​ K8200 Z axis modification

Prints (0)


The old Z axis setup was not reliable anymore and was skipping steps due to years of wear.

So I needed a new setup. Because I have changed almost everything on this printer a two motor Z axis would serve this printer better, I guess :-). Also it’s possible to have a longer travel on this new axis, using the same old rods that came with the printer.

You do need an extra stepper motor, 608 bearing, motor adapters and M8 treated rod for this to work.
