extruder cap crooked
Open, Needs TriagePublic


I noticed the extruder cap doesn't seem to sit flat/straight. I haven't spotted the issue yet, I don't believe any wires are being pinched as far as I can tell.

I disconnected the extruder and put the cap back on without the cables underneath and it still looks crooked, so I don't think it is interference with any cabling.
A quick assembly of the two parts in FreeCAD doesn't show any interference either:

I did notice however that one of the screw holes is filled, this doesn't show up in the slice though. Just something to keep in mind should we need to make any changes to the cap in the future.

interesting. i didnt notice that on the two units that were over here

It is slight, but more noticeable when the tool head is at the home position, you can see it against the top frame extrusion.

It is a bit difficult to get a good picture of it.

The UL printer isn't bad, but just noticeable when homed.

Has this been resolved or addressed? Did we see this more in the betas?
