Beta differences from production unit


#1

I have recently acquired a beta unit and, other than the gearing ration, has anything else changed much? From the research I have done, I see that the hinged portion on mine may have been refined or removed.

It looks like the gear models are not available for download and it is not a problem for me to create new ones with the current ratio if needed.

Hi Mike,

I’m not sure what you mean by “hinged portion” – can you include a photo?

The gear is definitely updated from the beta KS units, but I don’t think the ratios have changed much. We’ve updated the stepper motor, and that changed the overall ratios, but that can be handled in the slicer settings (gcode “M92 Exxxx”).

Cheers,
Charles
