3D model description

I've made very few changes to the original as the design is really good. The only addition is a distance tube to enable the LM8UU bearings to be utilised and a few options for the bearing tubes, dependent on printer tolerances as it's important to get a good tight fit to eliminate any slop. I originally posted this as a Make on Connolly's design page but have been requested to supply the STL for the distance pieces and bearing tubes a few times so figured this would be the best way.
I've not included the lowering blocks or the Z leadscrew coupling as these can be obtained from the original author if desired.
You will need to print the following for a complete set:

4x "X5S-Zaxel-01" (These are the big reinforcing blocks)
4x "X5S bracket_link-V2" (The linking plates that go either side of the leadscrews)
4x "Bearingtube-01 Nats 15xx" (Choose correct size for your printers tolerances)
4x "Bearing_Block-01" (These are not strictly necessary if you ensure a good driving fit)
