What if I just need the Belt Upgrade Kit or the Z-Axis Upgrade Kit?

All improvements are listed for the entire bundle. We only recommend purchasing part of the bundle if you already have the other upgraded components. The Belt Upgrade Kit can be purchased separately here and the Z-Axis Upgrade Kit can be purchased separately here.

Will the upgrade kit work with pre-2016 X-Carve Kits?

To get the most out of this upgrade, we highly recommend using the X-Controller Kit and the Wide Makerslide. While the new stepper motors can be run on the original g-shield controller, you will not be getting the full benefit from the upgraded motors.
