Comments Off on Great Gear print!

Pretty excited about todays gear print. I adjusted the Y axis because I noticed it was rubbing against a rod which is very close to the bottom of it. I basically inverted the rod clamps so it brought it higher which does reduce my clearance height, but thats OK since I can still print up […]

After so much difficulty with the huxley, I’ve finally come to a good build. I decided to print out a mini wade extruder because the bowden is what is causing a lot of problems right now. As you can see from the following photos that I had to put wood screws into the bowden cable […]
