This is the Heavy Duty Z/X or HDZ. It’s precision milled and designed specifically for the Shapeoko 3 replacing the existing Linear Z and X carriage. It is a significant upgrade to your Shapeoko 3 offering superior rigidity, EZTram and zero loss of Z height during milling and power cycles.
Designed around a ball screw and linear rails it will allow your Z to glide up and down with ease – even with a weighty spindle.
In addition to the above, it features EZTram, a quick way to tram your router.
Disclaimer - This is not designed for the everyday user, but professional users who push their machines to the limits, for most it’s overkill.
This kit comes pre assembled, 95% ready to fit. The only hardware that will come from your existing setup is the spindle mount and limit switches. GRBL changes are handled by Carbide Motion.

NOTE: The HDZ is in a constant state of change and upgrades so the unit you receive might differ from the photos and description above. (If it does, it'll differ in a good way!)
