I just printed out this linear bearing. The overall runout on the shaft was less than .005" and there was only a couple of thousandths of play in the whole thing. I'm impressed with the accuracy of the TAZ 3.0.

Great bearing tmoore. What are you end plans with this bearing and shaft setup?

It was basically a test print to see what the printer was capable of. Not bad for the first few efforts. If need be you could certainly print bearings for short term use.

We're a bit excited about IGUS self-lubricating bushing filament for printing bushings and wear surfaces.
