I have purchased your kit for my build. Has the current already been set for the steppers?Maker BakerParticipantJanuary 12, 2016 at 3:19 pmPost count: 39
awesome thank you! ok question number two… sorry… my cnc is in the other room so I planned on just printed from SD card… do I need to hook it to computer for anything first time around because my display is blank, lights up turns on but just says nothing…
WONT LET ME DELETE POST… sorry I was trying to use a regular smart display, but I plugged in a extra full graphics display and it worked just fine!Maker BakerParticipantJanuary 12, 2016 at 6:57 pmPost count: 39
By the way. Awesome kit man! You really put a good set together for cheaper then I probably could of priced it out and setting up the drivers already. In about a month I’ll be looking to hold another if this one goes smooth as planned.
Also I did a no no n printed in abs. So everything is realllllllllllly tight. Anything I can do? Loosen some bearing somewhere? I only tightened the bolts until they came flush with the lock nut. But on the bright side it glows in the dark lol.vicious1KeymasterJanuary 12, 2016 at 7:29 pmPost count: 2649
Thanks for taking the time to say that!
Best you can do is loosen all the big bolts. The abs should relax a bit and the zinc coating will wear off. This should loosen it up a bit with use. If you have issues just slow it down a bit and I think you will be okay. People have done some crazy things to loosen up there parts but I do not recommend them.Maker BakerParticipantJanuary 13, 2016 at 5:18 amPost count: 39
Yea I was hoping everything would relax a bit. I’ll back them all off as much as I can. Just from pushing it around (with force) trying to knock the high spots down on the coating (tried sanding it off, just took 2 hours for 1 5ft bar. So I stopped lol) and the bearing are actually leaving a flat spot you can feel on the rails. I’m gonna have to order some PLA or something else and reprint, I broke two roller Fs in the middle threw the outside single bearing bolt.vicious1KeymasterJanuary 13, 2016 at 6:30 amPost count: 2649
That’s a bummer.
I have never had any luck with ABS at all.
