3D model description

(Updated) i have updated the model with slightly bigger openings for the threaded rod.
and also added a sat file for anyone that feels necessary to modify it as long as credit is given..
Here is a Z tower brace mod that I have created to fill a need for myself and others that
want to use all of there z height after installing a toranado extruder or
any extruder taller than stock.

4x m3.5 hex nuts (to intsall in the new tower braces for the side screws)
3x 410mm 5/16 threaded rod
12x 5/16 nuts
12x 5/16 washers
the guide balls are meant to be used with 5/16 washers and nuts.

And they also help to square off your z towers for better print quality..
(as many of us know the original frame is not perfect.)

This mod has been tested and modified and tested some more to ensure before release it is an actual upgrade that is a working drop-in replacement for the original tower brace.

A BIG THANKS goes to --Todd Swindoll-- for testing and providing great feedback and of coarse showing them off in the wanhao Di3 facebook group..

The pictures above of the installed brace is my v1 (2 rail)..
The model has since been updated and pictures of the actual final 3rd rail version will be in the makes section.
