These are the x ends for a Mendel90 that I changed a bit.
Removed part of the walls that hold in the lm8uu bearings to allow them to fit in without having to heat the part with a blow dryer.
Added zip tie holders.
Added a bit more room for the bearing so its not such a tight fit.
On the motor end, changed the motor holes to be just tiny divots. I was having a hard time getting that 45 degree wall to print cleanly at high speed, so instead I just drill out the holes using the divots as center marks.
- On the motor end, removed the mounts for ribbon cables because I just don't use them. Just plain old wires for me.
Here are settings I used in Slic3r. After the print you will need to drill out the holes.
