We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Tired of trying to align Z threaded rods and get rid of wobble I created X mounts that absorbs XY movements that Z threaded rods cause when not perfectly aligned. The absorbing structures use same principle of some lunar rover wheels. The structure uses ABS flexibility as absorber.
On Z threaded rods, to limit vertical movement of nuts it's necessary to glue and small lid over upper nut. Inside use the common nut spring nut system.
The part I printed got a little bit fragile, I have to do some improvements but works great!
If you are having difficulties on slicing it try yo rotate the part.
I also have to check out if the "ABS spring" won't break due to fatigue after a lot of prints.
