I hab problems with z-axis wobble by printing with the Velleman K8200 printer.
So i hade made some modifikation.
First i had changed the solid coupler (z-axis and stepper-motor).
With the new flex coupler i had the problem thad the z-axis holter starts to wobble.
So i had made a new one to fix this.
Now the printer works correct.
For mountig you need 2x M5x10mm and 1x M5x16mm

Hallo und Dank für das File,
was sind denn die optimalen einstellungen für den slicer?
Gruß aus dem Norden,

Hi, ich habe damals
Layer 0.20 mm
Solid bottom 3
Solid top 5
perimeter 3
infil 0.25 (wabe)
Die Passung des Halters am Profil habe ich extra sehr streng gemacht (Damit so wenig spiel wie möglich ist), da könnten vielleicht noch ein paar Züge mit einer feinen Feile nötig sein (hängt vom Druckergebnis des Druckers ab.

Danke. Ich werde es mal mit 50% Füllung probieren. Aber erst will ich die Gewindestange wechseln. Ich hoffe, ich finde etwas Gerades

Hey there, Its looking really nice. But i still wonder what program did u use tho desing this part?

I use FreeCAD for the desing.
