For those of you building SFX-100 rigs (or adding traction loss / belt tensioners), I do have a small quantity of SFX-100 shields left over from the last group buy. If you are in need of a shield, please send me a PM for more details. Thanks!

Hi guys,
I've been getting pretty good progress on improving my 3D prints, but for some strange reason, I get this weird impairment on every printed copy of the motor mount. It's pretty much on the exact same spot and same pattern. Anyone else experienced this issue?

FYI: printed my first motor mount and got a funny seam as well. I checked the gcode: it's not in the code. My guess it's the point where the printhead moves to the next layer. Nothing to worry about. Printer: Ender 3 Pro, slicing software: PrusaSlicer 2.0, filament: Extrudr NX-2, layer height 0.2.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank @Pyronious for not only designing the board, putting a lot of work into documentation and video tutorials, but also for organizing and supporting the group purchase and shipping.

Together with Stefan H., @HoiHman , @C64 , @RowanH and @acekrusty23 more than 400 SFX-Shields were ordered, distributed worldwide and shipped to users all over the world.

Anyone who has ever organized a group buy knows how much work it takes to organize the orders, collect addresses, manage the receipt of money, organize shipping routes, handle customs, pack everything and finally ship it.

And these gentlemen have done so in over 400 cases, my utmost respect and thanks for your work and time.

That artifact is called a Z seam. It comes from your slicing software. Technically, it is in your g-code (but not the STL file). Set your perimeter (or layer) start points to “random” to eliminate this.

Has anyone used the item24 profiles or have gotten a quote? I put in a quote but accidentally put in the wrong length of 100mm, but for 4 profiles it only came out to 80 shipped to me, given the unit price, 155-160 should be the correct price, this makes it cheaper than ordering from kinetik if based in the US... no?

I bought a single length of ITEM24 profile in the UK that I built the first actuator from. Get in contact with your local ITEM supplier you can probably get the order changed. I would reccomend getting ITEM to quote for tapping the holes for you as well unless you have the correct tap. My ITEM actuator has been running without any problems for nearly 6 months.

What did you use as a replacement for the slot nuts that you’re supposed to order from Kinetik too?
 
Just curious if anyone has experienced issues with the SFX 100 causing issues with power line ethernet ?

I realize this is an edge case but that's what I use to get network service to the basement where the rig is.

How are you finding the screen mounted to the moving platform?

I'm busy designing my system now, (Ive got the same screen), also mounted to the platform in the design, as that made the most sense to me, but having the screen moving around could potentially cause issues (vibration damage) ?

I definitely prefer this setup, as opposed to a static mounted screen … ?
