I am new to this, and “inherited” this mpcnc. The Z nut lock is cracked horizontally through the middle, and I suppose I need a new one. I can’t seem to find the file to have one made (I don’t even have a 3d printer yet!). It was built from the kit, so I assume it is the 11 mm nut. It’s the black thing in this picture:
I’ve looked on thingiverse but they have ones that people have modded. I know there is an improved middle assembly, but building a newer one seems like it’s over my head.

Wow, that’s great. Thank you so much!William AdamsParticipantSeptember 26, 2016 at 2:58 pmPost count: 9
OK. Well I sent that file to Shapeways to print, and it ends up that it’s the 13mm nut. So my nut is 11 mm.
So I have two options:
1. Would you suggest I order the 13 mm nut since I have the new size nut-lock, and will it fit on my same threaded rod that I am using with the 11 mm nut now?
2. Or should I try to find a the file for the 11 mm, and have Shapeways print that instead?

That’s a bummer. If you cover shipping I’ll send you one.
