How can i change Z axis using T8? Please help me. ThanksSeptember 26, 2015 at 10:55 pm #3221
what is the pitch
assuming it is 2mm… and your stepper is 1.8 degrees per step. then….
at 16 microsteps it is 1600 steps per mm [ ((360/1.8) * 16) / 2mm = 1600 ]
at 32 microsteps it is 3200 steps per mm
you can use the calculator here also if its something diffrent

So you want to change your M8 threaded rod to a M8 Lead Screw.
The parts to modify would be the nut lock, to take the nut flanged screw nut.
Also with these most are 2mm pitch but have four flutes, so the pitch to use for calculations will be 8mm. Because for every 1 revolution the nut will travel 8mm.
You do not need the spring with this as there is very little back lash with these.
