hopefully i might get answer what brackets did you use to get 17mm spacing,

Hmm, I see backlash as being a major issue. Could you perhaps make one of the chariots that is symmetrical? So that it has a nut holder on both sides, and you can screw them both in adding a bit of tension to reduce backlash?


You can use a backslash nut.

how you installed endstop?

In a hurry I just glued them on.

good evening, in this version the endstop is directly on one of the axis X. stem a future release ships endstop on the carriage X.

hello! i'm building atm bigger prusa i3 with alumnium frame but i'm going to use 12 or 10mm rods for z axis and same for x axis, so could it be possible get 3D files for bigger rods/linear bearings? or if you have a file so that i can modify it my self?

Love your update.

I have one huge requests.
Can you adjust the liner bearings for 14mm? I have had much better luck with solid bushings but cant find them to fit.

How are you keeping the brass lead screw nut in place?

I fix the brass nut with these 7981B0213 from phillips

I really don't know a the moment, but i do know that I spend a lot off time on tension adjustment off the "belt" system. I think this is the way to go. Who know's may be in future will se a Rostock using this style! If I can get lead 4ft long I'll give it a try

Hello, out of curiosity, how much does this increase quality? Thank you
