I’ve noticed that my bot has had a hard time this year moving around the X-axis. The latest firmware fixed a lot of the problems, but I believe my raised bed is the real culprit. It’s warping and I think it’s enough to cause the bot to jam even though I can move the bot freely along the rails. I have an idea which I think will fix the issue but I wanted some input to see if I’m going to run into any problems I’m not thinking of.
I purchased 1/8 inch thick, 1 inch square aluminum tubing that I am planning on brazing together (I don’t have a welder) in a rectangle the exact size as my raised bed. I will then mount the rails to this. The idea is that this won’t expand and contract and hopefully keep the rails perfectly parallel. I was thinking of mounting this whole thing to the top of my raised bed making sure it’s level.
Does anyone see any problems with this plan or have a better idea before I start so I don’t waste $170 worth of tubing?
