So i'm currently running a V-slot aluminium extrusion style prusa machine and the results are pretty good, however i'm still seeing alot of banding.
I've narrowed this down to a number of problems, eg, motor mounts, slack belts, DRV8825 missing steps and possibly my Z-screws.

When I made the machine, I was a numpty and managed to order some tr8x8 4 start lead screws + brass nuts that were 100mm too short... instead of buying more of the same, I figured... why not upgrade?

aliexpress has ball screws + mounts for only a marginal amount more, is it worth it?
