This tool clips onto the axes to aid in aligning them.


Just print 2 in PLA or ABS with 0.1mm layer height and clip them onto each end of the axis you are trying to align. Be sure to loosen pulleys before aligning, and tighten them when axes are aligned. Prints in about 20 mins.

Joly, what's the distance between rods on the ultimaker, and do you have an openscad file for this?

Thanks for this, it's a really great jig idea.

From memory its 40mm. Sorry, but I dont use openscad. I can upload a dxf if you want :)

The dxf would be great, thanks. I noticed that the rods appear to be different sizes, but I could work with that to generate the code and then just linear extrude it in Openscad. Thanks!

dxf is up :)

Nice simple design. I like it.

Thanks, its my first 'thing' :)
