Re: My extensive modifications and upgrades to M2 Printer

Ohh I understand what you're saying now.. Yes that might be caused by the sag.. The stock linear rod ball bearings are not particularly rigid. I have not printed many objects large/heavy enough to have that be an issue. This mod might not completely eliminate that problem as it does not support the ...

Re: Maghold Build Plate?

I'm the one who authored the link on first post. The spring steel with neodymium magnet combo keeps the plate flat even after dozens of prints with no signs of change.
