Notes :

  • tensioning the z-belt should be done in the upward direction, in order to tension against gravity

To-Do

Version 0.2

  • change the aluminium flight case (not cheap) for a regular wooden flight case (easier to use and customize)
  • move the linear rail 5mm closer to the pivot, in order for the end rail (printed part) to play its role of mechanical stop

Version 0.1

  • fine tune E step value (837 for start)
  • test print
  • tweaking RepRap Firmware for the scissor Z... (will need help here)
