    Hola guys,

    I just assembled my machine and am at the Auto Home portion of the instructions. All goes smoothing until the z axis... any tips? Check out the video

    Figured it out. There are two screws on the extruder assembly that the instructions say "do not tighten" that the z axis rod goes through, via a little brass hole. Those were super tight from the factory. Once I backed those off the printer doesn't make any weird sounds and doesn't bind up, prints fine.
