A project log for Cheapest Possible Motorized Laser Z-Axis Table

Ultra simple Z-axis table design, good enough for focus automation for different materials.

Just some pictures from putting this thing together as it's pretty straight forward.

Added some grease! 

The belt is way too thick and bending it alone causes so much friction in this design. I will attempt to redesign this to work with a short GT2 belt that can be easily purchased in the US. That will make this design more opensource compatible. Stay tuned.

Happen to have STL's for the height adjustment things?

Hey Gary, when I find the time, I'll create a thingiverse project and link it here. Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks much, man greatly appreciated. I've been bouncing around ideas in my nugget to put my laser to good use and have no x,y frame or anything yet and came across this and this is exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks a ton for sharing all the work and effort!
