I'm planning to print this, what infill do you recommend?

(print nozzle is 0.4)

Hi, this is for 1.75 or for 3mm filament?
Thx

Hi! The standard 3mm! Enjoy ;)

I have printed this part for the Printrbot I'm currently making. All I can say is thanks.This design drastically cut down the amount of plastic and parts needed for the X carriage. It works great with my J-Head hotend and Wade's accessible extruder. No complaints so far.

With pleasure ;)

Hi, I've printed this part and noticed that when putting the screws for holding the J-Head there is not much space so the screws are pushed outsite instead of going straigh... is this normal? Thanks

Thanks for the answer, I've printed another one, with this one assembled hehe. I really love it, it makes the printrbot much more stable. now I just need to find a fan mount, I've been looking and can't seem to find a decent one :/ any tips on that? Thanks once again

I guess your print was not clean enough, especially the J-head hole, which need to be extremely well cleaned. Then the holes Jhead will fit to the carriage and the screws should go straight instead of being deviated by the superior part of the JHead.

Awesome!  Been having issues with J Head mounting on mine.  Busy printing now.  PS:  That fan mount in the photo, can you perhaps point me to it?

Thanks, if you may wait next week I'll put the fan extension online. I'm far of my computer this week.

Well the fan mount is not so great...Too far away... So I may make another one another time...Sorry ;)
