Have made a bunch of posts now talking about getting and installing new spring for my Elegoo Neptune 2.  Am working on printing a really big file in many parts.  As I am typing this (August 10, 2021) have printed off two.  They both turned out awesome.  These new spring has made a big improvement with the printer.  Hoping by the weekend I should have all the pieces printed.  Just need to get some new sandpaper to clean up a few spots on the prints.  Will be back with an update.

Have made a few post now talking about having trouble leveling the bed on my Elegoo Neptune 2.  All so that I ordered new springs and that they arrived.  Now I add to install them.  It’s a simple possess.  With only one giving me problems.  The back left.  This were the wires are plugged into the bed. After that re-leveled the bed a few times (four).  It seems to be working so much better now.  On to getting back to the printing project I have planed.

The new bed springs I ordered for my Elegoo Neptune 2 have arrived.  Was hoping there would have been here before this past weekend.  But nothing that can be done about that.  Now I need to install them.  Did watch a how to video.  Very simple to do.  With only one small part that might give to trouble.  The one at the back left.  This were the wires are plugged into the bed.  The guy said you need to unclip this.  Hoping I don’t mess that up.  Will be back with another update.  Oh, these are the springs I ordered > here.

ELEGOO_Neptune_2.jpgGot around to ordering new bed springs for my Elegoo Neptune 2.  In my last post talking about this 3D printer I had trouble leveling the bed in the back left corner.  When would turn the knob to lower or raise that corner it would only move a little.  Have read that some people are replacing the stock springs with better ones.  I just had to find out which one would work the this machine.  These are the ones I ordered > here.  Hoping they will be here soon.  Because I have some plans for a big prints.

ELEGOO_Neptune_2.jpgAnother post talking about the Elegoo Neptune 2 FDM 3D Printer again.  When I got it and setup it up had some trouble trying to get the bed leveled in the back left hand side.  Got a bit frustrated and set about print things any way.  Those few small things turned out fine.  Well the other day decided to give something bigger a try.  That didn’t turn out so good.  As the first few layers were going down.  Could see it wasn’t sticking in that back corner.  So stopped the print and tried to re-level the bed.  This helped in three of the corners but that back one still no luck.  Took a closer look at the spring and it didn’t seem to move at all.  Have read and seen a video on how to replace the bed springs.  So sometime this week will have to order some.  Will be back with and update.
