MLange is located outside Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and is currently ordering electronics and eagerly awaiting the Inventables Mechanical Kit.

Ordering parts in Canada

The best prices for ordering parts in Canada are mostly found by ordering from US suppliers and dealing with the tax and duty incurred from importing into Canada.

Upgrades Planned (in no particular order)

  • Emergency Stop Button
    • 1x PowerSwitch Tail II (I have the original PowerSwitch Tail)
    • 1x Red Pushbutton Switch (In the parts bins here somewhere, really)
  • Limit Switches
    • 4x Levered Microswitches (for X/Y)
  • User Interface (for use without attached computer)
    • 1x LCD Shield (DFRobot)
    • 1x SD Card Shield or similar (SEEED)
    • AND/OR 1x Bluetooth shield/module (SEEED) to stream wirelessly (and/or perhaps for remote progress monitoring?)
  • Arduino Enclosure
    • Acrylic(?) box with fan and filter for venting
    • Touch sensors under the acrylic to allow for UI use without letting shavings/particulate/etc in?
