Belt Tension

Just a quick question guys.

I've finished assembling the entire rostock. When I push the cheapstakes up to the endstop and let go they tend to slide down about 5mm.

Should I tighten the belt so that the cheapstakes stay pressed up against the endstops when pushed all the way to the top?

Ive ordered parts from the states and my ABS spools were shipped from China. For the most part I do order from China. But not everywhere in China ships to Cambodia. Also its difficult finding the right parts from a seller who ships to Cambodia for a low cost. Although China is closer geographically ...

Re: Calibration Help Needed. Any Advice Welcome

Cope413 - I put the flowrate of the print at 50 so thats maybe why it took about 2 hours. But this recent print i did I changed the flow rate to 80 and it still about an hour and 40 minutes.
