Acrylic Frame Request - Smashed Anet A8

by Murdmac

Well ! that's my 3D printer had it then, I keep my trusty Anet A8 on a desk in my room, it was in the middle of a complex print, and you know you kind off like not to touch anything while its doing the intricate parts, don't lean too hard on the desk next to it etc. Well.... I walked out of my room and caught my foot on the power lead and the whole thing just went! sideways onto the floor, There's hardly a single intact piece of acrylic left.

I thought ebay would be full of spare acrylic parts and frame kits but not a single one! I can find some MDF kits but they don't sit right with me. Wondered if anyone in the UK has an acylic frame kit lying about after upgrading to Aluminium, that I could purchase ?

Y-axis problems during printing

by masssi

Hello I have a ,,big'' problem with my fresh upgraded AM8, but before it was an CTC i3.
In the pictures you can see some ,,steps'' every around 10 layers. I canceled the print, because of course this is not good.
Does anyone have an idea? The y-axis has this problem, not the x axis.
I do not know what informations are relevant, I think the pictures say more than tousends words :)
Thanks in advance!:)
