Reinforced Prusa X Carriage with Slim LM8UU Holder
by jonaskuehling, published
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..

I used Igus bushings with a 10mm rod, which has the same outer diameter as the LM8UU.
Just realized when installing that there is a clearance issue with the belt clamps mounts.
It fits but the friction is too high. Will remove a bit of material and try again
