Regular checkup after you have used Moai over an extended period to ensure optimal performance and latest settings.

Hardware check up

Z-Axis and Build Platform

Please check these screws. 8 on the Build Plate Arm, 2 on z-axis from the front side. 6 on the build platform that is holding the vat. (3 on each side)

From the back of the machine, double check to make sure Z-axis is mounted securely by checking these 8 screws

You can also use common engine oil like 5w-30 to lubricate the Z-axis rod.

Tilt Mechanism

Check these 6 screws to make sure they are fully tightened, and the metal rod is locked. This is what you will see when looking in from the left frame side:

Check the PM motor and see if it is secured mounted:
