I am starting my build on a 3d router and plan to use linear bearings also.
I noticed you have a single shaft on each side, does that provide enough support for the carrage assembly ??
Anything different you would do if you were to build another one ??

Thank you

hello Dave,
yes, if you use linear bearings a single shaft on each side will be enough.
When I spoke with Lucasz, he told me that his 3D Router workes perfectly!

best regards,
Suso

I noticed in Lukasz version he has a adjustment wheel mounted on the to of the Z axis.
What would that be for ??

Also, how do you loch down the z axis at a certain height ?
IE: like if I wanted to lower a router bit to a specific height and have it maintain that height??

I am thinking along the lines of inlay and marquetry.

Thanks
Dave

hello again Dave,

I think that Lukasz has added that adjustment wheel in order to lower the router bit to a specific height. In the original design you cannot lock the Z axis, but you can do the same as Lukas, or use the adjustment wheel of the Y axis to lower the router bit to a specific height.
