Hello! The wonderful work done by Threefer has inspired me to mash together a Tri Rod Mod for the Jonbot.

Unfortunately, there is no bolt-on solution for the current Z Box from the Jonbot. So I redesigned the base to add the third rod. I did this by lining up all of Threefer's files in Sketchup and mashing an extra rod holder onto it. The box will need to be inverted 180 degrees for printing.

I understand that Threefer has been working on a Jonbot version, so I would like to see how his compares to mine.

Use everything from his mod except the lower Z rod and top Z rod mounts. This should be a relatively simple mod, and you can pair it with Danman1178 and my extended X rod spacing mod to have the most stable bot in the world!*

Will be a WIP before I can test, but everything was good in CAD so I don't forsee any issues. Enjoy!

*I highly doubt it would be the most stable bot, but it will definately be a solid, awesome machine!

Yes! I use it. worked great. I may still have it someplace

Can you please share the source files so that this can be cut into pieces small enough to print on 100x100x100 printer? Or redo the bottom?

Also, I'm curious as to the purpose of the 90 degree curved duct at the rear (in this view) of it. Is that for a cooling fan? With a smallish pipe to cool the Z-axis motor, and most of the flow presumably to cool the X-axis motor?
