    I don't have any warping/curling on my prints but have a thermal runaway whenever the filament fan is on at 100%. If I set it at 50% speed, no thermal runaway...maybe I need to isolate the fan wires away from the thermistor's wires.

    I also keep the extruder fans on at 100 %, all the time during printing.
    didn't notice any problems, but that might be because we are using different kinds of extruders.

    I love this build, it looks amazing and well thought out!

    I might have missed it since I was reading this while very tired last night but What kind of electronics are you using? I am planning a production environment that will utilize at least 4 printers either side by side or stacked; That said would you thing two of these could be "stacked" by using longer pieces of 4040 for the corners and some sort of floor/wall brackets to minimize vibrations? Or do you think the jerk from the multiple units would degrade accuracy? I am reading what has to be every build on here now and definitely find the work you all put in to be nothing short of amazing.

    Where did you find a heating bed big enough for your build plate?

    Good afternoon.
    I am interested in building his 3D printer.
    With regard to the mechanics, the components that you described are sufficient? because I see that some components are missing such as the supports for the screw-nutscrew or like printer legs.
    I am Italian, and I apologize for the incorrect English.
    thank you very much for the help. If possible, how can I get these missing components?
    regards:)

    Looks like a cartesian style printer to me. It is definitely not a CoreXY mechanism.

    So... any more large prints made with this behemoth? I'm very interested to see more. I'm also looking for a large printer (500*500*700) or something along those lines and this looks promising. Is the stationary bed a plus compared to C-bots, with beds of that size (500 to 600 mm)? Or at least as a trade off for a printhead that also moves upwards, as well as forward and back, and side to side.

    When will this project be "finalized" so people can start building this?
