Prusa Air 2 XL
by Miro87043, published
I made a few simple changes to allow full use of a 200 x 200 mm build platform and increased z travel to 150 mm. I also slightly increased the size of cross brace at the bottom to ensure no rigidity was lost.
Other subtle changes:
Changed the electronics holes to accommodate an Arduino Mega 2560 and Ramps 1.4. I also relocated the electronics up higher and depending on which side you put the pertaining panel the electronics can be mounted on the inside.
I took scotty1024's advice and made a laser cut y motor mount. I doubled the acrylic so its solid and slotted the holes to allow for tensioning and easy removal.
The slots are adjusted for acrylic that is 0.22" (5.6 mm) as that is what's available to me.
Also included is a acrylic base plate for use with Prusa 2 linear bearing mounts and 4 spacers for mounting electronics.
Update: I added spars to the sides that make the frame rock solid. I used acrylic weld to secure them.

Hi, awesome improvements!Â
Can you explain this base plate? You say it's for use with linear bearing mounts so it is obviously for the y-axis but why would you mount electronics there? There also seem to be a lot of holes for which I can not deduce a purpose in this base plate especially the 8mm hole on one side?
I added a photo showing the spar detail on the right. It's the same on the left but must be added prior to the mounting the electronics.
