I asked on Saturday.
The new ones have repaired internal geometry that may work better on simplify3d but either version should work fine.

Re: Adding an Openbuilds Openrail x axis to a Lulzbot Taz 4/5

Can you explain the differences between these parts and do we need to print the newer version if we've already printed the outdated version?

Confused by these: One 1/4" bolt that fits the larger eccentric holes, also about 35mm long and nut Would this be 1/4-20 x 1 1/2 Long or 1/4-28 x 1 1/2 Long 1 1/2 is as close as I can get to 35 millimeter without being too short.
