Ultimaker Bolted Rod End Cap
by thingster, published
With this remix I revised the nut holder of the end cap in a way I like a bit more.
Of course, it's your choice. If you have even further ideas for improvements don't hesitate to take my design and alter it in any form (at least as long as you share it with the community).

Hi! Just to know, you just made it thicker to hold a nylock, right?
Actually, you could just use a long central screw (as yours) and one secondary nut outside of my thinner cap: so that, together with the inside nut you can lock the screw.
The drawback here imho is that it is protruding a lot out of the printer. Quite clever idea to have reversed the later screw btw, they are just so annoying to replace otherwise :)

Additional parts you need:
1x M3 nylock nut
1x M3 20 mm bolt (use a thumb/wing screw)
Update 2013-03-05: Corrected the orientation of the object in the file, so you don't have to do this manually inside of your slicing software.
Update 2013-03-11: Separated into two items, so no more support is required. The thick part takes the nylock nut. The round pocket of the thinner part faces towards the bearing.
