Arduino with Gen 6 board
August 23, 2011 02:33PM

I am working on a 3D printer (Mendel) having a Generation 6 electronics board. The printer has been assembled but I want to incorporate a powder dispenser to the printer and print using it. I have connected Arduino with Gen 6 and can communicate via I2C.

The dispenser needs 1 digital and 1 analogue signal to run. The digital signal has (as you all know) two states i.e., 0 and 1.
I need help in sending a signal from the Gen 6 board to the Arduino to turn the dispenser ON and OFF. So when there is 1 on the output, the dispenser is dispensing and when there is 0, it is not.

Is it possible to send a signal when the motor of the extruder starts or something, any signal that can be used to turn the dispenser ON and OFFconfused smiley

Any suggestions !!!
