Another Mendel Inspired Drop-In Makerbot Y-Stage

thing:3202 is awesome, but the belt rubs against the carriage, so thing derivative is an attempt to fix that.
The latest version of the openscad files and STLs is available from http://gitorious.org/hacks/things/trees/master/makerbot-y-stage
Movie of it in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdUrudecH2Y
20101004 update: Moved vertical bearings and added more strengthening
See thing:3202 for instructions for now :)
If you have a heated platform you can print this upside-down to get a really smooth and level platform.
To work with the openscad file do
git clone git://gitorious.org/hacks/things.git
git submodule init
git submodule update
That will get the files in the git repository and check out the awesome MCAD library that is used to draw the bearings.
The openscad file is using some features introduced in openscad 2010.05, so make sure you have that version or newer.
