Re: Building my Orca - some issues & questions - my experien
I've downloaded the new update pdf for the ORCA v0.2 ! This is very clear and would've helped me a lot if I had it from the beginning on
But it clarified a few things; for the extruder, the bolts I've received were 4x60, on the drawing it is marked 4x70; this is the reason why I had problems with the springs ! It confirmed my own thoughts, last week I've finally ordered some 4x70 bolts, after testing 4 different types of springs. I consider this problem now solved.
Next problem is the correct placement & fixation-method of the opto-flags; are they mentioned in the updated v0.2 pdf ? (what page ?)
What is the best method to fix them ? Use a Tie-wrap & hot glue ?
Do I have to use the aluminium flags or can I use any (non-transparent) material ? (it's
optical - not magnetic I assume).
I've built everything with the info & data I had available at the moment and looked at all pictures I found. Everything looks nice, paralell and level. But ofcourse I've put the fan & the extruder stepper with wires pointing in the wrong direction. (I will correct that)
I've noticed no major friction when I move the parts - I've tested the stepper-motors and they work fine. (except the extruder). What voltage-setting do I need to use for the steppers ? I've left them in the initial 12 o-clock setting ?
I just hope that now that I have the correct measurements from the new pdf, that this corresponds with my build ...
One last question for Camiel: are you planning a conversion-kit from v0.2 to v0.3 ? The v0.3 looks somuch more easier and stabler ?
Any tips, hints are always welcome ...
