I don’t think my conduit is wearing out. Not all the bearings lost contact, just a couple but enough to make it wobble if that makes sense.
After I tightened all the screws things seem good again but I had to put some force to it. Don’t think it can go any further without breaking something.
When I first put things together it went in fine and it…[Read more]
Been working with the new center for over a week now and the only issue I have had is that the center became looser after a couple days of use.
I had to tighten all the bolts to get the bearings to touch the pipe again. I don’t think it will go any tighter so I might reprint it at 99.5% in the future.
After this everything has been fine. Been…[Read more]
Did some more cutting and drilling today and after some checks I noticed some movement in the center part because a bunch of the bearings were no longer touching the conduit. After tightning all the bolts, including the center bolt, it seems snug again.
I don’t think it can get any tighter in the future so I might reprint this at…[Read more]
If you guys are using PETG for the reason that parts are breaking, you don’t have to on the new design imo.
I was using PETG for my DW660 mount and some other small pieces. The new design is much better/stronger as long as you use 3 perimeters.
Hope you can find something as I am lost why the DRV8825’s are not working. The odd thing is that the Z axis is fine and it’s only affecting X and Y.
I looked at the time setting to release the steppers which is default set to 60. I tried higher and 0 to disable it all together. No change.
The settings in the config is the same between using the…[Read more]
I think it is significantly better yes. This is a setup I can use on hard wood. The movement and twist on all axis is so much less. The original parts are going in the bin and I am sticking with this. Plus the new mount is so much better. I did not have to make any adjustments.
Did you see my issue on the drv8825? Any ideas why it’s behaving like that?
lol, takes forever. But it will be worth it!
I ran into a new issue myself that explains some of the behavior I have been experiencing. Apparently my drv8825 drivers are not holding torque in between some movements. I tested by replacing them with a4988’s and they work without any problem. They lock when there is no movement.
Has anyone…[Read more]
She is up and running.
Setup is square without any adjustments. Time to relax for a bit. Will try to get some tests done tomorrow.
I really like the new mount design. There is no question if the mount is in the right place and I was able to tighten the screws without being afraid I would break something.
Yea, the picture does not make it very clear as I did not raise the lower mount all the way up to touch the coupler.
So impressed how much difference this setup is. You have done a fantastic job. This feels very solid!
Perfect timing! Was just about to start the last 3 small pieces and now I added this for an over night print 🙂
Have to pick up the bolts tomorrow and will start the assembly. Excited to give this a try, these parts feel very solid!
Print time for all parts including tool mount will be around 40 hours.
