akka69 replied to akka69's topic in Modifications, third party add-ons & other hardwareDidn't know about it... That's the idea.
akka69 posted a topic in Modifications, third party add-ons & other hardwareHi, I'm new to Ultimaker, but reading your documentation and watching your videos, i had this dumb idea. Would the precision of the printer head moves be improved if you put a dead weight equal to or greater than the head's weight moving in the opposite direction? Even if it increases the total moving weight and hence the motors effort, it would compensate the inertial reaction on the strutcure. A little bit like counter rotating blades compensate torque on small model helicopters or rather those massive moving weight put on tall buildings to absorbe earthquakes moves.
