3D Printing Neophyte
Thank you for the instructions,
I have the following questions \ comments:
Step 15) I’ve got a feeling that the hob\gear shaft is machined down to the ID of the bearing and then the circlip grove is cut after,
because there is a considerable bur and I had to (tap-ity tap tap) the shaft through both bearings with a fairly large attitude adjuster.
I now fear for the life of those two little bearings and probably need a 2 ton press to extract the shaft from the assembly later.
Step 17) You might want to mention that the second elbow must be swivelled in order to install…I wondered about that for a minute or two.
Step 25) All metal extruder…blush…
Step 26) How tight or far in do we screw the hotend into the coldend ?
The screwing goes from ‘no’ resistance to ‘increasing’ resistance as the PTFE appears to come into contact with the coldend.
But do we stop at a convenient orientation of the hotend, or do we screw it to refusal ?
Once they have, you'll be able to view a graph of their reputation gained over time.
Here's a preview of what the graph will look like:
