Hi Folks, I hope someone can point me to the cause of my woes! A friend has kindly printed all of the parts from my machine, I beleive he used the IE parts from thingieverse. The problem that I have is that the threaded rod is fouling on the bolt heads for the Z axis bearings and causing me to lose steps due to the excess drag on the rod.
My gut instinct is that something isn’t printed correctly , perhaps the Z nut lock causing the rod to lie to close to the gantry?
The lower 2 bolt heads are the worst offenders and I have ground down the heads on those quite a bit but it hasn’t fully cured the problem, the top most one doesn’t quite foul the rod but its close, can just about slide a business card inbetween the bolt head and the rod but that’s all.
Any help with this would be gratefully received
