Build Log #21 - Y and Z Frame complete.

Knobs for the HBP and Z Endstop.

Endstop housing


Printing the Z Housings

The Top Z Stabilizers. The endstops I previously printed came out wrong. I recently made a change to the CAD drawing which inadvertently made a section smaller. I had to go back, fix the drawing and re-print.

All that's left to print is the X Motor, X Idler, X Carriage and mount and I'll be done. Hmm that took about a week to print everything. Been keeping a time sheet to see how long each part takes to print, hopefully I can gauge how long it takes to print a whole set. Haven't even decided if I'm going to purchase the vitamins for it but the BOM is almost done.
