What is it?

After doing the X Carriage of a CoreXY mechanism printer, i've designed also the Y Carriage, so to complete the XY stage. At the moment al the designs are with magnetic attachment for the extruder block, but as soon as possible i will design also a standard one.

Does it work?

I still have no idea since i've never printed it, gonna try it out as soon as possible and write down a feedback in case it works (hope so). If somebody ever tried a similar method, please let me know.

What do you need for it?

  • 15xS-03-01-N Magnets
  • 8xLM8U linear bearing
  • 4xø8 smooth rod (depends on what size of printing bed you would like to know, if you don't know how to calculate it, just ask)
  • 4x608ZZ bearings (you can use also pulleys if you find the right method to mount them on in way to be free to spin)
  • GT2 Belt (dunno the exact, 1m should me more the sufficient)
  • 8xM3 Bolts and nuts (for GT2 clamps and X Carriage)
  • 4xM4 Bolts and nuts (for bearing holes on Y Carriage)
  • 1xTop_Side_Carriage.stl (you will find it here: X Carriage
  • 1xBottom_Side_Carriage.stl (you will find it here: X Carriage)
  • 1xHotend_Carriage.stl (you will find it here: X Carriage)
  • 2xYCarriage.stl
  • 4xBelt_Carriage.stl (you will find it here: X Carriage)

Future Updates/Mods:

  • Conic holes for easily stick inside the magnets
  • Double magnetic carriage for double extruder
  • Possibility to carry laser for engraving, pencil and more
  • Double precision method implement
  • Changing the sense of belts
  • Adding an easy to adjust Endstop
  • Third stabilizating smooth rod between Y Axis

Feel free to comment, ask, and (whynot?) to try it out leaving a feedback so to optimize project.

You'll want the belts arranged at 90 degrees at the Y carriage pulleys, or you'll get position error near the edges of X travel as the belt angle changes.

Thanks a lot for the feedback.

I will modify the belt clamp asap. The idea is to rotate them at 90 deg and give them a parallel sense of moving.
