Z and X axis complete!



I really wanted to take more pictures of the build process, but building this thing got so addictive that I just went for it. Last night I got the majority of the Z-axis built with the exception of one M5 x 30mm bolt that was forgotten in the kit. Not too big of a deal…a trip to Home Depot this morning took care of it, and I got this built just after breakfast. Up the this point the only part that had me swearing in a fit of rage was getting the Z-axis centered properly between the stepper and lead nut. Getting the V-wheels rolling properly wasn’t too fun either.
