Re: Geeetech Aluminum prusa Z-axis slipping

How much are they getting off? I occasionally use my calipers to get them back a matching height (measure between the bttom of brass threaded piece and the top of the acrylic z motor mount plate). But this is usually just a mm of offset after a dozen prints or more (less if I'm doing particularly ta...

Re: i3 pro C - rearranging the metal block below the extrude

What a great idea! I also don't like how the heat blocks are right up against the mounting plate, I suspect at the least this has to lower life expectancy of those bearing right behind there. But yeah, I have the same issue with it bumping the clips, and there's so little room between the screws on ...

Re: Improve Z-Axis precision

Try this idea: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:847561 BUT using these top Z-axis rod plates from this collection, without any bearings in them for the same effect: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2143158 Threaded rods are ALWAYS less than perfect.
