  • The recommended order replacement of the RailCore II ZL series 3D printed parts with aluminium replacements is:-

    1. X Carriages, Idler pulley mount set & Stepper mounts - recommended for ZL and highly recommended for ZLT
    2. (ZL only) Hotend mount
    3. Z Yokes - highly recommended for ZLT
    4. Z Brackets - reported as useful for hitting higher speeds
    5. (ZLT only) Hotend mount
    6. Magnetic heated bed
    7. Halo - doesn’t seem to improve prints, but does pre-align belts
    8. Aluminum Y carriage - lighter than the printed part, and saves you weight

    Longest swap times after assembly

    1. Magnetic heated bed - if possible, try to incorporate this into your inital build.
    2. Z brackets
    3. Halo
