Felix 2.0 / Z-Axis bearing problem

Post by pnypny »

Hi, I'm new with Felix 2.0... I assembled it and now it's time to calibrate it. My problem is, if I lift the table so that the hot end would touch the table, the Z-axis bearing would leave the rail for about 5-10mm. I've allready liftet it a bit over the rim, but than I see the first ball inside... :shock: Is this normal? Shall I lift the hole rail a bit? I would be very pleased about any hints...

HI Pnypny,

Normally the balls shouldn't be seen when the z-axis is fully up, Did you mount a low amount of washers under the bed? It would be no problem to raise the reail 5-10mm

Happy to hear about your success pnypny! My 2.0 is already in the mail and I am absolutely stoked to get started! How's the noise by the way? Does the extra bearing make it even quieter? I see myself doing a lot of overnight prints.
