Finally making some progress. The Z axis is now moving without complaints.

Finally making some progress. The Z axis is now moving without complaints. Made a one-off piece to constrain the lead screw, being carefully to give it an adjustable range in the x and y axis.

Got some unexpected help from my wife, Sheila, who is anxious to start printing. She offered to help so I handed her the Rasberry pi and told her to load Octoprint…She did!!

Good Z axis.

Looking great. Can’t wait to see you print something that uses the full Z height on that monster.

Gotta love Techy wives!

@Eclsnowman I’m thinking of a classic Marvin the Martian rocket ship. One that will accept the solid rocket fuel used in hobby rockets. Vrooooom!

Thantik was asking about height (can’t find the post) the corner 2020 is 896mm. The linear &threaded rods were lengthened accordingly (just not accurately). They should have been 40mm longer.
