    Update on First layer printing.
    We are back to printing when we first got the Robo R1 with enclosed bottom.
    We have had Hexagon hot end problems, we have had to season the hot end and make a oiler for the hot end.
    We have tried to figure out how the bed leveling works on the Robo R1
    We have had bed problems with the Y axis and problem with the Z axis and throwing it's nuts.
    We have had problems with how the cable lays under the bed and feed under the robo.
    We have had to replace the fan on hot end.
    We fix the hexagon hot, tighten everything down, and stop the oozing out of filament.
    Now the last problem that has hopefully put us back to where we started is, we had to replace a 2 of the bearing on one side of the Y axis rods.
    I'm printing a spool holder for the top of the Robo R1 and it looks really good.
    Now I can start to really tune up the Robo.
    I would like to thank everyone on the forum who has answer my trouble calls, without you I would be in deep dudu, please keep up the good work.
    I hope soon I can become more of a answer person instead of a question one.

    As to the bearing issue, I live in a humid climate and I've found the best solution for me is to keep some garage door chain oil handy and drop it down the threads of the Z rods every now and then, when it gets noisy.

    The linear bearings that Robo uses by default are on the cheap side.
    I upgraded mine, no longer an issue (and they are pre-lubricated, no lube needed).
    If you are using theirs, yes.. lubricate them periodically.

    Do you have a link to where you got your bearings from Mark? I had a look locally and the cheapest I found was $20 each for decent ones, others were $35 each.
