Re: Bearings on carriage: why 2-1 bearing arrangement?

from what i have read online, its a design standard using a triangle arrangement to have the x carriage not wiggle.
this helps keep the carriage straight and not wobble and also not have any of the bearings act as a brake to the others

Re: pause rprinting

You can edit g code and add a pause.

Re: [SOLVED] - HICTOP I3 CALIBRATION ISSUE

Re: New board -- everything is wrong

Re: Hic 3DP-08 Marlin 1.1.0 RC8

I know it... i got a 12864LCD installed and it took me 90 minutes to figure out how to make it work.... I didnt know anything prior to my printer either, but i am a good self thought learner... and yes the 90 minutes was not around enabling the right comment... it was about making sure i disabled on...

Re: Auto Bed, Lead Screw, Extruder Upgrade MK2 from Prusa3d

Just by looking at the actual hardware, i would say its not compatible. But for that price alone, the hot end, motors, and bed are almost worth the price themselves. I spent about $79 shipped for a E3Dv6 full hot end kit with an extra nozzle and extra silicone covers. Im sure theres ways to make it ...
