180 degrees from where?
We did a second drop test and here are the results.
Ah ok gotcha. So just home the printer to get it level. check. Thanks for the info.
@west So should we just get rid of the x-level function altogether?
I have this installed on my machine and it has been working, however would it be possible , that once both end stops are triggered it ends the x-level sequence? Currently it does the same thing where it goes up and triggers both stops but then bounces a few more times. When it does that the x-axis can get out of sync and may not be truly level. I also think it is un-necessary for it to keep leveling once both end stops have been triggered.

If I could get a few of each of these parts I could get a weight for them. All the other parts have already been put onto machines.
@tutley I have not printed with any flexy recently. I may have had an issue with my tensions with the flexy. Once I get my printer put back together I will try it again.

@tutley do we need to update just the ones that were changed today?
@tutley did the heatsink fan (AS-CB0094) need to be updated as well?

I was still having some issues on Friday after I switched back to .54. I will try .70 and see if My issues go away.

Quiver 6 was also doing something very similar however I was using .67 firmware.
This will also benefit production as well. It will be clear to see a difference in the parts, and will help putting it together in the right spots.
I was able to get this part installed today and fit much better.
@Steven I first had the runout set to 14mm then I increased it to 34mm. Both ended up running out.
HEre is the gcode I was using. Nozzle one was ninjaflex and nozzle 2 was polyflex.
@DaniAO I have not seen this issue since I switched back to using nGen. I was having too much trouble with the flexy that I had to change. I don't know if there is anyone else who has tried printing with flexy material other than josh to see if they have the same problem. It looked like the flexy filament was getting jammed somehow and would stop extruding after a few layers.

@Steven I will try to get this part installed on my merchine sometime today.
@Steven it was a very simple install the round feet, only minor issue that may not be a big deal is they are small enough for a little bit of the metal from the extrusions is poking out the sides. Could be a poking hazard , other than that it was good in the neighborhood.
@Steven My blower shroud has not hit the wiper mount since we made the change, however and I do not know if this just my machine, but I have been consistently wiping a little to the right on the wiper pad.

@Steven I have not had any issues with the cables hitting the motor after I installed the new cable covers.
@Steven my belt tension did go u[p a little more and I have more room to adjust the belt tension so I would say it was acceptable.
I will agree with @tutley the new covers are much easier to put on and take off.

FWIW I have not had this issue using cura 3.6.2

We may want to make a jig for pressing in the precision bushings for the z-motor and z-idler carriages. So I was thinking of taking a smooth rod with a rod shaped printed part fixed to the smooth rod with some smooth rod coming out the other end. You could then slide a bushing onto the smooth rod and use that to press in the bushing.
@west for the record I haven't been the one to shock it, Oliver and Paulette have shocked the sensor on the left and right side.

I will post my findings tomorrow after my print finishes.
Unless I am reading that wrong.
@west I say 5 in*lbs cause that is the torque we check right now for taz 6. It just seems like it should grab more and whats one more screw since we are already using like 15 different screw sizes.
@west were you able to torque the screw to 5 in*lbs without it stripping?
@west I have only been able to get like one turn maybe 2.

@DaniAO I have not really seen any binding due to excessive drag on the tool head. I did notice while building the tool heads some of the motor mounts felt a little tight but I have not had a working printer that could not go through its whole range of motion with the actuators. Thats not to say we wont ever get any with too much drag but as far as the alphas go I have not had a problem.

Ah I see now, I got shovel and I dig it.
Why would I get this error if I am not printing from the USB stick? Unless the USB cable can give the same error, then why would the USB board be bad?
@tutley how easy is that board to replace? Do we have extras of those boards?
@tutley so do I need to replace the archim board?
I have had this same issue on Quiver 17.
@tutley I hadn't gotten to printing yet. I found the slop while I was going through the QC checklist I have. If you want I can try doing some prints to see if it gives me issues.

I have been able to duplicate this same error.

@west it will start rubbing several mm away from the x home.
I have a few notes on the record.
Something that dani told me, if we increase the run out length from 14mm to 25mm that could help.
@west the drag value was like 17N. I had set the printer aside since it was not working so I don't have to run the M914.

@west I was able to get two of the new mounts installed on one machine and they seem to work pretty well, I did still have a little trouble with the top back one but I was able to get it installed.
Logan showed me the correct way to remove the feed tubes which is a lot easier so I will close this ticket due to operator error.
@oliver when you say "lay the frame on top of the control box and allow the screw to pull the frame towards the bracket" does that mean you had to hold the frame up while you screwed it into the control box?
If you do that once you put the bracket on the frame, the frame and control box will push the screws out giving you the same problem.

@west I havent tried them yet, but when I do I will update this ticket.

I'm not really understanding how this jig will function. From building the alphas we have to get the actuators mounted before the bottom plate can go on and I think the jig @samantha is describing would need all four rods in without the actuators on. I do not think we could effectively use a jig like this.

The height for the extruder gear is 4mm from the top of the lip on the motor. We can make a 4mm spacer jig to help get these on faster.
@jperry I think we just have one more part, it would be PP-GP0426. This part was not on the BOM so we are just making sure it is still needed.
Almost done weighing parts. Here are a few more.
Nov 29 2018
@west we would use 2 per machine, that I know of.

@DaniAO sorry about that I fixed it.
A few more weights.
A few more weights.
For the interface board mount we may want a jig for inserts.
