It's Alive II - sort off...
"Richard" is assembled and has been tested. Things are moving, but there are still a few major problems. Not enough capa is being extruded, squares look like parallelograms, belts skip - sometimes even off the (Z) gears - and there is some odd behavior when starting on a part.
I guess some major tweaking needs to be done, or this is where the inaccuracies of my tools and skills really make a difference.
Anyway, it is still a pretty sight, specially when it moves around on my command :-)
Keep up with the good job, I think many here are interested in your MDF approach.
Englewood: keep in mind that rigidity is a determining factor if you want to have higher degrees of accuracy. softer woods like pine would allow for to much "play room"
I just bought MDF and got it cut 15.75" X 15.75". I printed the drill templates and measured the 200 mm from Centerline to centerline on A and B. It was only 7", (178mm). I used A4 sized paper, does anyone know how to correct this?
