<p>ME-1 is a stainless steel screw shaft and and ME-2 is a nut made from a tribological resin. This part combination can be used without grease. I ordered the part combination from <a href = 'https://us.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/110302642530/?PNSearch=MSSRW401-150-F6-V2.5-S6-Q2.5&HissuCode=MSSRW401-150-F6-V2.5-S6-Q2.5&searchFlow=suggest2products&Keyword=MSSRW401-150-F6-V2.5-S6-Q2.5'> here</a>, where I configured the product by looking at the table under the tab "Drawing/Specificaitons". After screwing the lead in the nut, then I snap fitted the sub-assembly in the slider (ME-2 Part) and tight fitted the two parts with screws (ME-4 Part). The slider was 3D-printed using the Eden printer with the VeroWhite Plus Resin. Generally, no one at CBA likes this material for machine building due to its poor mechanical properties. I love its accuracy and beatiful finish after removing the support material with the water blasting and considering the delicate use of this system under low load conditions. I used it for all the 3DP Parts of the projects. If you don't have accesss to such a printer, you can also use an desktop FDM 3D printer with the PLA resin. Keep in mind to account for hole clearances by modifying the provided STEP models based on your printer's resolution and settings!</p>

Initially, I snap fitted one linear bushing (ME-5) in each of the slider wings sitting on the left side (3DP-1 Part) and the right side (3DP-2 Part) of the main slider (3DP-2). Then, I fitted one linear bushing in each side of teh main slider. I sourced these bushings from <a href = 'https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Double-Rubber-Bearing-Bushing/dp/B0742RT5FV/ref=sr_1_2?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1520998572&sr=1-2&keywords=LM4UU+Linear+Motion+4mm+Ball+Bushing&dpID=41MaFqlG%252BZL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch'> Amazon</a> in a really good price!!! After screwing the lead in the nut, then I snap fitted the sub-assembly in the slider (3DP-2 Part) and tight fitted the two parts with screws (ME-4 Part).</p>
<p>Both the main slider and the slider wings were 3D-printed with the Eden printer using the VeroWhite Plus Resin. Generally, no one at CBA likes this material for machine building due to its poor mechanical properties. I love its accuracy and beatiful finish after removing the support material with water jet blasting and considering the delicate use of this system under low load conditions, I used it for all the 3DP Parts of the projects. If you don't have accesss to such a printer, you can also use an desktop FDM 3D printer with the PLA resin. Keep in mind to account for hole clearances by modifying the provided STEP models based on your printer's resolution and settings! Th elast thing to kkeep in mind is that the linear bushings have to tightly fit in each hole by first being able to fit them up to one point with your hand and then you can use a hammer to slowly bring them to tehir final position.</p>
