Is the spring strong enough for a Z Axis anto backlash mod?
I only have PLA at home. can I print it in PLA?

Great script and design! After one failed attempt at coming up with a 3D-printable spring design, I found this. Works great!

great concept. Do you think it is possible to print springs for the extruder bearing bracket?

no. you need stronger springs then plastic, stronger then inc pen spring.

This is really nice Obi Juan! What plastic are you using for this?

Thanks! It was printed in ABS

Could you generate stl examples to use it in my Prusa Mendel Z Axis??? Thx!! I would appreciate it a lot!

Download the spring.stl file. It should work for Prusa. But it is rather difficult to print

You should post a video of these springs in action.
