Good news, everyone! Schorsch is now living and working at OIST, Okinawa, Japan. Don’t worry about his wooden body, the Lab he’s in has a nice dry atmosphere and he shares it with a lot of far more expensive stuff. So far he’s doing a good job, but the fancy new place with ocean view has a steady cold breeze from the AC above so i will have to do something about that.
He survived the 14hrs+ in a plane with minor injuries on Z. Luckily the parts that broke were meant to break in case of failure and i am quite proud that there were no further problems due to the loose, rocking Z-axis. X and Y arrived fully working, even the lines haven’t jumped off any bearing. Remember to fix EVERY part that can move when you put your Printer on an international trip!
