Upgrade your Ender 3 X (hotend) and Z axis V-wheels with ExoSlides. This kit will work with either the base Ender 3, or the Ender 3 Pro.

This kit includes a second 400mm lead screw for dual Z lead screw operation. This kit also includes a 2020 extrusion that is 440mm long (110mm longer than the 330mm outside-to-outside width of the vertical extrusions). If upgrading a printer other than an Ender 3 with this kit, a user sourced extrusion and/or lead screw may be needed.

Compared to V-wheels, ExoSlides offer less wheel wear, lower profile, more mounting options, and the possibility to make two parallel rails that are not over-constrained.

Say goodbye to having to repeatedly having to adjust V-wheel contact tension: the ExoSlides come pre-tensioned with a slight bearing preload, and will never need preload adjustment over the service life!

Also do away with V-wheel wear and dust: the ExoSlides have durable plastic treads that roll on the extrusion surface vs. the rolling and rubbing action of V-wheels.

  • ExoSlide 20P, 4x
  • ExoSlide 20S, 2x

This is by far the best solution to upgrading from stock POM rollers and gantry leveling issues I have found. The kit was of high quality (both parts provided and design), and was fairly easy to install using the provided PDF guide. I would buy this kit again in a heartbeat if I end up with another compatible printer down the road!
