Coordinating MakerGear motion with a dispensing pump
Posted: Thu Oct 17, 2019 3:53 pm
Hello, right now I am working on producing python code that would enable me to coordinate the motion of the MakerGear printer with an Ultimus V dispensing pump (https://www.nordson.com/en/divisions/ef ... -dispenser). It is my understanding that the printer can communicate directly with the dispensing pump and that I can use my pumps communication code to talk to the printer. However, I am kind of at a loss of how to accomplish this task. To complicate things, I also want the pressure/feed rate to be able to be changed based on the response of an external sensor (flow meter) in real time. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post about this, but I have also reached out to the company the makes the dispensing pump about this predicament. I was hoping someone had some experience with a similar idea.
