Building the Z-Axis

The Z-Axis motor holders selected and fitted

One Z-Axis motor fitted, ready to fit the other and then the trapezoidal nuts for the top of the lead-screws being fitted to the top supports.


The main part of the Z-Axis is now in place, the lead-screw on the stepper motor can be clearly seen along with the round rods which give smooth travel in the Z-Axis. To the right we can see that the toothed belt has been fitted and tensioned.

Another stage completed. The X, Y and Z Axis mechanisms are all in place. That section took 1 hour to complete.
