@logan this may correct the issue we have seen where some machines skip a few steps on the right when auto leveling

@tutley I noticed the snug fit when building mine. Looking at it I don't see a visible gap and pushing it to the left firmly doesn't appear to move at all. Perhaps I am looking in the wrong spot?

So there is a small gap there but I am unable to close it as the bump stop in my case is interfering with the x motor mount at the x bump stops rear chamfer.

This ticket is changing the bump stop so it will sit flat against the x motor

Sorry I meant to say that it interferes with the flange on the rear that the x motor chain mount secures to, not the x motor mount flange.

@west still getting a skip with the new bump stop

west added a comment.Dec 12 2018, 7:10 AM

@logan are there less skips than before?

@west Yes, it is less but still audibly present

FWIW this bump stop is likely even a tad shorter than designed due to over squish, the end has a good elephants foot going on.

@logan @MikeR any updates on if this one is good to go or not?

@DaniAO This new part sits on there better, no issue from me.

MikeR added a comment.Jan 21 2019, 9:13 AM

@DaniAO I think it it still a tad tight to get on but overall it seems better.

@west @logan @MikeR How many machines is this part on total?

MikeR added a comment.Jan 21 2019, 9:45 AM

I know that at least quiver 6, 7, and 11 have the new x-bump stop.

west added a comment.Jan 21 2019, 9:47 AM

I have it recorded on 18,3,6, and 7

okay.. so a few machines. Do we feel like this is good to go, or would we like more testing?
