S5 safety against fan-bracket crash

Posted · S5 safety against fan-bracket crash

humans needs to set goals for themselves! No, seriously, I have found that when printing tall objects the printhead sometimes gets entangled with the object and this pushed the plate around. If the plate were fixed with a proper kinematic mount, the tallest piece may still get knocked-off, but at least the lower models could still get printed properly. Or maybe not, I don't know. Maybe not such a great idea after all... 🙂

    This has only happened to me if I get excessive curling on the material. I routinely print full height in many cases. So, the pushing down the top of the clips solved that for me when I get the curling.

    I am thinking not since it could void your warranty and also create issues with the bed leveling.
