A vertical X-axis for the Mendel90 by Nophead.


This is my work in progress design for a vertical X-axis for the Mendel90. This design has a much smaller print volume and is possible a bit more ridgid than the original horizontal x-axis by Nophead.
The downside is that this design might not be compatible with all hot-ends and the small spacing between the rods might give a wobbly x-car if the bearings and rods don't tightly fit together.

i dont understand why this is better than the original. could you explain? :-) thanks for sharing

i plan to build an mandel90 again, and ask me if this is a cool mod. but i dont understand .. can you please explain .. i am realy interested in this mod .. thanks

Could you provide information about the mounting of the belts? I can't see it in the pictures.

Oh, I like this!

I'd like to modify it so I can attach a fan to the x carriage. Could you be persuaded to share the original files? Please? :)

I added Vx-axis_v1p5.scad this is my design file with the latest version. Warning: it is pretty messy.

i will do a m90 retrofit eventually. LOOK @THAT BARREL HEATSINK! Yea!!! We all need one of those!
