X-Y ALIGNMENT AND LOOSE BELT CORRECTION

Postby Billucas » Tue Aug 09, 2016 3:35 pm

Hello!
I have a problem of alignment; my rods are not perpendiculars and one belt is loose. I put the 2 yellow clips, while the block that hold the loose belt is unscrew. What is the best procedure to put the belt back on, and tighten it?
When I move the extruder by hand it is not smooth free. What is the best way to align everything and make the extruder free to move?
Thanks! Luc

John from support Raise3d answer me. Thanks to him.
He send me a procedure with a Word document, STL block, etc...
It is good to know how we can ajust belts ans also the x-y gantry.
Maybe it should be on the FAQ website page for everyone?

Is this info available yet?
My right side belt on my N2 is a little loose and beginning to squeak. I would love to see the proper procedure, before doing it myself.
Thanks!

I created a ticket, but haven't heard anything in a few days. The problem isn't the driver, so I think I also need the alignment document.

I am having the same problem. I created a ticket, but haven't heard anything in a couple of days. It isn't the motor driver, so I think I need to perform the alignment. Can you please send it to me? Ticket #1215

Sorry for our late response.
Will ask our engineers to help check ticket.

Is that your axis stuck very hard when hand moving? And it is very hard for screen to move the both directions?

I suppose, I have the same problem again:
After having some shifted layer prints recently, I moved the print head around by hand with steppers disabled and found that it stucks on the very left side. I already had this issue at the beginning, shortly after I received the printer. At that time I could solve it by loosening and tightening the screws locking the inner rods. I also removed all grease on the rods which came from the factory.
Now I did the same procedure again but it didn't help, so I suppose the tension of the belts could also play a role. But for checking this I would prefer to have detailed instructions. Are they publicly available in the meantime?
I would appreciate any help...
