These are based off of the popular Kühling's X ends (18384) but have been modified to work with RichRap's quick-fit x carriage (19590) as well as mine (37675). These should fit any x carriage, if not let me know what needs to be corrected and I will fix it.

The only issue I had with Kühling's X Ends was that I would not be able to use them for my X Carriage due to the belt clamps being 7.2mm further off of the axis. Instead of shifting the weight of the stepper motor 7.2mm further off to the side, I decided to place it behind the Z Rod to help center it's weight.


print and enjoy!

This is for threaded rod or Techpaladin leadscrews

I have not printed these yet. If you do, let me know how it works and I will take off the work in progress or make changes.

Do you have scad?

Thanks for the update. I'm printing it now.

Sounds great, let me know how it goes.

I'm ready to make these, but I noticed that the servo mount nuts are on the wrong side.

Had today off and finally got to making this change. Enjoy!

can you make this also for Trapezoidal Screw?
Thanks a lot :)

Nice job, they look funky :) I'll have to print a set of these, but at the moment I'm still using 8MM smooth rods and 10mm leadscrews.

Thanks!  They are a bit funky, I will admit that.  I didn't want to raise the motor mount or loose the support of the smooth rod.  

Yes you've built exactly what I was thinking about, if this works you've saved me the trouble thanks :)

No problem, let me know how it works for you!
