Assembling my first X-Carve and I’m questioning the V-groove wheels inside the x-carriage. At first the carriage did not want to slide onto the gantry so I adjusted the wheels to allow the biggest gap for the gantry. X-carriage will slide onto gantry but I’m unsure if it’s not moving freely enough. I’m able to slide it back and forth with one finger but it does take some pressure to get it to slide. I’m maxed out on my adjustments and I’ve gone back to ensure that I’ve assembled the x-carriage correctly. So how freely should the carriage move on the gantry? Is some resistance ok?
Thank you all ahead of time! Very excited to use this machine!
I went back and made sure all the hardware was installed correctly and adjusted the v groove wheels a little. Talked with inventables service and I came to the conclusion that I was just being overly cautious. Mine takes a little pressure to move but moves smoothly.
