Anycubic Kossel Linear - Slider question

by Jimbob_McCoi

A short question - how heavy / tight may / should the linear sliders of the Kossel linear Plus run?

The print head is not installed yet and I can still move the sliders back and forth by hand.

In my case they do not slip 100% from top to bottom. They stop at different points, but can be easily pushed again with the finger and then continue to run.

I already cleaned the sliders and the rails with brake cleaner and then rubbed them with silicone grease.

The question now is how smoothly must the sliders run so that there are no problems during operation?

Help With Heated Bed

by JBlock4

Ever since I got my Anycubic kossel almost 2 years ago, I knew that the heated bed it came with doesn't work. However, If i try to power the heat bed externally with a power supply it works, but when i try to plug it into the main board and alter the code to recognize it it does not heat up. A closer look on the main board shows that the indicator light for the heat bed stays off, so i'm assuming the board isn't supplying any power to the bed, but it still says "Heating". Has anyone else encountered this error, and if so, how can I fix it?

Magnetic print bed

by sd_042

Has anyone put a magnetic print bed on their AnyCubic Kossel? I have one on my Wanhao I3+ and my FF CP and it's incredibly convenient.

I have a AnyCubic kossel linear plus and I'm thinking about buying a 250mm magnetic print bed, trimming it to shape and using it and I was wondering if anyone else did it already.

Regarding the AnyCubic kossel linear plus: WOW, that's a good printer and I'm having fun with it.

IdeaMaker? best slicer my favorite now with round base support

by Dave57000

good news all IdearMaker now supports round/elipes bases which means you can use it with your kossel and you can now put supports just were you want then and get rid off the ones you dont want cool and its free download from here
this is a copy of the start gcode i use, it primes the head just off the bed so most of the time you can set it going and leave it. going to make a v shaped fillement catcher to stick on the bed to work with it when i have a mo . use it at your own risk
