    Greg, what's the latest on the stepper motors with integrated lead screws for the z axis for the BigBox?
    Do you have a price?

    Thanks!

    Hell of a lead time Greg; we seem to have had a lot more than a 4-start wait! :D:D

    Can we have them in this "flavour"? Or will that not fit inside the bb?

    That is complete overkill!

    The integrated motors are perfect for the job. I have them on test on three BBs currently, of which one BB has a metal framed heated bed which weighs about 3 kg. They run fine :)

    Oh now you're just teasing us, Greg! :rolleyes:

    I've been wanting to buy some since you first mentioned them - hurry up and take my money! Well, some of it anyway.
    :D

    The leadscrews are 2mm pitch single-start. Like the very first batch of leadscrews. I just checked again. They are very good for weight. You could even run them at 1/4 steps and still get good resolution.
