there are pretty low cost pillow block bearings on the market. I’d like to add such one to the Z drive array to decouple the axial loads from the stepper bearings. Grabcad has a couple of models in various CAD formats available. How can I best align and integrate that into the lower Z-plate? I understand it should be mounted with the flat side down. Subtracting such a body from the existing body is no problem, but the exact coaxial alignment of the bearing is not trivial.
I wanted to attach the stl file taken from here, but it is not possible. It’s just a click away though.
Thanks in advance for assistance and comments.
