Not a lot of progress on printing. After installing linear rails and direct drive option from printermods.cm, there was a lot of tuning to do. The rubber mounted linear rails for Y axis needed a lot of adjustment to reduce ringing. Not running with a direct drive extruder, just the stock Creality one. To mount a direct drive, I need to print some parts so needed to get things running first.
Latest test cube is looking good so I should be able to start printing Hevort parts tomorrow.
As @beano said, I have plenty of time before my parts arrive. :(
Regards
Geoff

Lots of black extrusion delivered today.
Parts printed in yellow make a nice contrast

Making headway with the printed parts but about to start on a 19 hour print - motor mount.
I've never run the Ender 5 overnight, making sure the smoke alarm is on :)

I should use a few of those hours to work on my photography ...

Success with the first motor mount! At least I know now that the Ender 5 will print all night (in cold weather) without a problem.
Only another 40 hours of printing to go :roll:

Just had the linear rails and ball screws delivered. At this rate, it's the little things like bearings and magnets that are going to hold me up!
Should have the t-nuts and corner brackets on Monday.

Anxiously waiting for more!

Well I've run out of yellow filament and it will take a week to get some more,
Not enough pars to start building yet so might make a few mods to the Ender 5.

I designed this PCB so I could have a 5V supply for the Raspberry Pi and a 12V supply so I can fit some silent fans - not available in 24V.
Just need to solder in some JST connectors. Contains 2, DC-DC converters.

Nice board with the dc-dc converters ;)

I have a few of those here as well, but will probably just use a proper 3-5A MW psu to power the pi4b. Let’s see :)

Should have read the BOMs more carefully regarding the number of t-nuts I'll need.
I didn't notice the note that the given quantity for these was based on a 315x315 build. As mine is 350x350, going to need to order more t-nuts :oops:

On the plus side got the linear rails and ballscrews cleaned and lucubrated.

Geoff
