RepRap Champion Z-Brace Frame Support Upgrade Kit for Wanhao Duplicator i3 and Monoprice Maker Select V1, V2 and V2.1 3D Printer

This kits is a result of our effort to improve existing and popular Z-brace kits based on 3D printed parts. Our kit is fully metal kit, no printed parts. It looks minimal compared to the 3D printed Z-brace designs, but it will make your frame completely stable, just like other similar kits.

In our kit we use ball joints to eliminate any tension created by misalignment between upper and lower bracket. Off shelf M5 ball rod ends are making our Z-brace design simple and clean looking.

Convenient feature of our kit is ability to allow fine adjustment of the each Z-rod length. Z-Brace rod design is based on turnbuckle principle – each rod will extend and contract by turning tube clockwise or counterclockwise. When you are done with adjustment – just tighten counter nuts on each rod end to get rid of any small play and you will make your adjustment permanent. After you tighten counter nuts your frame will become completely solid and stable.

Package contents:

2 x Aluminum tubes pre-assembled with 2 x M5 steel ball rod ends (left hand and right hand threaded) and 2 x M5 counter nuts (left hand and right hand threaded).
2 x Lower mounting brackets.
2 x Upper mounting brackets.
10 x M3x8 socket head screws.
5 x M5x12 socket head screws.

  1. Must have upgrade for V2.1 I have done a lot of mods to my Monoprice Maker Select v2.1 (Rebranded Wanhao i3) and usually I just print them myself. When it came to the Z-Brace mod I decided to order these for a number of reasons and I am glad I did.1. I live in a small town and getting the required threaded rods and all the hardware for these braces would require me to drive about an hour away to a larger town with a real hardware store.2. Printing all the required pieces takes a bit of time and I liked…
