Day 2: Mood Lighting for my Thing-o-matic!

So after installing some custom firmware from Jetty I can now use my 3d printer stand alone with the use of the Gen4 Interface, except for slicing up the 3d file(s) I want to print.  It has support for RGB led’s that indicate the temperature of the extruder. Is also does some other neat tricks accessible from the lighting menu.

You can read more about this hack I did here. It uses the BlinkM MaxM module.

I will add a video of this in action so check back!

It also has buzzer support but that is for another day. :)
