    So I'm busy putting in the z-axis, only to find out that all 4 z-axis rod caps are missing.

    So I've checked all the packaging over and over and still nothing, so now sent a mail to support.

    I don't have access to another 3D printer so was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as a temporary fix so I can either print them myself or new ones get sent.

    For my opinion it would be a simple solution to just leave them completely and be carefull when moving the bed the rods don't come out. Printing them without should be possible, perhaps you have to tape the rods a little or put some paper into the holes so the bed can't wobble in x and y.

    Yeah I'd try it, but E3D seems to be pretty fast with delivery of missing parts.
    They are pretty small so not a lot of z travel needed... Could work out...
    IMHO you can't damage anything. Just the parts could get not so good quality...
