Not the best design. To use them properly you would need to remove the T-brackets on the vertical beams. By doing so, you will compromise the rigidity of the frame.

Not sure what you mean, I use them and never removed anything ...

I'm having trouble with my new cr-10, the non motor side of the gantry actually seems higher sometimes and levelling is all over the place. First layers the gantry doesn't seem to rise properly and there's lots of scraping of the print , most the time it pulls the print off the bed. Would these help? Is it a one off alignment and take them away? Thanks

They are just to help get the both sides of the z level then you take them away. Should be a one-off or occasional thing - the x beam tends to get off level if you have had to push down on the extruder for some reason, but being bowden that doesn't happen as much on the CR-10 as with direct drive (like having to remove clogged filament etc)

Does this interfere with the z axis stop?

Nothing is interfered with anywhere ...

i printed those, and they weren't tall enough to be of any use on my cr-10. waste of filament. lol

I didn't realize it was so small till I opened it up in cad, apologizes. Either way I need a set myself so it was win win.

On my CR10 (300mm) I had to remove the Z Stop to make this work. Short effort and I really already had to relevel the bed due to other work.

You shouldn't need to remove anything

You know these might be a really good idea for installing the dual z upgrade too

Oh yes maybe :)
