M3 Cap Head Screw with different length options available.
30mm – These screws can be used in combination with the V-Slot Actuator End Mount. They fit the M3 threads of the Nema 17 stepper motors so they are useful in many projects.
40/45mm – These screws can be used in combination with the 1.5″ Spacers to mount Nema 17 stepper motors in a stand off position.
These low profile screws are a great choice for any project! Compared to most screws, they are ultra low profile, which means plenty of clearance and the low profile head will not get in the way when building.
This precision trapezoidal (metric) lead screws pitch and diameter are a perfect combination of high torque and speed. This screw fits the bill for most machine designs. and is equipped with a large diameter that helps eliminate whipping. A high pitch allows quick movement at 8mm per revolution. It’s a great power transition choice for your next build.
Use with the V-Slot Nut Plate and Nut Block
An example steps settings for your control software would be 200 steps per millimeter if you are running the common 1.8 degree steppers and your stepper driver is set to 1/8 step mode. To calculate different step scenarios for your control software, have a look at these handy steps calculators!
Common setup example:
NOTE: Because this lead has 4 starts with 2mm pitch between each this means the pitch will be 8. So 8 is what you would use for the pitch setting in the steps calculators.
