Recommended priority of Aluminium Parts

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
