The issues of the last week have been many, and mostly stem from a loose grub screw on the belt drive on the stepper motor. But there have also been issues with the hot bed sliding a little and also the stepper controllers missing (too low torque) or stalling (over temp shutdown). And then there were the fires. Feasible theories for most of them. I have spare controllers now :-)
Today has been almost as fun, but the problems have been in the firmware. Turns out it is almost as special as the hardware. Thankfully an area I am a lot happier tinkering.
I am sure there is plenty of fine tuning that can now be done to make the quality even better, but this is looking pretty good compared to anything I have printed before, so I am reasonably pleased.
Of course there is something of a TARDIS graveyard (and this is not all of them).
