Re: TOM's i3 Dolly build along PRUSA MK2 clones

200 for printed parts sounds really expensive. I would keep looking for someone else to print them. To answer your question, yes the price asumes your printed parts are free.

Re: MK2S started to show Ringing/Ghosting

Just out of curiosity, If you print a model from Prusa that came on the SD card, do you see the same issue. What Slicer are you using?

Re: MK2S started to show Ringing/Ghosting

Have you messed with re-setting the belt pulleys? I have noticed sometimes the grub screw is not exactly square with the flat spot on the motor shaft.

Re: MK2S started to show Ringing/Ghosting

Sorry to hear that, but I think you are on the right track. Is the printer setting on something different now maybe? Is it added vibration from the base?

No infill, the shell setting is high enough and the part is so thin it makes the walls solid.

Re: MK2S started to show Ringing/Ghosting

Yes in the Z, I guess it is probably more like Z wobble. What is your E steps set to? (M503) Is that the Prusa sliver filament you got with your kit? Mine is 161.30 by default and with the Prusa silver it under extrudes by about 5mm. Just a though, maybe there is a slight clog some where and the und...

Re: MK2S started to show Ringing/Ghosting

Cool, let me know how it goes. I have tighten them to much before and it will mar the smooth runs very quickly. It is defiantly difficult to get them perfect. Do you know if/where there is an updated STL for the X idler piece I can print?

Re: MK2S started to show Ringing/Ghosting

So I printed mine facing the X axis. I am not seeing the same issues. I have seen it on other parts. Check out the green piece, the ringing is made worse by the structure of the part, it is only 2mm thick. http://i1292.photobucket.com/albums/b576/brotherchris81/Mobile%20Uploads/20170616_104901_zpsqv...

Re: MK2S started to show Ringing/Ghosting

I have had some ringing issues lately. Let me print a benchy. We can compare and see if it's the same issue. I'll get back to you.

Re: TOM's i3 Dolly build along PRUSA MK2 clones

Here is a parts list of all the things I used and where I got them. A lot of this stuff I had already so I didn't really spend $350 just to build this printer. Also, some of these items I could have gotten cheaper from Aliexpress if I would have been more patient and waited for shipping. https://doc...
