A little rough, but,,,,,

They had to start somewhere. Also, reading the comments for the video, the Fusion 360 team appears to be monitoring the comments, and fixing things on the fly.

Re: EZR Struder clicking

I assume you re-used the stepper motors from the printers, for the new extruders. With both printers in the same room, I would compare the extruder motor temperature on each one,,,,, if the one that is skipping is cooler than the other one, I'd bump up the current some more.

Re: bed temperature

Does it seem to take the bed longer to heat up also? I would check the terminals on the RamBO board, check that the screws are tight, as the connection can loosen over time with the repeated heat cycles.
