Re: Nuts on z-axes loose

Why are they intentionally loose? All other motion control systems I've worked on had those screws tightened. Is the axis so misaligned that it requires that there be play intentionally? Just curious.

Could be wrong, but I think Stratasys may already have a patent on that.

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

While I wait for this extruder for my N2, I am curious if anyone has ever used the Bondtech gear set in their own custom extruder? How did it turn it out? You can PM me if you would like. Thank you.

When will we be able to make changes to the LCD software? There are a few things I've been wanting to change.

Re: CNC Machined Gantry

Scratch this thread. The new bondtech extruder is lighter, better and will produce less deflection in the rods. Very excited!

Re: CNC Machined Gantry

69 microns is still pretty high. But I have built systems to 5 microns or less over 24 inches. If my numbers are right, 69 microns is 0.0027 inches. I wonder what 12mm solid shafts would do?

CNC Machined Gantry

Would it be possible to use a square linear rail bolted to a CNC machined aluminum gantry beam for the N2? Something like a THK RSR miniature linear guide. Optimum geometry to minimize inertial deflection and deflection due to gravity would be a machined truss. Ideal material would be stress free ca...
