As others have mentioned, the software is not quite mature yet. Also, do remember to do a firmware upgrade first, to avoid the arm dragging itself across the desktop like something from a sci-fi horror movie, as it repositions itself. On the other hand, that was part of the fun too.
Having upgraded, and after 'messing about with' the settings for a while, I have been mostly using the laser head. And what brilliant results! Clear, clean, crisp, and above all, highly repeatable. The arm is quiet, and easy to set up (I admit some trepidation about going near it with the laser on to adjust the focus, but I've only had to do that once, and it is on low power at the time).
I haven't got round to giving it it's own dedicated workspace yet, but balanced on top of an old computer case, doing pyrographic wonders on slices of tree branch or etching in to the computer case (OK, that was an error and entirely my fault, but it does make me want to experiment further) and cutting paper and cardboard templates it has been filling me with a level of glee I seldom get from my gadget habit.
I'll be making bespoke Christmas presents for the family, and using it to design props for tabletop gaming once I get the "official workspace" set up.
It may have taken a while (thanks Covid!) to get it, but honestly, it was worth the wait.
I love my DexArm. Got some great results printing 3D and lasering.
Some R&D of your own is required but that's half the fun.
Only 2 things that I would like to remark:
1) the thermal runaway protection is actually present in the firmware but it's turned off by default (THERMAL_PROTECTION set to 0) and you, as a user, can't change that. This is quite a serious concern and I have no idea why it would be turned off.
2) because the mdule is a robotic arm, the work space can be doubled by elevating the print bed.
I made 4 studs with slots to hold the print bed at 4 defined heights (0, 25, 50 and 68 mm). When you print at a 68 mm height, your bed size is 210x210 cm with a printable height of 100 mm (compared to 130x150x200 mm at 0 mm height). This is incredably useful information that is omitted in the manual. If you're a little creative, you can even set-up 3 print beds around the printer and do multiple prints one after the other.
Rotrics studio works good but at this time there is other software out there that can do the job better (especially for 3D printing). Given that this was a Kickstarter, I'm absolutely certain that this will improve massively over the comming months (The last updates already show a lot of progress). But again, with some personal R&D it's amazing what high quality results you can get from this machine!
It's also very quite. Only the fans to cool the 3d printing head make some noice and even that is very limited.
It’s elegant, well designed, perfect selection of materials and precise. Super quiet! As the title of current review is telling - sofware is not as mature, but as new versions keep going, then it is just matter of time. There are other applications which can be used to complement Rotrix Studio (e.g. Inkscpe), but again - quality and fidelity of interfaces is lagging too. The most important thing is excellent platform, which is ultimate promise for good software eventually, we just have to keep giving a feedback and send suggestions to developers :)
As a finishing aspect looks very good , accuracy very good, very quiet, ease to remove the heads, the product was very well packed in the box it is a great idea to have everything in one. As a Software, Firmware it is Beta a long way for the very good versions-good luck.
Technically spiking: Stepper motor drivers are very quiet, do not over heating it is good for Australia in hot seasons. Head connector is very easier and fast to replace the heads. Black and white colours is combinations what I do like.It is a multi versatile Robot Arm on the market, As a marketing product my suggestion is to start first Kit Robot Art + Cup Holder=$500/Kit, and then more options for every one to choose accessories what they want.
My suggestions: 1. Plastic material parts are now very easy cracking, can you relapse quality of plastic material please, like with fibre in maybe that could help.
Maybe Switch Limits for X,Y,Z (minim/ maxim) can help more for software to
setup. Extra USB C port at the back may help to avoid Y USB cable. At the head my suggestion is to have more possibility for connections like one USB C, one Stepper motor connector, one Actuator connector and on and on, for the Laser Driver please increase current up to Amps=1.5A-12V, what is normal now on the market. More suggestion are above to come.
Thank you very much for you effort in this project- congratulation!
The Rotics Arm is quite neat, clean, precise and silent. I am new on 3d printing and had no troubles installing and having my first print.
I love the arm case, it makes easy and safe when transporting the product. It would be nice if you can see the preview after loading a gcode before the print but I am satisfied with the product overall.
