Heh... I suppose the suggestion that you really should only do one major mod at a time in order to make troubleshooting issues easier would be wasted?Xephy wrote: ↑ Good tip and very well said. I got some vertical artifacts on one part but it was one the outside of a curve so it didn't affect the usability of the part.

The perfectionist in me wants it to be as close to perfect off the bed. The fixer in Me says "just cut it off with a knife and get over it. To which the perfectionist replies "shut up. It can be better."
God bless you good sir. You're a gentlemen and a scholar. I hope I can someday share the knowledge you have shared with me with others. This is exactly what I needed today.
So I am swapping out my board and I noticed all the connections on my V4.2.2 are hot glued into place. Fan connections/stepper drivers/screen/axis sensors. All hot glued on. The steppers were especially annoying to get off. I 'rektd' that board prying off the connections. Had to clean off all the glue on the connectors with a knife after.
Thankfully I wasn't going to try to sell it. Not sure if anyone elses board was like that. But it was a major annoyance I ran into swapping out the boards.
Other than that spent a lot of time cable managing all the wires and running the BLtouch wire together with the other wires. It was a mess down there and I just prefer it nice and clean. Plus better air flow.
Now I just need to learn how to properly remove and swap pins and close it up. install the metal extruder and capricorn hose and springs relevel and firmware install and I'm done. Hahha hopefully not too many issues but that's dreamer like thinking.
At the very least, I'd suggest leaving the bltouch disconnected for your first power up of the new board and testing the movement of your axis' with the stock firmware on the new board. (edit, although in fairness my printer was already running the bltouch with the stock mainboard when I swapped so I didn't have the option of going without the bltouch since I had no Z-stop switch).
