Re: BETA testers discussion

I'm stuck right now as I need to remove the Z motor plate and slot it so I can slide the motor over about 1-2 mm to reattach to the Z-coupler. After that the mechanicals should be 100% done for me.

Re: BETA testers discussion

I have concern about my Z threaded rod and the motor mount as well. With the sled near the top the rod has to bend a bit from the coupler to the anti-backlash nut.

Re: Curing LARGE parts without tilt mechanisms

I think that's a great idea. Partial curing is used in the Helios though I don't know if that is laser or DLP based.
