Hey my bot is only a couple of weeks old and my x axis string broke. What type of string to I use to replace and how long should it be? Is there something better that would improve it?

You are looking for Spectra fishing line. A well-stocked sporting goods store would probably carry it, or find it online. However if your bot is only a couple of weeks old just contact Printrbot through their support form and I am sure they will replace it for you.

Are you in the US? I have some Kevlar string if I can find it.
