Ok, I have not had to print anything in a little while - I appreciate all the help on my last post with larger ABS prints. Calibrations, turning the fan off, and hot boxing it have helped. Though my temp hotbox solution has been moving the Taz into a small bathroom and closing the door. Now I don’t have to listen to it either. So its a start.
I just started printing a bunch of stuff again and am noticing that the starts and stops of my outer shell of prints are either over or under extruding maybe? This is happening on ABS and PLA.
I am also noticing that when the bed moves to a certain point on the outer edge of Y movement it starts to vibrate or flutter - I can see the resulting vibes on the printed parts in that area too. Maybe there is something wrong with the belt or bearings in this area. But this is not happening in the area of my stops and starts where the picture is taken.
I think there maybe something up with my change in direction possibly having a little backlash. But I’ll need to run a test part to see.
Piercet - I am going to eventually do the rail conversions - Being a machinist - this is really frustrating that after spending $2k this thing still needs to be modified for the simplest of things, deflection, crappy bearings with slop in them etc. sigghhh.
