What is the thickness of the carriage? I'm thnking of cutting one in metal, but need to know what thickness of steel or aluminum to purchase.

I've cut base plates from 3mm aluminum and found it to be quite solid. Keep in mind that extra weight is a load on the bearings. Luckily this design has maximum cutouts for weight reduction.

Thank you for posting this, Misan!

Hi, i have in mind to mod the Hephestos carriage bed, to have only 3 screws instead of 4, but i cannot find the proper cad file, the only difference that i can see it's the slot in the center of the plate, here there are only the two holes.
There are any major difference between the two?
I think i can keep the two up corners, delete one of the front and move the other in the center, so i can have three leveling screw.
I've found this http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41YpZdttKhL.jpg but i don't know if it's usable on the Hephestos, in case i can create the cad file and laser cut it.

I am not sure about the measurements but I would bet they are the same. I did not create this one but just extruded the existing DXF from Josef's github, so I do not have the CAD file to share with you. As you say, you can turn the part into a sort of triangle to reduce part's weight.

You're welcome.
