(Not suitable for Photon S model). This precision engineered upgrade is an easy swap-ou t of the existing column assembly , without requiring drilling, tapping or other engineering skills. The custom column extrusion has the bedways and ends CNC machined in one setting giving maximum possible squareness.
All holes are tapped and accept existing screws (no new fasteners required). Changeover time approx 30 mins. On some, maybe all standard Photons, the existing column is not precisely machined at the ends, but is instead linished, so even if the carriage rollers are perfectly adjusted, it still may not stand vertically, particularly fore and aft. The upgrade purpose is to address these problems... Z Wobble', (Regular striping in the Z axis, often at 2mm Pitch).
Existing Z Column not being exactly vertical to the Platform. Excess Flexing/Play of whole moving carriage on vertical axis. Difficulties getting good prints when parts are offset on build plate or when the X-Y surface area is large. Provided the Build plate is flat, correctly set level and firmly locked, the performance should be very consistent with no more unexplained failure of prints to adhere to the build plate, allowing the Photon to reliably reach it's full potential.
For clear installation instructions, please see. Tools required:- 2.5mm, 3mm & 4mm Hexagon Wrenches (not included). Custom Anti-Backlash Nut with Uprated Spring. Lithium Base grease for Z Rod (Leadscrew).
