Ok, no idea why but facebook wouldn't parse the thingiverse link. It would return a 404 error no matter what. So I ended up having to republish the design. Can be found at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2829855 now.

CR-10 Dual Z with top mounted stepper

You havnt described all of the hardware. How is the tensioner bolted to the frame?

I just ordered all the parts. Excited to join the dual Z society! I'm a little fuzzy on how this build connects the new leadscrew to the carriage. A bracket? Maybe comment here and shed some light on that part of your build?

Thanks for the upload!!

This is a result of a request on the CR-10 Facebook group to post the STLs. My setup uses the factory dual Z setup as a base so the existing bracket is used. I'll update the details to clarify that. I'm sure a properly designed printed bracket could be substituted though.

Thanks for the reply!

Remove the two Z steppers, replace the idler by one of the stepper and you solved most issues and you have one spare stepper and two couplers.
