i broke something

Recommended Posts

Posted · i broke something

i noticed this morning that the bundle of cables that run parallel to the bowden tube has come lose and it looks like some wires have disconnected.IMG_20151107_095128.thumb.jpg.97ae9f819f8bc0ac7a58373356351258.jpg as you can see the brown wire isnt plugging into anything. where does it need to go and is it an easy fix for a novice like me? also what can i do to reattach the meshing to the print head area and maybe reinforce it.

Don't worry, you didn't break anything. The brown wire shouldn't be connected to anything.

As for the wire mesh, just... how do I say this without sounding naughty... Stroke it, starting at the feeder end, working your way towards the head. That'll make it expand and get longer. Yeah... I think I failed the naughty part :p
