March 2018 Update

To all my friends and customers, I wanted to say thanks for all the support and input everyone has provided. I promise that these notes will be few and infrequent. I wanted a way to get out information to everyone about all things

To my customers, thanks for recent purchases and great questions. There is a new support section available for everything related to the ATXPiHat. I have moved and updated the installation instructions and created a general support and FAQ sections. I will continually keep these up to date, and please let me know if there is anything that you think I should add.

I will be at the Midwest RepRap Festival – MRRF 2018 on March 24th, 2018. I will not have a table but will be walking around taking in the vendors and speakers. If for some reason, you cannot find me, please message me on Facebook or send me a note. I will do my best to find you. I will have ATXPiHat’s with me and will be selling them at a $5 discount and obviously no shipping. I will take cash or Paypal. The discount is to offset the cost of the online fees.

Going forward, if you want to Paypal me directly, I am willing to give a $5 discount. I cannot do anything about the shipping cost. It just covers my cost. As we do more of these I expect the cost to come down. Shipping is; $5 for the US, $12 for Canada and $16 for the EU and UK. Outside of these areas please get with me and I will have to figure out the cost. A lot has to do with the USPS. For a US purchase, $65 would take care of everything. We are looking for a distributor in the EU to help with the shipping cost. If you know someone that is willing to help a new comer, please let me know. They are still available on Tindie for purchase anytime.

I am working on the 1.0.6 version of the Octoprint plugin. It has several repairs for issues with detecting the correct voltage and amperage, as well as some performance improvements. I am also completing code to handle the switch via GCODE. There is an issue with the pigpio service not starting before Octoprint. I am testing a change to the plugin to stop loading and wait for it to be available. Current Octoprint users will get a notification when this is available.

If you need to get a hold of me for any reason, just use the contact form.

Please look out for new products. We have a few exciting things coming.

Warm regards,
