So im in the process of building this little printer.
so far i have to say im impressed
the next comment has to be taken from a machine builders perspective.
yes i new to 3D printing but i have been building CNC for about 10 years.
So when in the instructions it says lock down the bar on the platform so there is no movement on the platform and i can’t for the life of me get that to where i’m happy i have to ask what the tolerance is on “lock down the bar”?
from what i can see the very small amount of movement is coming from the bearing housing at the front. the bearing was held in with a collor with two grub screws. But there seems to be axial play in the bearing and housing.
Yes i can fix it with a shim. i just didn’t expect to have too.
there also seems to be a lot of play in the connector from the GM(?) tilt motor. that connects to the GM shaft. is that normal. on my printer it looks like it was hacked sawed.
i would prefer the whole assembly to have a little more adjustability on the platform rod. my issue above not withstanding
is there a published tolerance for the play in the platform bar(shaft)?
i will clock it tomorrow to find out how much play is in there.
Im also going to order some right angled frame stiffeners 32 in total.
i want the nest prints i can get from this rig. set up is all.
