RS232?

Hi mateys

I have MTX512 / ReMemorizer and MagROM (Not really used it yet, but will, honest, Dave!). I would like to add one or more serial ports to the machine for Kermit file transfer under CP/M. Anyone done this, or must I recreate the Memotech addon?

Cheers

Re: Case/Extension Cable?

I gave up on the idea of screwing the case to the MTX case. There's not enough clearance to get the screws in, and have the case wall and internal other features not getting in the way. So, I have redesigned it with printed in sides. One side on the base (the one with the expansion port slot), the o...

Another prototype.

The case has some new features - screw holes / tabs so that you can secure it to the MTX using the end panel screws, screw holes so you can secure the end panel to its outer side, and a cover for the expansion bay slot once it is secured to the case.

Re: Case/Extension Cable?

Right, another attempt, this time with the clips in the right orientation and a slot for the Memotech pin stripe & logo. Another try.JPG I'm printing a section of it to test for fit. Quick question - Should I build in locating tangs that fit into the inner slots on the MTX's case extrusion? It would...

Re: Case/Extension Cable?

Of course he has. :lol: Meanwhile, my top half of the case design has failed to print. I was soldering in front of the printer and the iron's cable got trapped under the print bed and jammed it, leading to some belt slippage (horrid noise). This means a Y shift and a failed print. Gah! On the other ...

Re: Case/Extension Cable?

You know me Mark, always happy to oblige..! Bottom case fitted.jpg Bottom case underside.jpg Bottom case rear.jpg I am printing the top cover at the moment. 8 hrs. So a couple of points - There's a layer shift halfway along the bottom case (printing artefact). It's not shifted the whole layer though...

Re: Case/Extension Cable?

It's not necessary - the case is a clip on now, and you can get to the SD card easily. Besides, how many times are you going to want to pull the card?

Re: Case/Extension Cable?

Well it's taking longer than anticipated but here we are.. Model so far.JPG The top half of the case is hidden so that you can see how the PCB is mounted. For access to the VGA and SD card slot I am thinking of separating the case and having the top half snap fit to the bottom, or hinged in some way...

Re: Case/Extension Cable?

I'm using TinkerCAD so it's a piece of cake. The MTX case's side profile is geometrically very simple so that definitely helps. I've only just got this 3D printer - it's a Creality CR6-SE from Kickstarter - so I've been on the lookout for useful things to do with it in between fiddling with Superbra...
