YRS 3D Printer Status and Log

The YRS 3d Printer is being 'lent'/allowed to be completed by the owners the ail is to complete this and then finish the Hackspace owned printer to have a '3d Printer as a tool' available in the space.

The YRS printer is basically complete and the build should go fairly quickly the hackspace printer will require (at least) Electonics, and possibly other bits.

YRS Build Log

X-end idler was broken New part printed

X Smooth rods too long (length for non LM8 X ends) Cut down by 15mm to 435mm

X assembly built and fitted

Z motors added with coupling rods - motors not screwed in place notes on web seem to indicate that it may be better to not screw these down but to use tie wraps to hold them in place and redude out of alignment rough spots/vibration.

X carriage movement a bit stiff, a couple of tries using washers/spacers to make it run better it now moves reasonably, further adjustment may be needed once the electronics/motors are connected and under power testing can be done.
