Looks like my x-axis has too much friction with the metal bar, it's even eating into the bar and little metal pieces fall down. This problem became obvious after I've now finished the assembly and even started to solve initial problems with the extruder, so I have a completely assembled but kind of not working 3d printer now. Any ideas how I can can fix the x-axis, e.g. make it move easier without having to disassemble the whole printer? Of course I "played" with the eccentric nuts that were used at the top, but I still have the same issues. Y/Z move just fine... thx Sven

After a lot fo z-Axis calibration to make the print finally stick, I just noticed the object got loose and moved a bit. That of course ruined the print. When I tried again I noticed that now hardly filament comes out of the nozzle. The extruder "cracks"from time to time as it cannot forward the filament that fast. How do I - a make the print stick to the buildplate - b de-clog the nozzle? thx!

I've downloaded Makertech Cura via the link the tutorial, it was not 7Z, it was a normal dmg file and I was able to open that dmg and put the Cura app into applications. Upon opening my MacOS 10.14.4 complains it is damaged and recommends to move it to trash. Is the Mac version broken? Anyone had the same issue, are there ways to fix this?

I need to lower the probe quite a bit and already took out the filament heater part of the gantry for better access. But the second, upper screwing element for the probe is still hidden. Do I have to disassemble the printer to lower the probe or is there another smart trick that I have not thought of?

I just started to install the dual extruder upgrade and cannot install the spool holder, as I do not have any M5 T-nuts left over. I am pretty sure that I was very carefully following instructions... but anyway: can I reorder some T-Nuts so I can continue?

The STep 1 link does not work, neither does the Resources/Downloads show any files. Where can I find these files?
