Chapter 16. Z-Axis, Part 3

In Chapters 14 and 15 you cut and drilled three of the parts required to build the z-axis and then mounted two bearing-rail assemblies (BRAs). In this chapter, you're going to finish the assembly of the z-axis using the custom measurements you took back in Chapter 13 and another custom measurement you'll perform shortly.

These custom measurements are going to be used to cut the remaining pieces for the z-axis. Please read through the entire chapter before beginning so you'll have a better understanding of the work that you'll be doing.

Note

Refer to the MDF Plans and Cut List PDF file for cutting and drilling dimensions of all MDF parts-this file can be downloaded at www.buildyourcnc.com/book.aspx.
