When it comes to 3D Printing quality, there are so many different factors that all add up and work together to produce great prints, making it not just a science, but an art as well. Fortunately, this means that there are a variety of different ways in which you can improve the quality of your prints, without having to delve too deep into the actual mechanics, electronics and programming of the machines. One such upgrade is the Dual Z-Axis Upgrade Kit, which is designed for the TEVO Tarantula and provides extra stability and positional accuracy – and consequently print quality – for the gantry and extruder.

This upgrade is impressively simple to install, allowing even beginners to enjoy the full benefits of it, and just needs a slight amount of cable management and some time spent getting it levelled and calibrated to the right position. It fits along the overhanging bar above the gantry and plugs into the control box, acting as a secondary support rail so that the gantry is not being lifted with a single Stepper Motor on only one of the sides.

This secondary support helps to reduce the stress of the original rail and motor, so that the 3D Printer can maintain better positional accuracy. This translates to better quality prints, but also offers the extra benefit of less maintenance, with longer lasting positional accuracy and less overall stress – on both the machine and the user. The leadscrew that comes with the upgrade kit is a TR8x2 leadscrew, so that it matches the original leadscrew perfectly and can simply operate on the same motor inputs as the original motor.

Typical Applications for the Dual Z-Axis Upgrade Kit for the TEVO Tarantula:
