Shapeoko 2 Z-Axis and 300mm Linear Actuator Retrofit from Maker_Store_Team's blog

We were recently asked if one of our 300mm Linear Actuator Kits could be retrofitted to the Z-axis of a Shapeoko 2.


This is one solution we came up with (not the only one):


The problem 

The hole spacing on the Z-Assembly Carriage (PS20021) and the Shpeoko's bolt height above the plate.


Solution:

The Linear Actuator was designed to allow for a length of 2060 V-Slot to fit inside and act as a mounting base. Using the Linear Actuator with the 2060 base, the 3 long slots and some 6.5mm spacers as standoffs the assembly looks like this:






Parts Required:

1 x 300mm Linear Actuator Kit

1 x 280mm 2060 V-Slot

2 x 8mm Low Profile Screws

6 x 15mm Low Profile Screws

6 x Tee Nuts

6 x 6.5mm Spacers


We would love to get feedback and ideas on other mounting methods.
