Buying a Rapman

RepRap Blog

There are currently two full kit Reprap machines, the Makerbot and the Rapman. when I made the decision to buy a full, separate printer a few days ago I decided to go with the Rapman. The Rapman choice hinged primarily on what appears to me to be much more personally familiar PIC-based electronics used in the Rapman. It was one thing to know intellectually that the Rapman could run autonomously from an SD card.

A Z-Axis Wobble Limiter Proposal

3D Printer Users

Pulled back a bit, we can see how shallow the wobble is in the case of my RapMan. There are even fixes that you can download to replace the default Z-Axis system that came with your RapMan. They require taking your RapMan apart to replace the Z-Axis lifts on all four corners of the RapMan. My goal, in pondering a solution was to find a way to minimize or eliminate wobble WITHOUT taking the RapMan apart.
