my guess is your problem lies in the y axis.. thats the big weight beíng jerked around. (i had the most problems with this axis also)
could it be flimsy motorbrackets? my y axis motormount wasn't really sturdy so i made a little support so the motor doesn't bounce when printing.
also the screws on the bed(including the beltmount), are they secure enough? i read somewere there were problems with screws being too long..

picture of my support thingy.. also see the great china quality of my printer :lol: my supplier had some issues too

Hi ronka,

The bed and the carriage are well mounted together.

The MK2S has such a support as well (see ... /298#s5153).

However I can wiggle my motor a bit, don't know if that's normal. I put it on my todo list to check. Thanks!

Is your printer a china kit? I wasn't aware of any with extrusions.

BR, Hendrik
