Ssorrows, can you delete this previous post?
Got a hard time getting used to all the options.
No, all was good on your reply.
Reread the post about restarting FT, that was be good.
That is why I was hesitant about posting cad info but good to hear improvements are welcome.
If I was smart I would not have bought the kit but paid for lunch for a co-worker every time I needed a 3D print.
Would be saving $$ for the next 10 years, but where is the fun in that.
So how do I tag 3D Printing Guru in this, he was working on his FT-5 R3 version.
Liked some of his mod options
Made a better view of the bottom area.
Showing 2 different spacers 1/4 for the guide rod and 1/8 for the lead screw.
The 20/20 Y-Rail mount rest directly on top of the 500 mm guide rods, this sets the spacing fairly good.
The 2 different spacers allow you to replace the belt without massive re-aligning the lead screw.
After all has been aligned you can even hot-glue the nut in the T-slot in place
Option is to only have a 1/8 spacer but the lead screw needs to be shortened by 3/16 to 1/4" then.
Highlighted line is the belt used in FT-5 R2, I believe 1140mm?
Here are 2 bolts pulling the frame together, front bolt is used after these two are locked.
you got to go back and fort a few times, well I did.
The whole unit felt solid when when assembled without cornet brackets.
Like to hear if you see a difference in print quality
I have no reference since I modded from the start.
Will send you a email with a metal version of the Y-slide to X-rail when I get it done.
Was thinking this is the next delicate area.
