Re: MagBall knocked off - reasons?

FW checks out. I decided to try out the first_print that's bundled on the machine and watching very closely I noticed I was having similar issues.

I've been using S3D with a cartesian style for the past year and I feel pretty comfortable there. Unfortunately I'm not having any luck using S3d now. Using...
