SchorschXY gets a (first) Z

You all know it is called ‘3D-Printing’. That’s why i decided to give SchorschXY another axis.

It is all moving now and all it misses is an extruder. Hotends are there….

For those who have only a handful of steppers: Triggerwarning, explicit use of steppers!

I used 4 Steppers for my Z. Four times this:

The idea is that the printbed is ballbeared against the side and lifted by four M6-screws. Those screws are fixed to the motors with PVC-tube. Motors are held in Place with litle blocks that keep them right in the corner. Fleecetape isolates the vibrations. I can hear’em whisteling.
