Z-rod stabilizer for Printrbot PLUS by nexus7fan Dec 19, 2012

Description

These are another z-rod stabilizer for Printrbot+. I made this data before mikemwa upload his one so I did not compare this with his stabilizer. The holes for z-rod of my PB+ are loose. So z-rod are not perpendicular and always wobbling. These help to stabilize z-rod and reduce wobbling.

Can you post the source files for this? I'd like to use it on a printrbot LC, that uses an M8 rod instead of M12.

Yeah, off course I tried. But I could not fill the gap completely and it makes z-rod incline. Probably the way I added the tape might be wrong.

just add kepton tape around rod and jam it in.

Instructions

Print L & R. 12mm hole will be too tight. File the hole. Do not file too much.

If your z-rod is inclined like mine, printing longer sleeve may be difficult. Print temporary version with low infill and install it. Then, print actual stabilizer.
