Printing issues  - 
 
What do you guys do to compensate for a slightly twisted spider? My printer prints very well from each extruder on their own but I tried a few dual color jobs and it looks like theres an X difference. In Slic3r I just have the Y's at -13 and 13 like the getting started guide. I was thinking of measuring (trying) the layer shift between colors as best I can and splitting the difference and entering them for X in Slic3r.

Thoughts?

Well I found that one rod is a tiny bit long and one was about triple that too short (or vice versa...) It sucks that these are all threaded the same way so fine adjustment isn't that doable where as other tie rods have right and left hand threads :/

Anyways I have them setting in loctite hopefully be cured tomorrow to give it a try :D

For a temp fix I set an X offset between the extruders and it worked fine for smaller objects but spread out as they got bigger, plus i started to notice a tilt in the hotends so i started on the rods.

Is it possible to get the pictures taken to better grasp what he did for the drive mechanism?

Any chance you could post the design files? (STLs and Schematics?)

What did you base the reflow code off of? Or did you write the whole thing from scratch?

Any news in 2014?

We just got one and I figure we are just going to ignore it :)

Do you think you'd be able to cut like 1/4inch wood or acrylic with that 40w?
