This design was created to help adjust the GRBL setting by precisely measuring the movement of each axis as well as the repeatably of these moves so we could "average" out the GRBL values/ I also highly recommend Clockwise Tools DIGR-0105 Electronic Digital Indicator Gage Gauge Inch/Metric Conversion 0-1 Inch/25.4 mm with Back Lug Auto Off Featured Measuring Tool: (http://amzn.to/2udgHgh) along with the Clockwise Tools DTCR-01 RS232 (USB) Digital Indicator Data Transfer Cable (http://amzn.to/2tJwKSx) to allow the readings to imported to the computer for statistical measurement.

Note 1: this model is not fully parametric as the individual requirement for the X/Y support arms vary to need rather being fixed to the model. I designed this for an 800 watt water cooled spindle (65mm) and tested down to a 400 watt size (52mm and up to 75mm) out side of that the strut size must be manually adjust.

Note 1: The STL which is in the file is the one you see and will fit a 3040 CNC with 800 watt water cooled spindle so no need to use the customizer is this what you have. Also it will likely work on a 3020 and 3060 with same size spindle.

Any 200mm x 200mm printer will work






.3 or better you pick




Pretty simple print, however note you will want to flip over in your slicer so the X/Y support sits on the bed and you off to the races!
