I’ve waited all my life for this moment… Not really, but I have waited a few months. A friend was able to lend me some T5 belts and pulleys while I wait for my GT2 belts so I could test run the printer now.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7u0VJD2rUM]
For this quick test I just threw the printer together. The rod clamps aren’t tightened down, the belts weren’t adjusted or tightened at all – This was just a quick test to see how it all works.
So how did it work? Bloody well! I’m very happy with the movement, there was quite a bit of noise and a little slop but that’s mostly because I haven’t tightened anything up.
I should be getting my GT2 belts next week, which I’m over the moon about. I was told I wouldn’t get the belts for another month or more! So I should have this printer printing in a month or so (I hope).
Anyway’s what are you doing reading this?! Enjoy the video!
