Yes, that is absolutely correct! What I'm actually worried about is the "deformation" of the frame when pushed about. In other words it's perfectly fine if things flex back and forth when put under abnormal stress but it would be nice if they always returned to the same exact position. Otherwise the calibration gets lost. Of course you should not put your printer under any abnormal stress but that's exactly what you do when for example removing prints from the bed or just accidentally bumping into build platform corners while changing filaments or whatever. I'm not overly concerned about this flex and give since people are getting excellent results with their Felixes! I know mine is capable of just as good prints.dognotdog wrote:Rigidity as in a Mill isn't required, as ideally no force is exerted by the print head onto the bed.
Finished the wiring yesterday, no hassle there. The electronics box is laid out in kinda funny way because it basically forces you to route all the thick heating resistor wires over the board, blocking air flow and making closing the box lid hard. To me it would have seem a better solution to route those cables around (or under!) the RAMPS board rather than over it, but there's no space. If I route them around between RAMPS and the box fan, I'm disturbing the airflow really bad. And on the other side of the board there no space between the board and wall of the box. I didn't manage to do the wiring inside the box too nicely but everything outside the box is super tidy!
I did the finishing touches to the printer and ran into one more problem. The Z-axis endstop vane hits the optical port. The vane arm is just slightly too long. I'm not quite sure if I should file the vane a bit thinner or if I should move the optical port a hair further away. Maybe I move the port to make sure there's enough clearance between the port and the vane both ways.
