Looking good Tony you got any pics for us of the wee beastie
I can put it back if its crap I have it all backed up and ready to restore if people prefer it the old way
Whats it looking like from a mobile ?
well that was a quick fix
Its work in progress
I'm testing smf 2.1 so the forums gonna look a bit different if we have to go back then we will loose any new posts made in this version, its a bit basic and may take some getting used to but it has a like button
Ive ordered some of these https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Poly-Carbonate-Strong-Solid-V-wheel-Assy-for-Openbuilds-V-Slot-rail-OX-CNC-V-Slot/32803307599.html?spm=a2g0s.9042318.104.22.1680c4c4dWZPb49
they look like good quality ones I hope
They are cheap nasty wheels with a single bearing prob gonna end up getting some better ones with dual bearings
I split a print to convert it for dual colour and Cura saw no problem with it but, slic3rPE said each part had 1000s of errors and fixed them the print didnt look any different
Thats weird coz I ended my prime membership a 99p trial and ordered some last night
they often offer a 99p trial and I always take it then order anything I need with really quick free delivery
When I was a prime member it was £12.99
I'm pretty sure the Z wobble is caused by dodgy V rollers like in this picture moving the Z axis by hand it has very tight spots and then loose
Done a few prints with this now and it has become apparent there is a problem with the Z carriage prints have some awful lines (Z wobble), I have removed the lead screw and done the roll test to see if its bent and that looks fine but what I have found is when moving the Z axis up and down by hand it has some very tight spots,
which leads me to the conclusion that the V rollers are eccentric and poor quality, I have emailed geetech uk about this and the hollow in the bed and, asked what they intend to do about it, I also mentioned that if nothing was done it would be returned as a faulty product not fit for its purpose, they advertise the glass beds as very flat and very accurate mine certainly is not the first layer is not even
I will update this post when I hear from them it could be a nice printer but its let down by quality control who ever built it should of spotted the roller problem and corrected it, the bed isnt that bad and once I get a probe it wouldnt be a problem but its still not as advertised.
