Replacement for Wheels?

by MecannibalVector

Hi All,

After digging into my 2 i3's pretty deeply over the last month I've come to the conclusion that one of the biggest generators of artifacts, be they banding, salmon skin, irregularities, in the X and Z directions is the wheels shipped with these kits. They are unfortunately cheap and not manufactured to the highest standards. About what you'd expect given the price. I've actually had to get FLSun to ship me a bag of replacements because of this, but only a few in the entire bag were near being 'true'.

Has anyone had any luck with replacing these from a 3rd party? I've seen Delrin wheels (well, supposedly Delrin) on AliExpress, but has anyone tried them? Any good?

I have a redesigned carriage system I'd like to publish that greatly improves X and Z rigidity, but the wheels are doing the same thing they have on every carriage I've tried and caused it to move in ways it shouldn't.

FLSUN Prusa i3+ Large print end stops not homing (SOLVED)

by lordofnightmares

Hi everyone

I'm finally reaching out regarding an issue im having with my printer among many that have with this printer, so far i've corrected many. One problem thats persists regardless of me using the marlin software provided from FLSUN. I'm using this printer as a single extruder machine, and when I request auto home on all axis they all work excluding the X axis. Even when I request only the X axis to home it moves a couple of inches towards the end stop and stops never nearing the the endstop. If any one can point out where the problem is and how to correct it, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks
