Printer problems
« on: March 18, 2017, 01:07:02 PM »
Well, I've been having a nightmare of late trying to get my printer working to a half decent standard. It's more age related to be honest.. it's been printing for the last few months near enough all the time. Must of done about 10 rolls of filament.. lol

Anyway, before it fails completely I'm trying to design and print a new extruder holder with some new bearings. I've ordered a cheap new extruder / proximity sensor for self levelling.. Hoping all this will turn up next week so I can transfer everything over.

I'm sure I'm not the only one with printer troubles.. :-)

so.. its after midnight here, been designing and trying to get my printer to work all day.. and I think I've only gone and done it :-)

I'm still waiting for a new extruder / proximity sensor which I'm hoping to add.. but the new X carriage I've designed only goes and fits first time.. lol New bearings.. I know its not hardened rods and I shouldn't really use these type of bearings but.. hey its working :-)
