So we hit a snag with the Bowden extruder design on the DIY 3D QU-BD Twoup, the back and forth action has worn out the pressure fitting on top of the hot end leading to premature failure (half a spool of plastic). So watch as we try to figure what to do!
This is a remix of a design on Thingiverse for the QU-BD OneUp and TwoUp DIY 3D printer to hold the Y Axis belt from slipping. In this design we have added recessed openings to receive #6 nuts and we highly recommend adding this build to your QU-BD OneUp or TwoUp printer to prevent the belt from slipping during fast rapid infills of the Y Axis.
In this episode we start the build of the self-leveling servo & switch combo for the QU-BD TwoUp DIY 3D printer we built a while back. Our hope is this will improve the quality of the prints our prints by adjusting for the level of the QU-BD TwoUp bed. We also have listed the parts below we got from Amazon.

In this episode short we build spring caps for the leveler springs of the QU-BD TwoUp DIY 3D Printer to prevent the bed from slipping during rapid moves typically found when doing in fills when 3D printing objects. You can also find this on Thingiverse at (www.thingiverse.com/thing:1079696)!
So we have been working on the QU-BD TwoUP 3D DIY printer again and one of the thing which we made where retaining cups for the bed springs. We where having issues with the prints shifting as there was play in the (few thousands of an inch) and when the printer did infills the alignment would jump as the bed shift (assume it slid on the springs). With any luck this will reduce the issue. Also keep eye out for a video on this too.
In this episode of DIY 3-D tech.com will look at building a 3-D printed board for dual relay controller. As part of this we also have to use care is this relay board will switch line voltages so if you notice we’ve left the bottom on the board to protect and insulate from this. It’s also worth noting that conductive plastic should not be used print support boards for electronic components. In addition if you’re interested in finding out about this board you can get more information at this link (amzn.to/1KTA5nQ)
