how do you deal with metal particles on the Y lead screw? has this shown any for of wear?

Hi karl0508,

We haven't ran into any issues with dust or particles on the Y axis yet. Almost all the dust and particles get blocked by the Y axis gantry, since the gantry covers basically the full area that the nut and leadscrew are in contact with.

There are some users that use baffles for their leadscrews, but in my personal opinion, they are not necessary.

Do you have a video of this thing in action? And approximate cost to build?

Hi ConfusedPrinter,

We have lots of videos of the V2 in action here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS4SdQ0sqFhvjitLjh4EsGQ

Approximate cost to build is going to vary depending on a lot of factors. You can check out the BOM and other info on the design at www.sienci.com/open-source however if you need to make an estimate.

Thanks for the link to the videos!
