Rack and Pinion collides with Bed Heater LED with long parts


#1

I’m testing my first very long part (10+ inches), and I’ve noticed that when my Y axis gets to around 280mm and I’m on my first layers, the pinon actually collides with the LED, pushing the bed down.

Unless there’s a better solution, the best approach may be to build the bed with either an SMD led, or just leave the LED pins longer so we can bend it over.

For now, I can re-position my part, but I wanted to make others aware of this.

Thanks for the head’s up - I will move to a SMD LED in the future, but for the current rev you could unsolder the LED and mount it to the back side of the bed (or simply cut it off - it does not affect the actual heatbed circuit).
