I’m having some issues with everything being more.. wobbly then I’d like. I’m thinking about adding supports like this, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1730371 Does anyone have any luck with this or should I just lower the whole thing?
If you’re not planning using all of that z height then your best bet is to lower it. You’d have a hell of a time finding end mills long enough to use all of that Z travel. What are you planning on using the machine for?April 16, 2019 at 8:40 pm #97300
You might want to shorten the legs and look into Drop Tables.

I have a few large 3d prints I need to make so I think I’ll go the route of the drop tableApril 17, 2019 at 4:41 am #97330
They’ll help, once you start using it for milling, lower it.April 17, 2019 at 8:32 am #97363
You built it extremely tall, those supports will help the frame but won;t do anything for the Z axis. 3 inches is rock solid it goes downhill quickly from there.April 22, 2019 at 6:53 am #97746
An update: I lowered the legs and using a cheap generic Dremel for now and it seems to be working. The tool has way too much play in the bit but for now I’m happy with the results.
