Re: Prusa i3 Clone Bed Leveling Issue

Yep. That was it. I swapped out the pulleys and now the bed leveling works fine. I got my first print off and it came out pretty well all things consider- a bit of under extrusion, but pretty good. However, I had a pretty significant layer drift issue. (See photos below.) Each layer was increasingly...

Prusa i3 Clone Bed Leveling Issue

I am relatively new to 3D printing. I've used them for projects at my university, but I came across Tom's Dolly tutorial and decided to build one (see pictures below). I didn't go for absolute lowest cost. Instead I used an aluminium frame, trapezoidal rods, and mini-RAMBo 1.3a as a control board (a...
