    Hi all. My Robo 3d R1+ makes an annoying squeak noise everytime the z axis goes down. What should I use to lubricate it with and where should I apply the oil? Thanks!

    Edit: I have "tube lube" that came with the printer so I just need to know where to apply it and how much. Thanks :)

    Lithium grease (should what was in the tube) put a bit on the threads and run the Z up and down.
    I'd put a blob* above the carriage and run it up then another below and run it back down.


    *there is no precise amount.

    You could also put it on the z axis stabilizers, but definitely put it on the z axis where the threads are.
