Z homing made easy

The Z homing on a BfB Rapman is insured by an inverted bolt placed at the back of the extruder.
The bolt's head is actioning the Z switch when the bed moves up.

Let's try to find a solution for that...

But I didn't find any allready done spare parts to replace the left Y belt holders.
So I decided to design them...

Printing Bogdan's bearing blocks

The way the bearing blocks are held on the original kit design is not ideal.
Bogdan has designed a set of spare parts to replace the bearing blocks.
So I'm gonna print and use them...

Printing Chylld's corners

The original Rapman kit corners are very fragile and can't be strongly tighten.
Chylld has designed some replacement corners that really look terrific !
So let's have a try at printing one of them...
