Play in the extruder carriage

Postby Andy Cohen » Fri Apr 01, 2016 8:33 pm

I think I found why I see so much ringing in my prints. If I hold the extruder carriage I can move it and feel play That is there's play in the bearings (or are they bushings) in the square part of the carriage. No play anywhere else in the gantry only there, but it's enough to make the ringing. Anybody else seeing this?
