  1. thank you for the reply but how would i know what the right calibrations are for the stepper motors all i know its 200x200x180mm but its settings are back on "restore failsafe settings" if that makes any sence at all? the frame seems straight on the 90 degre angle so im not sure what the problem is right now, the table its on is wobbly and moves when the printer is printing but i have a solution for that ill see how it goes and ill be back if i have no joy
  2. thank you. also i know my work bench aint level right now however once thats fixed i will be looking at my printer, im itching with pure excitement but i cant do much about the work station right now as i need to a new on... hopefully level, however i have been looking over my setting im sure theirs room for adjustment too. i just wish i understood what they was and what they do in simple terms lol. its amazing because i learned how to understand a commuter and fix them and manage to do things by myself however when it comes to this 3d printer its leaving me scratch my head. ill give what u s
