5/16-18 Threaded Rod For IE version


What size must be the threaded rod in cm for the I.E. Version?

8mm is the most common

And how long should it be?

2" shorter than your z axis

please note there are 2 options which aren’t clearly articulated:

  • to go with a “5/16-18 Threaded Rod” (or M8 threaded rod in metric system) and a pineapple coupling (which is a printed part)
  • or to go with a T8 lead screw with a T nut and a 8mm-5mm coupler which are factory made and can be purchased online here at the website store (https://vicious1-com.myshopify.com/collections/parts) or anywhere else

now about the lengths:

  1. there is a lead screw that is sold from this website store as a standard part of MPCNS and it is 300mm long, this gives you an idea of how long it is supposed to be: https://vicious1-com.myshopify.com/collections/parts/products/300mm-leadscrew-and-nut

  2. there is also a all-lengths calculator (can be found on this page: https://www.v1engineering.com/assembly/conduit-rails-tubes-pipes/ in the bottom), that would give you all lengths you need (including leadscreew and conduits) if you want to go beyond standard
