Getting Rid of Salmon Skin with 8 Diode Smoothers

One of the issues found with the Tevo Tornado, is that it suffers from Salmon Skin when printing.  Rui Raptor jumped in and created a terrific video showing us how to fix the issue quickly and easily… use an 8 diode smoother board.  You need to confirm that the wires are correct for this to work right, and the video shows how to build the proper wire. He explains why you want to use 8 over 4, giving us examples.  If you have a Tornado, this is a pretty simple upgrade that will help the quality of your prints.  If you have a Tevo Tornado, this video series is a must watch.
