Mendel OpenX Carriage Bling
by cdaringe, published
This is a drop-in replacement for the standard mendel x-carriage. It is is inspired by Buback's OpenX Carriage with the following mods:
1) Integrated belt tensioner
2) Fan mounting
3) Some silly features that I think look somewhat artsy/blingin.
The intent of the design was to incorporate the 40+mm square space to fit larger profile extruders, while giving the carriage some steez.
qty 8x // M4 nuts
qty 10x // m4 screws, shortish
qty 2x // m4 screws, longish
qty 2x // M4 washer PER bearing, plus some bonus you may may adjust things with
qty 6x // M3 screws (assume fan mounted!)
qty 6x // m3 nut
qty 10x // m3 washer
qty 10x // cartridge bearings
Print the "plate" file to get everything you need. Install pieces as shown in images.
I printed an older rev w/ a different fan mount in the pictures (also, with a poorly calibrated printer), but it should all still work dandy. Infact, prints are looking fantastic with this little fella now! Enjoy.
