I would think the Z axis hall sensor would stop you from doing this. You should be able to adjust the height accordingly of the sensor so this doesn’t happen.
Thanks Quentin for the info, I’ll give it a shot and let you know how it goes.
Found out why my platform was rocking and seemed to be a little loose. It looks like one of my ported ends on the rear PVC pipe snapped off its base.
Do you think I can re-glue it with super glue to get it to hold and re-attach?
Got another question for you. Regarding the 4 PVC support pipes. Are they suppose to touch each other on the sides? If you look at the picture up above of my setup, where the pipes cross at the middle part of the X is where they touch, is this by design or should they not touch?
Still chugging along with my build. Had other projects that got in the way, but are now starting to wind down.
Here’s my latest pic. I noticed when putting my frame together I ran into to issues. 1) the M4 nuts embedded within the PVC come when I was putting the stand together. I ended up drilling a 1/2 hole in order to get the nut out and re-seat it. Tell me there’s got to be a better way to design this so that this doesn’t happen to other people. 2) The PVC pipes are under a lot of stress, is this by design?
Thanks for the tip. I’ll try that when I get back home.
Thanks guys. So the issue I’m seeing is when I do line them up on the ridges inside, 1 or both of the bearings seem to be mis-aligned on the rod. They do not slide smoothly at all, and sliding the rod up and down on the shaft produces a scraping sound. Should the linear bearings just self align or do I have a set of brand new bearings that are bad?
Any update on this?
How should the linear bearings sit in the arms? There are 2 raised ridges inside the Z-axis arms. I’ve tried to place both bearing between the ridges, only to find they will not fit. If I place each bearing in the middle of each ridge, they are not aligned correctly for the Z-axis rods. Can you either show me how they should fit in mechanically or explain it to me better?
Just got my printed parts, now I’m aiming to start assembling it after next week.
About $140 – $160 total, I’m still waiting for the shipping charges to show up. It’s still cheaper than the states, at least that’s what I found so far. I’d wait and see the quality of the parts before you order anything from him. I may be surprised, but at this point I don’t have any reason to believe that I will get bad parts. I’m going to post all the parts online when I receive it.
