This is an upgrade for the Chavo A8 to get rid of Z wobble.

Here is the link to the frame:

I have uploaded 2 versions. One ("Inch") is for the regular 3/16 inch thickness of the frame, and the other (5mm) is meant for a 5mm thickness. The part was modeled in AutoCAD and then converted to a SketchUp file in case anyone would like to modify it to their needs. SketchUp has a plugin that allows you to create .stl files.

Here is a link to that plugin:

Materials needed:
Balls Bearing 608ZZ ID/Bore 8mm/22mm/7mm

Place the Ball bearing inside the Z Wobble hole and then place it on the frame part as shown in the pictures.

Good Luck!

It appears that the models included in the file here on Thingiverse are both the Inch version. I have printed both all 4 models and none of them appear to be the 5mm variant.

1/16 inch is extremely close to 5mm. If you download the STL and open it in a CAD program you would be able to measure the slight differences. The slight differences are for a snug fit. The file sizes are also different.
