I've been keeping the members mailing list updated with my progress. The
printer is not quite ready for general use.
Currently, there is an issue with the extruder stopping due to the small
gear slipping. It press fit onto the stepper shaft and when the motor heats
up, the plastic softens and it slips. I have printed a replacement with a
set-screw, which should fix the issue.
There are still some things to be done (approximate order):
- Hotend cooling fan (& PID tuning)
- Electronics cooling fan & stepper driver heatsinks
- Opto endstop holders need to be printed (including adjustable Z-axis)
- Print setting calibration (in Slic3r)
