  1. Great upgrade

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Jul 2016

    My printer works much better now. Threaded rods were a good start but this kit makes it great. Videos are extremely helpful!

  2. lead screw upgrade

    Posted by mark on 3rd Jun 2016

    I had constant issues with wearing nuts on the old threaded rod system. After upgrading to the Lead screw, I have had consistently better print results and now I am guaranteed a lot longer life on the z-axis.

  3. Upgrade worth getting

    Upgraded my always problematic threaded rods. This upgrade was easy and quick. Money well spend.

  4. Great upgrade

    Posted by Jaco on 16th Feb 2016

    Asked Paul a few months ago to figure out how to upgrade to lead screws. So they figured out what to do and I bought a set which made my z-rib problem vanished.
    I have a original E3D V6 hotend which are shorter than the stock hotend - Problem is that the brass nut from the lead screw kit bottomed out on the flex coupling before the nozzle touches the bed - all I did was to install 4x 5mm spacers(washers) underneath the heat bed.
    Easy upgrade and worth it.

  5. Bit of a pain to setup but oh so worht it

    Posted by Quinton on 26th Jan 2016

    The kit itself is a bit of a pain to setup and configure, considering I have one of the original Prusa i3 from the store ... but Paul and his team have been very patient with me and have answered all my queries ... thanks everyone.

    Once the kit is installed and working you will wonder how you ever made do without it.

    If you have the old threaded rods, I really recommend you upgrade to this ... it is definitely for the better.
