Good day everyone.

I bought the Ender 3 V2 printer 2 weeks ago and i must say its an amazing little printer. It's my first printer and i'm still getting the hang of it and learning it's ods and ends. I have a concern regarding the filament holder bracket that goes on top of the printer. Seeing that the filament weighs 1Kg and the bracket is only to one side, wont that eventually cause the Z axis to lean to the side the filament rests on? I'm just concerned that over the long run it will cause printing issues.

Any response will be much appreciated.

Experience told me that it will be fine. This is a really interesting point.

@cyt Thanks for the response, so do you keep your filament on the printer between prints or do you remove it?

@m0nst3rgr1m The desktop 3D printer is not as precise as you think. The gantry is stronger than you thought it is. So never mind where you put the filament. 🤣

@m0nst3rgr1m I keep it on the printer, since there are multiple people using the printer, and we print it frequently. If you don't print much, I recommend to store it in a dry place.
