Glad to have you here!
Collaboration on syringe pump 3-D printer?[edit source]
I saw that you have recently written the page on the open-source syringe-pump 3D printer.
My colleagues and I (]) happen to be working on the same thing just now.
We have not yet started printing, but are still in the first steps of setting things up.
I just made and tested the bare pump by (electrically) connecting it to the Z-axis of our Prusa i3's RAMPS.
The difference to your set-up is that we eventually want to use the open-source Lulzbot.com "TAZ 4" as base for the 3D printer, so we need to make some changes to the print-head attachment.
The designs of the TAZ can be found on the Lulzbot repository, so it's easy to merge the pump with the TAZ's X-carriage.
I'd be more than happy, if we could collaborate in this project!
