I’ve already printed out all of the 25.4mm parts and wanted to make sure I got the correct stainless steel tube:
Thanks for the help!September 28, 2016 at 6:20 am #18602
It will absolutely work (it’s what I’ve used), the only ‘issue’ is that the j-series nut traps (placed inside the z tubes) are sized for .049 tubing, so some sanding will be required to get them to fit. Not a big deal in my mind, took maybe 10 minutes sanding by hand.September 28, 2016 at 8:20 am #18609
Awesome, I was looking at the same one tubing (mostly because it’s a lot cheaper than the 0.049 tubing).
Still printing parts off, so I’ve been taking my time researching the tubing.September 28, 2016 at 10:36 am #18622
FYI, using 3 day UPS shipping, total cost was $113.37 to Houston Texas. My CNC machine is going to be 24″ X 36. I used the custom lengths option so I shouldn’t even have to cut my pipe when it gets here.September 28, 2016 at 10:53 am #18623
I’m going with the custom cuts option as well, but for a 24″x 24″ (with 9″ Z movement) and it’s $70.00 + $18.72 for shipping to Missouri. ($88.72 total)
For me the Calc said:
(6x) XY-axis Conduit Lengths: 34.4″ (ordering 34.5″)
(2x) Z-Rail Lengths: 16.5″
(4x) Leg Conduit Lengths: 8.5″
Hoping to order the tubing late next week, then the Parts Bundle from vicious near the end of October =\
Can’t wait to finally get this thing built =DOctober 4, 2016 at 10:03 am #18945
FYI, I got my tube in the mail last night and it’s perfect 🙂 I’ve been using a file on the edges so I don’t slit my wrists but other than that it’s super smooth light and strong. All of my rails slide great, no binding at all.October 7, 2016 at 3:54 pm #19117
awesome, thanks for the update on this tubing.
