Re: Flat Spot on wheel

Or maybe upgrade to the new carriage set http://www.seemecnc.com/collections/par ... rriage-set


I currently have the carbon fiber arms, I wonder if that kit would work with it?

Flat Spot on wheel

One of my carriages developed a flat spot on one of its wheels. SeeMeCNC wants $32 for a new set. Is there any way to get the flat spot out of the wheel aside from replacing them?

Re: Jtech Photonics Laser Kit

Reflashing the smoothieboard with latest edge fixed the problem. I have some 3" open cell foam coming in the mail, will update then. If any of you guys want examples of stuff being cut let me know / mail me something.

I've got a few spares I could swap out the SMD with a different one. This setup came from a rostock max, i wonder why my m...

Re: "Home Towers" only resets 2 of 3 towers... sometimes.

Make sure the endstop wires are isolated from all other wires on the printer, they could be introducing enough noise on the wire to make the printer think the endstop has been triggered prematurely.
