"How it should look like" after photos?

Recommended Posts

Maybe instead you should take a photo of what you already have and ask if it's okay? Were you the one having assembly confusion? I haven't looked at assembly instructions in a while but they used to have plenty of great pictures. Maybe you can skip ahead and see pictures later in the instructions?

We've skipped ahead hoping for better pictures of the completed items but haven't

Based on some of the alignment issues others have had, I am trying to avoid re-doing things.

(And kinda wishing i went with assembled...I'd rather be printing versus decoding the wiki/building) :)

You mean this part?


Slider blocks can only go one way. 2 of them are kind of upside-down from the other 2

Look at the assembly for print head - the bars that go into the print head come from the slider blocks.

It's easy to take it all apart. Especially if you don't tighten down the setscrews.

You don't need to put end caps on either. Half of mine are loose right now anyway.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
