    The laser has a simple red and black two wire connector.
    The laser socket on the board has three connectors.

    As a recent and complete convert to delta style printers. Got to say the best solution is the head moving in all three axis.

    well all the makerbot clones and machines based on that design have x&y on the print head and z on the printbed.

    well it's an expensive machine for the print volume. Not one I've ever heard of before- given that there's at least 5 new machines launched each week - that's hardly surprising.

    Meanwhile, back at The Aardvark Burrow, I think I've worked out how to use the 1watt laser from my super tiny laser engraver, with simplify 3d to use the printer for laser engraving.

    Also if you have a tight calibration the bottom layer get's 'smushed'.
    I usually do this deliberately, for things that need extra stick and file the lip off.

    little cable ties are what I'm using to stop the springs walking. Cheap, and effective.
    I know it'e tempting, but sometimes non-3d printed solutions are easier :-)

    they also do that at the bottom. if you slide them up to the top (just tried it) they will rub and catch on the belts - and that's probably a bad thing :-)

    Given that my carriage is rock solid and...

    why ?
    They actually walk their way up the arms anyway.

    And I think if i re-tick 'force retraction between layers, it might also get rid of the stringing.

    some parts are pretty dodgy and I would fill.
    Bear in mind the picture on thingiverse has clearly been filled and painted.

    do you have a small white ptfe tube that sits on top of the nozzle, and guide the filament through the hot end ?

    personally I wouldn't get a ctc.
