More info

The XYZ Tightness KIT is designed to tighten the "wobbly" on the primary printer axis which is the primary cause of "ovals" instead of "circles" and overall whaked printing on the Da Vinci XYZ 3D printer.

The KIT includes 5 sets of washers (3 for the axis itself and 2 for the rails) and the gel superglue needed (see video below).

Installation will require you to remove the side and plastic back panels and disassemble the as per the instructional video. If you're not technical or hany with basic tool, ask a friend to help.

This kit was installed on our printer and definately improved the printing quality.

Kit may not be (all) of the solution....

I too, was having incresingly poor printing and similar to Chris, it turned out I had a broken Y axis bearing holder. Luckily I have two printers and was able to design and print a replacement bearing holder. You may want to download and print two before you need them. Can be found at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1271622. Between the two fixes, things are printing well.

Making Circles

After installing this kit on to my printer I'm now getting perfect circles instead of ovals. This has made the printer a much better printer for the price. Awesome price for the kit and great work...

Absolutely need this for higher quality on the Da Vinci 1.0

I had a couple of issues with my Da Vinci and why it was printing ovals instead of circles: 1) I had a broken Y axis bearing holder, and 2) I had lots of backlash. This product doesn't address 1, but it fixed 2 like a charm. Awesome price; great kit. I wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

Perfect circles

My printer was printing wacky ovals instead of circles, after talking to xyzcorp by email they suggested I watch a video on how to fix the problem (same video that is on this website) so I decided to give this kit a go. It was a bit of a pain to take the covers off the printer and the axis disconnected as I am not technical but after about 40 minutes it was installed. I was amazed how much better my circles came out. Definitely worth the time to install. Highly recommended.
