X Axis Version 3

Posted by retromaster on February 3, 2010

Here is the third and hopefully final version of the X axis. In addition to installing the latest parts I’ve milled, I’ve also replaced the couplings with flexible ones from my previous post. There was not a big improvement speed-wise, but this new X axis is quite a bit more reliable and robust than the previous versions. Not to mention that it looks a lot better, too 🙂

Next, I’ll be working on the Y and Z axes. I haven’t yet made a version of the Z axis with ball bearings, and the Y axis could still use some improvements. There is still some work to do, but I think I am getting closer to completing this project.
