    Thatís what Iím using per the pdf from the configurator, 2 walls 20% fill. PLA+ @ 200C the rest of it is beautiful, no interference between the two parts. Bottoms of the holes look fine. Iím wondering if I should reduce the bridge flow rate and or add support to the holes. Ignore the flash from the brim, they just came off the printer.

    The only other thing I can think of is the slicer settings. What slicer are you using?

    Part cooling?

    Or use tree supports.

    I can generate support for bridges and if I slice doing so, it does add support to the holes. Part cooling is at 100% fan speed.

    I dont have experience with Prusa Slicer. I have tried Slic3r and didn't like it. It probably just needed to he calibrated and tuned. I use Cura and it just plane works from the get go.

    Slic3r is nice because it can explode multipart stls. So there is that benefit.

    PrusaSlicer is just a version of Slic3r. As for Cura, I have to use an old version as for some reason later versions result in poor print quality with my f/w. Iíve wasted countless hours with Cura chasing print quality issues. Iíve sliced the part with both and looked layer by layer and the tool path appears the same around the ball area in both Cura and P/S. I may just create a ball bearing test model to print so I can try different settings without printing the die over & over. Itís printing on an Ender 5 FWIW. Iím thinking itís a matter of tuning the bridging settings.

    It also appears in the bullet slides.

    So apparently when I went to upload the files I didn’t notice they were too large for Github so they were rejected. I am going to have to re-render them to be smaller and repost. I will do that once I get home.

    Thank you for pointing this out!

    Sorry for this question that probably has been asked many times, I was not able to find it in the search. Is the only way to run the JGY motor is using the 8mm hex coupler? Wondering if something can be printed out so I could use it today, shaft looks to low to pin it. Haven't been on in awhile and like the new clutch plates, my Grainger motor would bend my pins easily on a jam.

    Prox switch wiring diagram

    Created a new wiring diagram for the Prox switch setup, I got a little confused with the one in the manual so I figured I'd make one while I wait for my double mount to finish printing!

    There are ways in theory, but what has been shown to be the easiest is the hex coupler. I don't run JGY motors as there are just better options for a few more bucks.
