Re: not sure what happened here

It's covered in grease from the factory greasing of the rods and then the general sliding movement of the system every print. Since the homing sequence slides down the rod towards it every time you print, it tends to push the grease down the rod toward the ends (far ends of travel) and since this is...

Re: not sure what happened here

Also, hint, move the head left to right to make that shaft rotate. Even though the rod is in line and slides for Y axis, it's the rotating part for X axis.

Re: not sure what happened here

Again, to make this adjustment or fix, you may want to lower the bed as far as possible using the LCD jog menu. This way you can get to it both from the top view you have now and maybe if required from the bottom up. If the bed is too close, that blocks your bottom up access. Then like I said, befor...

Re: not sure what happened here

You will notice as it rotates, it has a pair of setscrews that lock it to the shaft in that position. DSC05016.JPG Further, the actual linear bearing pressed into the block should look like this. The black dots are graphite puck inserts that provide the lubrication. 4pcs-Ultimaker-2-Graphite-Bushing...

Re: not sure what happened here

Further review shows that your collar appears to be loose on the shaft and has moved towards the middle. That just means the setscrews are loose. Notice mine here first very near the pulley again this is the right side front of the printer. My right side locking collar.JPG Now your picture shot show...

Re: not sure what happened here

Took me a second to get the orientation, that's the right hand side of the printer and that's NOT a bearing. it appears that one of the rings that was inside the guide on the right rail of my N2 plus came loose. That is the shaft stop collar locked to the shaft to prevent over travel. Again, that &q...

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

Also, I feel like we now solved the Z banding, this is now a different issue. The Z axis is not causing the patter you are seeing now, this is an extrusion volume compared to XY movement from what I know, but until I run your file, see if my machine does the same thing or if I can tune things to mak...

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

I'm right in the middle of a 20 hour print on my N1. Can you do me a favor and share the exact gcode files you printed for those 2 test objects? I want to see if I can reproduce and then tell you what to tune. Also, details on your printer: I assume stock feeder since you just asked about changing o...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I do want to give a counter flipside to this. I know there are people who swear by the genuine E3D V6 thermal design (heatbreak AKA thermal barrier, heatsink, and heaterblock). I recently went through a battle attempting to print a huge 3D part (just happens to be a supercapacitor stacking/mounting ...

Re: Marlin Firmware 1.1.6v1 source code bug

No replies? Nobody else is looking at this?

Again, I'm not saying users should not use this version of firmware, but i would hope we can come up with a revision here and "fix" this to an acceptable standard soon. It's not that complicated.

Re: Issue after changing motion board

Correct, if they are in the socket wrong or blown for any reason they do not work ever again. You have to replace them. The test again is simple. Use the LCD panel and then use the jog menu to command the axis to move both in positive and negative directions. If it never makes a sound or tries to mo...

Re: Issue after changing motion board

If it won't jog, then you blew the stepper drivers.
Use extreme caution when replacing them to no plug them in the wrong direction.

Please screenshot your profile page. I think you are using them incorrectly in the starting gcode pane.
