Title: decided the world hates me lol New direct extruder
Post by: HobGoblyn 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.
