3D Printer 8mm Lead Screw Rod Z Axis Linear Rail Bar Shaft
Replace your M5 Threaded Rod used in the stock kit for the Ormerod 2 3D Printer Kit.
As the threaded rod is not designed to move the Z axis up and down with the required accuracy, also over time the threaded rod will bend and jam the Z axis.
Upon fitting this to your Ormerod/3D Printer you will need to adjust your steps_per_MM value within your firmware, so that your Z axis moves the correct distance when asked.
A printed part will be needed to mount this rod upon the Ormerod. It’s file is available Lead-screw Mount
