After a year with my printer, the standard threaded rods started to get annoying. I decided to upgrade my printer with proper lead screws.
I couldn't find a set that I was sure would fit my printer, so I made one myself. Now you don't have to.
This set fits the standard Prusa i3 with 8mm straight rods, 8mm lead screws and Nema 17 motors.
update #1 :
included .skp files for further customization
update #2 :
modified the right X axis carriage to include a recess for the rim of the lead screw nut.
update #3 :
fixed manifold problems with X carriage parts.
