Step 2: Mechanical assembly

The red line is connected to the 3V positive power supply, the yellow line grounding, excess wire can be used for motor wire.

Step 3: The installation of a photoelectric circuit

Photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes (note polarity) is reverse-mounted on the PCB, and the ground distance is about 5 mm, both photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes are 5 mm distance. Finally, you can power test.

Step 4: Vehicle debugging

The right direction is along the universal wheel direction, if you press and hold the left photoresistor, the wheels on the right side of the car should be rotated. Press and hold the right photoresistor, the wheels on the left side of the car should be rotated, if the car driving back, can also exchange the wiring of two motors, if the one side normal and the other side back up, as long as you can swap wiring of back side.

Note: We don't supply any manuals please note this before you buy it.

Package includes:

1 x Electronic DIY Kit (batteries are not included)
