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.

should use solidworks...

I built a small fan bracket. see photo on the left. Do you want to have the stl? Or should I upload it? The thing on the photo shows a "beta" version.

Great work! I had the same idea... and secretly hoped someone else would design it before I found the time.
