Custom BBQ wifi controller

Post by theboz1419 » Mon Jan 16, 2017 1:45 pm

The reason why I decided to buy an 3d printer, was to be able to print cases and dampers for people I build BBQ controllers for. I did not want to continue to rely on others to print them and my quality is much much better with the M2.

Here is the latest controller I built for a customer whom wanted me to print him a case using the Georgia Tech colors of Black and Yellow. I said, since I already sold one to his brother, I would try to make his a little different. This was my first attempt at modifying .stl files in Meshmixer. I still have alot to learn. But, I'm happy the way it turned out.

The yellow disk with the GT Buzz logo on it was printed with a .35 nozzle I had the width at .2mm and the height at .1mm. Reason being the logo was to small to print with the standard settings. It's turned out pretty good, and is fairly strong. It took over 2 hours to print just that peice. Everything else is printed at the standard printing defaults.

On the back of the case, I wanted to add a small diode, so that the Buzz logo would standout some, but it did not work out the way I wanted.

If you hook it up to any charcoal or electric(ssr) smoker it will control the temperature within a few degrees, which all controlled via Internet or on the unit itself. It's called an Heatermeter, and is freely available build if one has the knowledge to solder. I have been building and customizing them for almost 5 years for people all over the world. If set correctly it will have better temperature control then a oven.

Thanks everybody.

I never thought that when I started getting into smoking foods it would lead me into electronics and finally into 3d printing.
