Sorry if I am missing it but can someone tell me how long I should cut the threaded rod for the Z axis? Would it be the same length as the Z axis conduit?June 30, 2016 at 4:45 am #14165
I think he keeps that info in the ‘rails’ section of assembly. I am just starting to assemble my parts now. I have yet to cut anything myself.
“Lead Screw / Allthread = Usable Height + 76mm (3in)”
Good luck with your build! I know I am excited to get mine together and going.

Thanks I looked at that page but still missed it. So 4.5 inches shorter than my Z rails should be right.June 30, 2016 at 8:51 pm #14212
Matt, keep in mind that is the minimum length to cut the threaded rod. I actually cut mine an inch longer just to make sure.July 1, 2016 at 12:05 pm #14235
Thanks I will cut it a little long just in case I screw up. It just needs to be short enough not to hang below the tool mount right?July 1, 2016 at 12:53 pm #14239
