    Hi all,I have built one of these with a diamond hot end. I havn't got repetier to build yet. So if anyone has any tips that would be good. I'm using marlin for now. Also I wanted to add some bracing as it tends to wobble a bit. Has anyone made a top z axis mount that rods can be bolted to?And also front bed corner that the other end of the rod can attach to? The speed is a little slow, I'm printing at 50mm/s and had to turn the current up to get that. It will do for now but if anyone is building a new one maybe go for printed bearings and no carrier plate just direct attach to bearings. For that matter you could print some bearings with holders for your plate. You'll need auto bed levelling but I put that on anyway to make it easier to use.

Has anyone else used the diamond hot end, and if so how did you mount your filament spools? There's already 3 extruders on top of the frame, so stromrychels one won't fit. Might need some sort of extension above the extruders or just put behind the printer. Another issues I'm having is the weight, this sucker is heavy and quite awkward to move. Did anyone make some handles or some way to make it easier to transport?
