Nice vídeos and these assembly tools are very handy! Do you have them for the 3030 (HEVO) hardware? Thanks a lot.

Any possibility of making holes by the jig, so you can drill taps in? I am still going to use the corners, but think it would make it more stable with tapped screws into the extrusions.

It would not be more stable to use tapped screws over hammer nuts. Steel hammer nuts with a steel screw has more camping power than steel screws into aluminum. There also isn't enough aluminum to tap into on a 2020 extrusion, there is a 4.2mm hole in the middle of the extrusion and the center is an 8mm square leaving less than 2mm thickness to tap into. Not to mention that on sections with multiple corners it would weaken the extrusion. If you are worried about stability just print corner brackets such as these https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2503622 or this https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2987859

Any chance to make a 3030 version too? Or upload the cad files so can i do it? Thanks a lot!

By means of the only difference between a Hypercube 300 and another Hypercube of $AnyBuildSpace is the length of x/y/z extrusions, will the z alignement tool work on a original Hypercube? Anyway, thanks for sharing.

This will not work on the original Hypercube. The only things the Tech2C Hypercube and my Hypercube 300 have in common is the geometry/belt paths and that we both use flanged pulley idler bearings. All the extrusion lengths, printed parts and locations of the z axis parts are different.

Hi Adrian.

First. Thank you for the work you have done and all the resources you have provided to the online community. i owe you a a beer or ten haha. cheers mate.

Can i use the z parts alignment tool for the zyltech hypercube 300 dual-z kit?

thanks for your time!

Only for 2020 extrusions, too bad this isn't for the 3030.

Can you make a video to explain better?

Already working on it. It should be ready in a few days.
