Auto stop when finished print + bent shaft

Postby Eystein » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:00 am

Thank you for helping a newbie.
Just received my N2 Plus. Noticed that the left x-shaft is bent (about 2 mm). Can it be straightened or di I need a replace ? Any instructions about how to replace the shaft ?

Will the printer stop when the print is finished ? Is it safe to leave it on overnight ?

For the bent shaft, you may need to share some pictures or videos onto our ticket system. Our engineer can help you check whether it is due to rod itself or misalignment.

When the print has done, the printer will stop and home the printer head =to origin point. Always recommend if it is available, someone near the printer when running is the most safe way. But since the printer is such huge size and some big project needs several days to complete, leave it alone overnight normally won't have much problem.

my shaft was bowed, not bent as the pulley alignment was off! Once I realigned it, it sprang back straight!
