Reinforced Prusa X Carriage with Slim LM8UU Holder
by jonaskuehling, published
This is a reinforced Version of Simon's x carriage based on my slim LM8UU holders.
I basically changed the following:
- Beefed up the LM8UU clamps to 3mm wall thickness for better strength
- Added extra support braces for stiffer frame, also between the belt clamps to allow more belt tightness without twisting the clamps or the whole carriage
- Applied two fan mounts for multi-purpose fan or equipment installation (tiltable fan duct, LED ring light, etc.). Dimensions of mounting blocks are 10x10x15mm with hole for M3 screw right in the middle..
Slice, Print. 25% infill is just fine.
I'm using slic3r with 25% rectangular infill at 45 degrees, 3 perimeters, 3 solid layers, 0.25mm layer height and 0.35mm nozzle.
