So far we have 3 Creality printers. One of them is mine, two are @ajlennon's.

together they are:
alex-ender3
matt-ender3
alex-cr10s

Their Marlin firmware configuration will be version controlled here:
https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/marlinconfigs

Their configuration binaries will be posted here:
https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/marlinconfigs/releases

Each device will have its own wiki page, but there will be a central hub with which to access all 3dprinter related information at:
https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/somebody-should/wiki/3dprinters

I will be using wiki content from https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/somebody-should/wiki/Creality-CR-10S-3D-Printer, after which I will rename that wiki page to alex-cr10s to fit with its device name. This will be linked to in aforementioned wiki/3dprinters/ overview which will direct users towards this location.

I've looked closer at the Wiki structure. I see that under Equipment there is a section written in text as so:

3D printers:

  • [[Ultimaker]] - most widely supported printer
  • [[UpCycled]] - Formerly the [[Up3dPrinter]], but with new electronics.
  • [[MakerbotCupCake]] - more of a museum piece these days
  • [[RepRapPrusaMendel]] - quite old but good quality prints and Ming has recently added a Pi to control it. Might be good with flexible filaments
  • Consumables: [[Materials: 3D Printer Filament]]

There is no problem with this, and this is exactly what I want to recreate, but with the added benefit of being searchable from the side bar.

This is how a lot of people I've noticed on Maker Night use the wiki if they do at all:

  1. Navigate to https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/somebody-should/wiki
  2. Read nothing and begin to search through the "pages" side bar on the right for what they want
  3. Do not know what specifically to refer to, so search generically for "printer"
  4. Only see some of what is available
    image

My flow would keep things the same and allow people to search for "3d" or "printer" and end up in a disambiguation/overview. I will hyperlink to the 3dprinter overview/disambiguation inside of wiki/Equipment as follows:

3D printers:

  • [[Ultimaker]] - most widely supported printer
  • [[UpCycled]] - Formerly the [[Up3dPrinter]], but with new electronics.
  • [[MakerbotCupCake]] - more of a museum piece these days
  • [[RepRapPrusaMendel]] - quite old but good quality prints and Ming has recently added a Pi to control it. Might be good with flexible filaments
  • Consumables: [[Materials: 3D Printer Filament]]

Except in the case of the wiki document, I will make use of the wiki referencing github markdown feature that allows usage of [] instead of actually embedding a URL.
