Minimalistic J Head X Carriage
by Acarius10, published
A minimalistic x carriage for use with a Bowden extruder and a J Head on a Prusa Mendel
I was made aware of the size issue with the M4 Nut in the 1.75mm X Carriage. I uploaded a new file to correct this.
2x M3 x 30 Screws (25mm should work)
2x M3 x 16 Screws
4x M3 Nuts
2x LM8UU Bearings
Parts for a Bowden
2)Clean up, there are multiple holes that need to be cleaned.
3)Insert nuts in their respective nut traps. It is suggested to super glue the belt clamp nuts in.
4)Insert the Bowden tube, and it's nut, then the J Head
5)Clamp the J Head in place with the clamp and 2 M3 x 30 screws
6)Insert the LM8UU Bearings, then zip lock in place
7) Place on axis.
There are 2 different carriages, one for 1.75mm filament and 3.00mm Filament
I am using this in conjunction with Chowderhead's Belt Terminator (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31482) so only one belt clamp is required.
