Yeah I'm going to print this and see if it works on my machine. No one can say a solution will not work 100% of the time. Not all machines are built exactly the same with 100% the same parts. If it doesn't work I'll go back to my stock setup. Whats the loss? A few cents in material? Totally worth the experiment. Update. Yes it did work on my printer. It's crazy how bent the rods are.

Thankyou for your feedback! :)

You guys really know NOTHING in mechanic ! Go through all the anti wobble solutions found here and you will see that for some, the exact opposite is presented as the magic solution to wobble. NONE OF YOU UNDERSTAND the problem, you just try and hope ! Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't just because the conditions are different !

Fact is, by making the screw top free, YOU JUST REMOVED ONE cause of wobble. You just CORRECT ONE BASIC DESIGN error done by crappy vendors but there are others !.

Here you will see that people having wobble despite the screw top being free, put a bearing to block it from wobbling, thus claiming they have the magic solution !
Like this guy : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2248517

Now this system and plenty of copies of it, unfortunately many poorly made, is fair in mitigating the wobbling without eliminating the causes : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:808509/#comments

To get rid of what cause the wobbling and many others issues, one has to redesign the Z axis as I did. It requires some skill most of you don't seem to have based on your remarks
So, LEARN MECHANIC and at least read what has been done before and compare. Too bad but, the majority of what is published here is junk, an insult to generation of mechanics, from the shop to the design bureau and teachs you wrong (in fact like the libtards who have destroyed the education system in the West !)

Im sorry I disagree with you.

I have already built a lot of robots, humanoids too, and I wanted to have the best MECHANIC solution there. Im only 17 YO and I try to give the best.

I understand that with bearings is everything better but I think at this problem when we use bearing we will have the same wobble as before. Because the rod where the Y axis travels is very slant. I have already tried what you sent in the comment but it wasn't helpful there has been the problem yet.

Since I have plant this it works very well. If you don't like this please you will scroll away :)

Thanks for understanding,

Many people disagree with me and I don't care. I care about FACTS, LOGIC, THEORY and EXPERIENCE.
You just show you fail to understand what I wrote and I have to tell you, be ready to be kicked in the butt if you keep this attitude in an engineering school.
May be short term attention span syndrome, that prevented you from going through what I wrote and references ?
At 17 I was already able to rebuild a car engine and I was listening to people who knew and to double check other sources in case of disagreement.

Right I dont want write this away....

Im from Hungary thats why I may not understood what you wrote. Im in an electotechnic school and not in mechatronic or something. Yes I not always agree with people who "has" some work experience and they think that they knows more than the another....
I have a lot of robots which were planned by me. And because of our attitude to me im going to upload even more of my robot plans and then you can write your opinion to them. .

Your sincerely,

Dude, don't sweat MKSA he goes around trolling everyone with that tries to do anything worthwhile to improve a Geeetech on here... he literally gets irate if someone uses any solution to the problems other than his own. I totally agree with him on technical points and find his solutions to be actually very good... but why the heck he feels the need to berate and belittle everyone that doesn't see the world his way is beyond me. The fact his that this is a simple solution to the problem and his solution is quite radical in comparison; it requires a lot more modification and non-printed parts. I think people would embrace MKSA's work if he would just treat others with a bit more respect, but I have a feeling he cannot see what he doing by behaving this way... he may be intelligent in technical aspects but he just turns everyone off from even considering his ideas by acting like a child that needs everyone in the room to see and hear him. I've bit my tongue for a long time on here because I don't like to say anything about people, but I've read countless comment after comment from him on almost every Geeetech related post on Thingiverse (especially the Z wobble related stuff), and frankly I'm tired of seeing his negativity. It's one thing to promote one's work, but a whole other to go around bad-mouthing others and telling everyone they're stupid if they do anything except your solution!

This fix works 100%. It is a very big difference in print quality and there are no more wobble-waves in the prints. Quick to print, easy to replace and well worth a try.


I dont know what your problem is. At me,that was the best solution what I could.

gybalazs - Awesome solution to wobble problem. Forget about MKSA

What a joke joke ! Gee not tech at all !
Why do people keep coming with stupid solutions that lure beginners and make them loose their time.

Best fix ever, had lines like the rods, now more lines.
Thank you
