Smoothieware Update for MKS SBase v1.3

While updating my MKS SBase v1.3 to the latest smoothieware software I ran into a bit of a snag. Not a snag you’d find in the actual (recent) Smoothieboards, mind, but a snag that would only occur with the MKS SBase. As it turns out they’re shipping with a 2014 copy of the Smoothieware firmware. Even as late as 2016! Because of this it won’t read a Fat32 formatted SDcard. Instead...[Read More]

A small b...[Read More]

It gives you a weird and occasionally surreal ...[Read More]

Creating Mr. Beams Networked Lights Hacks

Mr. Beams produces an inexpensive line of autonomous outdoor lights. Coming in at 25$ each and 47$ or so for a pair they’re decent bang for your lighting buck. But what if you’re not satisfied with the product out of the box? What if you’d like to completely void any warranty provided with the product? Possibly break it horribly?
