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!
