    There are no parts or belts rubbing, I will try swapping another motor out.

    The belt tensioner pulley is off center but I doubt if it is the cause of the noise as the belt is not too tight.

    Malukk, is it safe to take the stepper motor to bits for example does it have timing sensors that need to be replaced in the correct position?
    Thanks.

    That'll do for 2017 - here's to 2018 and hoping for some flying weather!

    Wow Kk you really went the distance on this one and those results sound way too familiar. It seems like every time we have to flash up a router, a gateway or firewall we stumble around awhile digging through all the subtle "improvements". Meanwhile everything down stream is on hold.... argh.

    Wishing you well with flashing back now.

    Love it!!:D
    Now I am thinking if I had the cowl which is really sexy, I would have ago at building the rest in depron as I couldn`t trust any of my printers to make the whole thing.
    Did you have many problems?

    Only self inflicted and a couple of slicing errors. Other than that it printed pretty well once I'd sorted the hot end out :)

  8. Its safe to take it off. Its just like a typical motor with a lot of magnetized stators... are you planning to take off the one thats causing problems to see if anything wrong on inside?
     
  9. Looks nice!!
    Thats also on my build list this winter.

  10. Yeah, there’s always something that makes you go back. But its fun to tinker nonetheless. I tried some more things that the “gurus” recommended with little luck. Guess they’ll have to figure it out, not my cup of tea (yet).
    I did my upgrade after a long time and thats why I havent even used the 1.1.6 version. I plan on flashing with this tomorrow. All my friends are having a get together so we are having a new year party. I’ll be back in service tomorrow!

    Just be careful opening up the hinge holes - 1mm piano wire digs a good hold in your finger when you slip ;)

  12. I keep a note of that. Any other tips that I should keep in mind? Esp. Slicing wise? Like any weak points?

  13. Remember you have Print Profiles and Printer Profiles, you need to set those up before starting to print. ;)

  14. I stuck myself with a .40 nozzle drill bit, stuck in my finger really good. :D :D

    I sliced using Simplify 3D so thin wall is kind of easy in that. You should be able to use the default settings for the most part though. I just have to alter a lot for speed and retraction with my Mk10 hot end...
    First landing will be the big test - will the landing gear handle it :D

  17. Did you use pla or petg for landing gear?

  18. All I did was go to pick it up off the floor and it went straight in with no effort. :D :D

    This 1mm piano wire was nicely sharpened up so it went in the side of my finger and you could see a good quarter inch line where the wire had gone in. That hurt for a few days that's for sure!

    I've used PLA+ so quite a lot stronger than normal PLA but I might print a few sets off to take with me on the maiden for safety reasons ;)
