    Just sent a test message from safari. You should try running things from multiple browsers on your own computer to verify operation before requesting people do it for you.

    The "Contact" link below is not working either.

    So gave support a call, nothing really conclusive. Besides the reinstall the printer stuff not much was suggested. Cool guys tho. Got a Skype appointment for tomorrow set up, hopefully we get something figured out.

    They have different levels of support staff I imagine.
    Good luck.

    So, just got off skype with kevin. He seems to think that the trim pot for the x axis may be bad and got one shipped out for me. Now just gotta wait for it to show up. Gotta say, their tech support is really helpful.

    Oh what a lovely day! The new part fixed my issues! The new stepper motor driver for the X axis got my printer better than new (considering it was broken when it showed up).

    If anyone has X axis issues with chatter and dramatic drift during prints, this may be the cause. I'll upload a pic of the first print tomorrow.

    Glad to hear your up and running. Always a good idea to have some spare parts ready.

    Yeah, I might just stock up on the drivers, they're cheap enough. Maybe some of the other tid bits.

    Thanks guys, you were a great help.

    One other question, is there a specific way the pot on the driver supposed to be adjusted?
