Re: G2s extruder not working

Thanks Eric,

After reading FAQ, get extruder motor moving filament using in LCD or Repeitor manual mode. Still couldn't get filament to come out running print jobs. Need some Slicer profile examples to setup using PLA 1.75 for test run.

Thanks

Shacky structure (smooth rods)

Hi all expected.

I just finished install the g2 smooth rods and form the G2 frame , it seem the rods couldnt be tightened to form the steady frame !? Assume if powerup the Delta arm movement will cause the frame to move a lot and may cause accuracy issue. Is this normal ? Please help.

Thanks
