3D model description

Save your Z-level, by marking the position of the lead screws using these pointers that fit perfectly around the z-motor couplers.

Carry out the z-leveling using the most accurate method you choose, home your print head, then mark where the lines on the lead screw couplers fall. You will immediately notice if your z motors got out of sync, and you will know how to adjust the screws without redoing the leveling!

Included Left and Right z-motor caps, and five variants of the pointers for an accurate fit regardless of the clearance of your printer.

+ much improved fit with 4 screw hole protrusions on the right/left caps - no more wiggle!
+ elongated arrow now extends to the edge of the caps - improved viewing angles!

+ turns out the right and left z-motor caps are compatible with the regular SV06 (non-Plus version!) Thank you @brucoder for the feedback!

3D printing settings

All pieces can be printed out of PLA, without brims and supports!

Z-motor caps: 0.2mm layer height, regular speed, 2 walls, minimal infills. If the groove (which is printed up-side-down) doesn't turn out smooth enough slow down between layers 20-25. Print time 15-25 minutes each.

Pointers: print one for each cap, using a contrasting color, 0.1mm layer height, slow speed. It is small small, there is no infill with 2 walls. Print time: 2 minutes each. Start with "pointer 3.stl", if it turns out to be too tight, try "pointer 2 or 1", if too loose try "pointer 4 or 5".

I included a screenshot of the model positions in the slicer, please note these pieces should be printed one at a time!
