decided the world hates me lol New direct extruder
« on: September 03, 2021, 05:55:47 pm »
Watched a ton of vids, decided to get myself a BIQU H2 direct drive extruder.

Contacted company to see if it was the upgraded version, they said upgraded version hasn't reached the UK yet, but if there's a problem, they will send me the upgraded gears when they arrive.

So it arrived yesterday, opened box, it is upgraded version (silver gears not black) and could hear something loose inside.  So opened it up, only to find one of the screws that holds the stepper motor on to be loose (as in not in the hole at all).

Put it in the hole, absolutely zero thread in it, surely someone must have noticed this during manufacturing etc, then again who knows.

Probably would work fine with 3 bolts holding motor on, but £72, I expect it to be undamaged on delivery.  So I returned to Amazon (3rd party seller fulfilled by Amazon), no problem there. 

But when I bought it, there was a code for 20% off, if I try to buy again it wont give me the 20% offer, but if I go to the Amazon UK website without logging on, it will.  Must be one discount per person.  Time to phone daughter and get her to buy it for me.  Why is it nothing seems to go smoothly anymore lol

I'm pretty sure 3D printing is just one long continuous exercising in annoyance and frustration.

so does ee, to non-enthusiasts...

BIQU H2 direct drive extruder... Probably would work fine with 3 bolts holding motor on, but £72, I expect it to be undamaged on delivery.
its just an overpriced version of this... MK8 Extruder Kit Head buying overpriced from china expecting their Q&C on par with America is surefire for frustration.. ymmv.

(ps: enthusiasts will dismantle a perfectly fine unit for the love of it, how ironic.. aka "dont turn it on take it apart")
It's extremely difficult to start life.. one features of nature.. physical laws are mathematical theory of great beauty... You may wonder Why? our knowledge shows that nature is so constructed. We simply have to accept it. One could describe the situation by saying that... (Paul Dirac)

I must admit that’s when I just need to get something done I either use a bureau or an old Stratasys printer I picked up on eBay for next to nothing which may not have the latest cutting edge resolution but just works!
