whoah, it works! (inexpensive dual z-stages for SLS)
As a quick follow-up to my last post, I thought I'd do a quick test of the dual z-stages without aligning anything just to see if the whole rig was in the ballpark of working.
It works! almost every nut in the thing unscrewed itself, but it works! :) and it's about 300 steps/mm with all the gearing and the screw pitch, so it's super precise!
Really nice design. I'm tempted to cut one just to have a moving platform around :)
