Hi there, Mine's sort of still in operation although the printer itself still has most of its original components it now has Ramps 1.4, an e3d v6 extruder, a proximity switched z home instead of a microswitch, heated bed of course and wiring from a mad scientist's laboratory. As a retired engineer I checked out alignment in all sorts of directions and gradually homed in on as near a perfect set up as I was happy with. One of the first things to go was the plastic bed which was replaced with 10mm aviation quality aluminium plate and a Geckotek magnetic build plate. I keep messing about with the idea of auto levelling but I can't properly get my head round it, anybody with a solution would be welcome lol.

I keep thinking about retiring the machine and getting a new one but I still think there's plenty left that's useful.
