Since I’ve installed a dual extruder onto my printer, I’ve been constantly running into issues with motors skipping steps and generally having poorer quality of prints. I’ve noticed that the added weight makes the print head a lot more wobbly during moves. X-axis belts are as tight as they’ll get, the mounting screw is tight, and I’ve decreased the print speed to little avail.
What are some remedies people have taken if they too have noticed a decrease in print quality after upgrading to a dual extruder? As a side note, I’m thinking that a design with the second extruder mounted on the opposite side of the X-axis rod would be an improvement on the current design which has to resist a fair bit of cantilever torque.
