    Me too. Waiting for parts... Did your z-stabilizers get broken as well? Those are the plastic brackets at the bottom of the vertical smooth rods. I hope our wait is a short one!

    Still no sign of my new heated bed so found a piece of aluminium and drilled it off to suit. Calibrated it but did not stick to the bed using hairspray, tried several times then span the nuts out of the bottom of the slides(why does it do this, did it twice at apparently random times) re calibrated and in frustration used a thin coating of spray contact adhesive and hay presto it stuck (not surprising really). Printed the 20mm test cube and it printed really well. Tried to get it off the bed but was stuck fast and I chipped the top, then used a drop of acetone on the base and it fell off on its own and did not affect the PLA. I made a mess of trimming the bottom using a scalpel but overall I am extremely happy with the result and the pics do not do it justice it is absolutely accurate and the corners are sharp and straight, one thing is though on the top where it finishes off it finished just before reaching the corner any ideas why ?

    Print looks nice. I have the same problem where it doesn't finish the top infill, or if it does it plunges the nozzle into the print.

    Not sure what's causing either.
