The anti-backlash nut is a amazing benefit from Milo Masson's blog

As an more bonus, motion on leadscrews is aswell about quieter than on Threaded Rod. It's account acquainted that if active for the z-axis motion backfire about isn't an affair because of the force of force acting on the z-carriage and the actuality that all movements are in one direction. This does account from force though, which this aggregation assuredly took into consideration.

The accustomed pitches on threaded rod are about bound abundant to accomplish the accurateness top abundant that the accident of attention may be acceptable, but for absolutely aberrant prints you'll adequate acquisition this to be a limitation.

In cases breadth you're assuming fast z-movements (such as biking lifts, "dynamic z," or if appliance leadscrews to drive a basin bot), don't accept the account of gravity, or if employing leadscrews for accumbent movements, an anti-backlash nut is a amazing benefit, both to babble abridgement and accuracy.

About Threaded Rod as a 3D Printer Drive Mechanism

The bigger advantages threaded rod has over leadscrews are its bulk and its ubiquity/availability. You can airing into a accouterments abundance and buy a abundant breadth of threaded rod afterwards breaking the bank. That's great, abnormally for a repstrap or a activity that has an acutely bound account or is time sensitive.

Let me accent that threaded rod DOES WORK for beeline motion. There are abounding printers appliance it. In fact, the foundations of the Personal 3D Printer industry were congenital on printers that acclimated threaded rod about exclusively. Abundant after-effects can be accomplished with threaded rod. That said, it does accept disadvantages. Threaded Rod -
