I 'm french,sorry for my English level.
I have my Da Vinci since one week, I 've added shim in pulleys for reduce movement
Today I looked the bed to reduce problem, the bed moves from left to right. I found a temporary solution, I added two pieces of paper around the two rings
I tried to create a 3D part but the movement is too small. In the meantime, I have a bed that does not move
Do you have the same problem?
Thank you !
For the bed/glass, just take the 4 screws in each corner, *slightly* bend the metal tabs down, and tighten the screws back in place. Don't bends the tabs to much as to much pressure may crack the glass.
The"ring" you are describing is a bushing that is being used as a slide bearing. Someone in this forum posted speculation that they should be glued in place. These bearings are in the x and z Carriage.
I received my Da Vinci 1.0 less than 2 days ago (it's my first) and I've noticed the exact same problem (not really sure if this affects the printings, but I'd guess it does?). The print bed moves a little when pushed from a side. Nothing appears to be loose, but somehow there is some slack in the right rod. I don't really understand the OP's workaround, would certainly love some more detailed pictures. Or if anyone else has an alternative solution, I'd love to hear it.
Also, is this something common to all Da Vinci printers or just a few unlucky of us?
edit: ahh now I've seen a few other threads discussing the same issue, and so it seems it can also be fixed with just a few drops of glue on the bearings of the right rod. Still wondering whether or not this happens on every unit though...
Everything you describe is normal. - Its that way with all of the 1.0 printers. I do not know if it is fixed with other versions.
Ill post some pictures in the next few days if no one else does.
Understood, thank you!
And would you say that this is worth fixing in order to achieve decent printing quality or in reality it won't have much effect?
Fixing the rod tolerance will help reduce/eliminate z wobble. The glass isn't usually a problem unless it is really loose.
I had been considering making a bearing mount for the top of the threaded rod. I don't like how the weight of the whole platform sits on the stepper.
My plan is to use one of the extra bearings I got for the y rails. A couple jam nuts to secure it to the top of the threaded rod. Then 3d print a mount to hold the OD of the bearing snug...
