A new x-carriage for my Printrbot+. I wanted to have a little more room for a ducted fan (haven't figured it out yet) around the extruder, and the lasercut x-carriage was a little cramped. So... here's this one.

Update: I've extended the deck enough to accept this part http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25473 and it fits just fine with slight modification to the cooling duct. Also, I've renamed this part to extruder mount as it is not the entire carriage.


Print it, clean up the openings, and fit it onto your Printrbot+/LC

If you want it to work with the fan duct found at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25473 then print out the pbplus_mount_update and put it all together.

I think you have your terminology wrong. The 'carriage' is the bit with the bearings. What you have is the Extruder Mount.

Those are simple fan holders (and one of them is for the printed Printrbot, which I don't have). I was looking to make room for a ducted fan that goes around the extruder, so that I don't get cooling to just one side of the print.

Right on. I'm going to be adding a fan to my Plus soon as well. It's INSANE how much better my prints come out when i fan them with a magazine. Watching this space...
