Tie rods

A project log for KOSSEL XXL

I wanted to build a large printer capable of printing PLA or ABS to a high quality, speed is also of major importance. (Mini Kossel based)

The tie rods that link the effector onto the carriages need to be fairly accurate in length, i knocked up a simple jig for this using a bit of timber.

I used a drill press to put some straight 2.5mm holes in the wood and wound some m3 screws with a nice 3mm OD shank on them, probably a bit ott but it keeps my sanity in check. :)
