Quick warning: Make sure you check how your cables move after this upgrade. I had to add a clip to stop my x-axis stepper motor wires from catching under electronics enclosure. Nearly ripped them out :oops: the first time I raised z-axis to the top.

Very nice, thinking of doing that mod after I finish testing the new design I am testing for lead screw couplers.

This looks great. My printer is cranking out the new parts as I type.

A couple of questions - I'm assuming I'll need to add the little nuts into the new parts. I've looked through the parts section of the site and I don't see them.

Anyone know the specs for those?

Anyone have a source for them?

To install them, do I just heat them up w/ a soldering iron and press them into place?

Thanks in advance.

The AO-101 z-axis parts don't use heat-inserts. The existing nuts can just be removed and re-used in the updated parts.

On the off chance you were referring to the Taz Style x ends parts in the other thread here: http://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=306 Those parts can be installed with a soldering iron and can be sourced from Mcmaster Carr.

That is pretty cool. I think I might have to start printing those parts out.

BTW: Those LED lighting strips are pretty cool. Is there a tutorial on how to do that?
