Prusa open X carriage with bearings.
by foxdewayne, published
This is a derivative work of OpenX Carriage by Buback.
I wanted a rock solid X carriage for my new Mendel Prusa. So after looking through Thingiverse I found Bubacks openX carriage. the problem is that even with a heated platform the edges want to warp when printed on a cupcake because they are so close to the sides of the platform. I completely redesigned the Carriage but kept the great shape.
I sized this to be printed on a Makerbot cupcake.
This carriage uses 10 623 bearings and the belt clamps from the original prusa files. I have not gone back to counter sink the screw heads yet but will at some point. I have included the sketchup file so you can change things however you see fit.
