Re: Z end stop clamp too big?

Hi there, I had the same issue in my kit (which I received 10 days ago). My clamp was too big. Even though it was completely tightened it still slid freely on the shaft. I ended up using some insulation tape over the shaft and its fine now. Yeah, because it comes from the same STL file, that is odd ...

Re: Wobble-Free Z Knob

Thank you Pyronaught!!!

Should I upgrade to latest Marlin firmware?

Hi all, Had my M2 for a couple of weeks and was wondering if it's worth upgrading from the stock Marlin (1.0.0RC2) firmware to the latest prod release, 1.0.2? Is it just a matter of updating the newer code with the info from the Makergear wiki? (see bottom of post) I am still very much a newb to 3D ...
