3D Printer Z Axis

This weekend, with the help of my oldest son, I was able to get the Z axis built and implemented. This was actually much easier than originally thought. I have secured the top of the Z axis with some wood with properly sized holes drilled into it, levelled the smooth rods and then screwed and glued the top supports.

My next step is the X axis, though I think this will be simple as well. The next part that will be tough is the extruder. I am considering ordering an extruder rather than cobbling one together, but that will take some challenge out of this design as well. I’ll have another update next week!
