ABS printing with “slurry”
Please look at:
checked this easy, low cost method for adhesion to a glass printer
bed, gluing parts together and filling cracks.
ABS Warp Reduction by added Pull-Down Clamps
There are already dozens of advices how to reduce ABS warps, here my contribution with experimental data!
Please look at the pdf attachment
The warping problem is solved now with pull-down clamps, glued to the bed with ABS Juice.
Now I construct a perfect “wind shield cover” over the JGaurora 5, tested carefully with an artificial near-by smoke generator.
You will not never believe how cold air enters by tiny slits through the protective cover to the bed with ABS-samples!
rods tuning by clamps preventing x-offset with less friction
observed many times an x-offset, with well cleaned and lubricated
my wife and I have observed that the x-rods are not parallel.
two clamps, manufactured by ABS 3D-printing, this problem is solved
now by tuning the x-rods parallel within 0.01 mm.
look at the attached report and the gcode-file
you for adding the GCode for the production of the x-axis clamps to
is now the STL file .

my more accurate results about the compression of rods at the left
the rods on the left side needs forces of about 25-30 N!
with the upper original JGaurora spare part axial ball bearing,
loaded by (original 25 N vertical force, due to non-parallel x-axis)
shows a horizontal axial friction of about 1.5 N with a lot of
(or minor) vertical radial forces the horizontal axial friction is
that the original JGaurora axial bearing works fine if not overloaded
(with its tiny balls) by excessive radial forces!
x-rods are well parallel adjusted to 35 +/-0.05 mm the x-axis works
fine, no excessive lubrication required.
