LEAD 1515 High Z Add-On
In the case of the LEAD 1515 its now even easier because everything for the rigidity is already in place! All that is needed are the 2 taller 20x80 (500mm) side columns to raise the height.
So how it works is you would still follow along with the standard LEAD 1515 Build video as normal, but where the smaller (330mm) side columns are being used you would use the taller (500mm) ones in its place and where the shorter (250mm) Z axis is being used you would use the longer C-Beam (500mm) and longer Lead screw (540mm)
So for the higher Z mod you would need
(2) 20x80 V-Slot @ 500mm - To replace the 330mm side columns
(1) C-Beam @ 500mm - Will replace the shorter C-Beam for the Z axis
(1) Lead screw @ 540mm - For the new Z axis longer length
The build is the same as the Build video.
We have included a couple pictures (pictures only show taller sides, not the taller Z axis) as well as a SketchUp 3D model in the Files and Drawings Tab
