Another y-carriage design using my unbreakable LM8UU bearing holders.
Designed for 150mm linear rod spacing and measures 175mm x 125mm overall.
Fits on a 200mm x 200mm printer bed.
Includes clamps for XL/T5 belts, T2.5 belts and 3mm pitch GT2-3 belts.
Designed for my Open-Beam Prism printer under construction http://www.nzec.co.nz/r3dwood but will work with Prusa, Mendel Max etc.
Print out one carriage and 4 x bearing holders.
The carriage STL file includes clamps for XL/T5 belts.
If you are using T2.5 belts you will also need to print out T2-5_clamps.STL.
If you are using GT2-3 belts or other 3mm pitch belts print out the GT2_3_clamp.STL.
You will need 4 x LM8UU bearings and 8mm linear rod to suit your printer.
Mount your print bed heater as usual ie:
230mm x 230mm x 6mm thick aluminium plate - mount the carriage directly to the plate then mount the print bed heater to the aluminium plate via 4 x 3mm machine screws (M3 x 20mm) plus springs and thumb wheel adjusters.
Refer to the last few photos to see how this is done.
