I have decided to build v3.3 and hopefully I will be able to start assembling by January. As long as my current printer doesn't die

Can we get some good pics on wireing the hanger?

So it's hanging can we get some photos of the way the ankers are attached to the hanger and how the hanger is tied to the 3 d lines.

Ok, these ones are the best I have right now:





Basically one pair of for example A-lines enters their closest corner_clamps from below. They then turn 90 degrees towards each other and meet on the upper side of the beam. Tie a loop in the ends of each A-line and attach both to the same beam slider. Slide that beam slider back and forth until your mover is in parallel with your A-anchor linerollers. An attempt to visualize A-line routing from above using Tux Paint:



D-lines enter corner_clamps from above, through the same hole as ABC-lines. Thread D-lines through the tunnel+track and attach (on the inside of the beam) each D-line to its own beam slider. Slide the D-sliders back and forth until your mover is level/horizontal.

Lastly tighten the screws of all six beam sliders.

Some people have asked for better guidance on the ceiling unit layout. I have hesitated with publishing this layout, because D-linerollers are the only ones that need to be placed out precisely. They should be placed out using the alignment methods documented earlier in this thread.

Anyways, I made an orthogonal render png in Openscad:

Are any of the core team using a 3mm e3d vacano with Titan extruder .8 and 1.2mm nozzle? What's your build speed? Also your slicer settings anyone using simplify3d?

We've been using 0.8 and 1.2 nozzles. We've used 1.75 mm filament, but 3 mm is fine too. Speeds from 20 to 60 mm/s. I recommend big layer heigths (> 0.5 mm). Otherwise use same settings as with other printers, just remember to set the correct nozzle size. And be aware that big solid first layers are hard to print. Consider if you can get by with 0 solid first layers.

Thanks by the way the live stream was great

Can you link the parts for the bed ?

What are the differences for the Mechaduinos calibration compared to the live stream?
