<p>your settings are right.. it's a design problem. If you watch good, you will see that the bearings support go wider when we insert bearings, then it's perfectly normal it bends the middle part ( unfortunately for the design..it's a fault , or a bug ) .&nbsp;</p><p>I intend to update to a flat U for the right part . Then we will have an iso system. The left part constraints to 1 degre ( Z slide only ) and the right part would constraint to Z rotation only. This way, we don't have this extra constraint of the distance between the two rods.&nbsp;</p><p>I just did this for hte head part and the two X rods. The top is now free to move verticaly, &nbsp;that limits problems from extra constraint ( distance between two rods that must be the same in three separated parts ).&nbsp;</p><p>Well..globaly, i need to rework this part .&nbsp;</p><p>There's an update coming : &nbsp;L and R written on parts to easy recognize left and right, new inductive support , a little more solid and a few adjustments .. nothing new for Z.&nbsp;</p>

<p>@<a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.youmagine.com/users/fbolzoni">FBolzoni</a>&nbsp;: We didn't had so much problems printing those parts ? all the supports are made with 45 degres angle under to be able to print without support.&nbsp;<br></p><p>about the forum, we have one you can find from smartfriendz.com ( link on top ) , you will see mostly french but everyone speaek english there . Also, there is a smartrap forum in reprap.org with a few makers working there .&nbsp;</p>

<p>Thank you :)</p><p>I don't see what difference GT2.5 can make in parts design ? it is also 6mm width, no ?&nbsp;</p><p>Maybe i miss a feature ?&nbsp;</p>

<p>Hi,&nbsp;</p><p>It is made on purpose :&nbsp;</p><p>- the head top is constraining the 2 top bearings on only one axis rotation &nbsp;( around X axis) . We noticed when printing 3 parts (Yslides and Head) , you willnever have a perfect alignment beetween rods,so the bearings on the X axis will force . With this design, the two top bearings can be adjusted to the good rods distance.</p><p>- about the proxysensor, we are now re-using the nuts , so a half is enough to fix it ( note it's a liiitle smal actually and will be extended, but not to the full circle.&nbsp;</p><p><br></p><p>What is not made for now , is the 8 , 10 mm options for rods ( I need a second design pass to extend the supports) . That will come very soon now .</p>

<p>oops , sorry Mateus :) I think i was tired when i posted that , i know perfectly it's you who made this update .</p><p>Eventually, i will mix it in here of course. It's a very great addition ! &nbsp;It's just that the production of smartrapcores takes us all our time lately, so i didn't have time to work on the model .</p><p>Soon to come a new option for MK8 for the extruder ( this is what we sell now) and &nbsp;double pressfit to be more easy to put the filament under the extruder ( it's quiet hard to find now ) .&nbsp;</p><p>Some accessories too :&nbsp;</p><p>- support for filament roll inside the box</p><p>- box for ramps and support for LCD.</p>

<p>Hi Rein,</p><p>sorry for the missing update. &nbsp;The threaded Z part will be removed for a little time because I integrated a little too fast this mod by dhinn ( wich is very nice mod by the way ) and i had some problems with the main model.</p><p>I will first re-publish a cleaned version and then re integrate. In the meantime, he indeed made a fork and published the mod on his repo, so you can use this one.</p><p>thank you</p>

<p>I agree it's not really wonderful, but think the rod will come right on top of the steppers , so this thin wall shouldn't be a problem.</p><p>To make it more "clean", I need to put the road in front of the stepper and this will change the all structure ( size of wood box, slideY,bearingsXY..etc). It will be done, but i need a little time.</p><p>thank you&nbsp;</p>

<p>Heee, sorry i come late to see it ( was lost in production here :) . It's great one . thank you :)</p><p>I'm happy you like it.</p>
Commented on Smartcore over 4 years ago
<p>still not updated, sorry. I was late because of the production. I will clean up the file to have stilll threaded Z , but I need to recalculate all this part ( actually it's not wrong but bad positioned).</p><p>The print width/height gives the real print diimensions. To see the &nbsp;rods / wood/ belt dimansions, please choose the option " walls and rod sizes"</p>

<p>i'm working on all Z placement again with diferent options. I didn't noticed at first , but the new Z options made some mistakes in Ztop, Zbottom placement regarding to back wood and Z rod.</p><p>I must check better before merging i think :)&nbsp;</p>
