Just sand or file it a tiny bit on the last 1″ or so, it is a tight fit so any slight inconsistency and it jams, no big deal.February 27, 2018 at 5:37 pm #53919
When using the T8 Lead Screw design do we still need to print the Nut Block? I am in the middle of printing my parts and don’t have my tubes yet so I can’t really put it together to see if the nut lock is still needed.February 27, 2018 at 6:07 pm #53929
If you haven’t printed the nut lock, you can use 2 spacers for the T8 version. The nut lock and the spacer both have the same dimensions for separating the necessary parts though if it is already printed.

Ryan, I think it would be helpful to put this information on the printed parts page. I found it in the assembly instructions while reading through them but I wasn’t actually sure while printing the parts since I had not gone through the assembly instructions yet. Also, why are some parts on the printed grayed out on that page?

The parts page says one nutlock and 1 spacer. That would work. It is hard to put all the information on every page no one reads it then. I will try to come up with an elegant way top add it but it rarely comes up.
As for the two colors they are for me and how I print the different colors in the kit.February 28, 2018 at 5:19 pm #54005
To kind of give you an example the first sentence of that page describes what C, J, and F mean on the part sizes. It is on that page first sentence, on each thingiverse page, and in the instructions I get emailed about that constantly. Hard to balance information and information overload.
I have added a footnote.
