Made this numpad in order to learn more about the process of hand wiring and flashing an arduino pro micro it runs the QMK firmware has a bit of RGB and was 3d printed and finished to look as good as I could manage.
While the CR10 is an older printer it is important that the source code is available for several reasons, the main one being that it is part of the GPL terms. Another reason is that it allows for much easier modding of the printers which should allow them to be upgraded into the future.
It is a professional, enclosed 3D printer and is being targeted as an alternative to industrial systems. It is also allegedly up to 2 times faster than other systems.
It is still an FDM system and appears to use enclosed spools which also appear to be proprietary as they are calling them 'smart spools'.It also appears to be using proprietary software. It has 21 sensors on board including filament sensors and enclosure sensors.
