i really like the parts and would like to use them on my upcoming MendelMax build, but slic3r complains about an error in the stl and does not render it correctly. Is there a way to fix it? Skeinforge seems to overcome the error despite complaining about it, but i don
´t want to configure the hell out of skeinforge just to print this part. Slic3r is nicer :D

Nevermind, netfabb was able to fix it.

Hi guys, great work on everything you do for the community!

Just wondering, for the Upper Z Idler, what is the logic for making the bearing press in from the bottom? I would think that inserting it from the top, you'd be able to screw on nuts to relieve the weight of the X-system and lead screws.

Are you planning on making any changes to this as part o
f your update package?


just to be sure, is this 8mm version?

Yes, this is for the 8mm Z rods.

I saw a link to this ojbect on http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18201http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

However the rod clasps on that page don't fit this z-mount. Where can I find the clasps that fit?
