So I’ve built my Wilson for a while now but haven’t been able to perfect my bed leveling due to a variety of factors, from material to its design.
I’m using 6mm MDF as per the BOM and have a normal 200x300 bed, using the mk2 pcb heated bed, which I’m looking to upgrade to the mk3 soon. Being in SEA, humidity is a problem for MDF and my bed is prone to warping. As for the design, the legs are the weakest point, especially the long sides which I can see have been bent considerably in my case. From what I’ve read so far, 3 point leveling is the better choice. With regards to the carriage, 3 bearings is enough as opposed to 4 too? Would pillowblocks be a better choice?
So I’m thinking of a solution which can allow 3 point leveling, as well as mounting of pillowblocks if possible. What I’ve managed to find so far is this design by andreq: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1501382
and this mod of the prusa i3 plate: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1369542
I’ve access to lasercutting, tho limited to woods and acrylics as well as a drillpress and the bandsaw. So I’m not too sure where to start tbh, work on a design from scratch using MDF/plywood, or mod a i3 plate like above? Hoping to get some insights here!
