MachineInfoBox

Example: 3D Printer

Prusa i3 MK2S.JPG
Type: CNC (additive manufacturing)
Material: 1.75 mm filament
Location: 3D printer farm
Access Requirements:
Status: working
Firmware: Marlin
Software: Cura
Tutors:


We call pretty much all electric devices and big or small power tools "machines" in this wiki. Their pages should contain this InfoBox!

Documentation

To use this template, simply copy this code into your page and enter the relevant parameters:

{{MachineInfoBox
|machine name=
|german=
|image=
|synonyms=
|type=
|material=
|location=
|status=
|firmware=
|software=
|manual=
|used with=
|similar=
}}

Most fields will only be shown when used, so the box can be more or less detailed. Make frequent use of the "Show preview" button and it should be clear.

For example, entering the following leads to the box on the right:

{{MachineInfoBox
|machine name= Example: 3D Printer
|german=3D-Drucker
|image=Prusa i3 MK2S.JPG
|status=working
|type=[[CNC]] (additive manufacturing)
|location=[[3D Printer Farm|3D printer farm]]
|material=[[3D Printing Materials|1.75 mm filament]]
|used with=
|firmware=[[Marlin]]
|software=[[Cura]]
|manual=
|similar=
}}

Advanced Users (SMW)

There is a "hidden" parameter in this template that's not in the copy template: extrabox. To enable extrabox, just give it any value (e.g. "true", "blablabla") and it should cause the box to behave as an extra without "Has image::".

You can use it when you don't want the InfoBox to set a "Has image::" and "Has German::" value (as it automatically does for "image" and "german"). That's useful on pretty much every page with multiple InfoBoxes so there is just one "main" image to represent the page in galleries.

"Access" and "Tutors" should automatically gather their content from the SMW property "Introduction for::" since January 2022.

Questions, feedback and further improvements are welcome!

Bugs/Future Development

  • "smart" behavior like color change according to status would be nice

The status of the machinestatus

The status of the machine - link the corresponding "do-something" issue in case of problems!

Example
