Hard to say...I was making several minor adjustments and couldn't seem to solve the problem. I will try again soon.

Thats the one thing about these that drives me crazy, sometimes you get issues and its not fun to figure out...

I just saw this, i use a regular metal one, I've not noticed and issues from using it on mine.

Nothing here yet. I've been in too much pain, and thus have been too exhausted, to do much more than sit and watch YouTube. I haven't even been able to concentrate on just reading about tech stuff. I'll see my back surgeon on Tuesday. Hopefully he can do something (I mean besides another surgery - which is definitely coming soon. :cry: )

I didn't want to walk all over your retro challenge post keeping this going. BUt part of what I was asking when I asked what software you use, was the slicer. What software do you use for slicing?

Pretty sure that it was Cura. Unfortunately, I don't have the room right now to set up my printer, so it's on a back burner for now.

Cura seems to be the defacto standard in slicers.

Chris, No worries, I replied there anyhow. lol I actually used TinkerCad https://www.tinkercad.com/ to create it, using my CF adapter as a basic form to start with. Uses shapes to create stuff, which can be all modified in a good amount of ways. Everything is drap and drop, takes a moment to get used to, esp using the ruler and its MidPoint/Endpoint tool, FYI the one shown is NOT the one your using. :lol: Confusing but once get used to, its not bad. All axis have size, position adjust and rotation for that axis only, along with a pop up box for some other options for the selected object, solid or hole, color, along with and other options the said object might have. I installed the part back into the computer, to test function, and success!, but I put the part into the drive holder to mark the screw holes, which come next, just gotta measure the locations, and the screw hole size.

That's what Elegoo uses, I really like it.
