Summary

These two carriages are a simple way of easily positioning the y carriage on the rails and do away with the need for four separate bearing holders that each need to be mounted and aligned.
You still need a lower carriage on top of this to mount the upper carriage from and then your pcb heater.
The next evolution of this is http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:29744 which does away with all the bits in between the pcb heater and the carriage at the cost of a longer print time.

Awesome, will be retrofitting this to my Wanhao i3 V2. Been trying to look for a 2x2 LM8UU frame with a low enough profile. Almost printed your other one except that it was too high for my i3.

Cleverly designed the belt clamps on the underside of the carriage - they need to go on the top side. just put the existing clamp on the top and bolt through from below and it all works fine :)

Fixed a bug with the earlier version STL file, should work this time. It is close to the maximum you can print on a 200x200mm bed so you might need to adjust the position on the bed and fine tune your end stops to fit it on.
