SCV8UU linear bearing block is the ideal replacement for printed or laser cut MendelMax Y-Carriage.

Simplified design by dumping the 2 stage print platform. The single piece of print platform is now seated directly on top of the SCV8UU's flat surface. It will slide above the aluminium extrusion with 1mm clearance.

The Y-Axis belt is clamped onto one of the SCV8UU to transfer linear movement to the print platform.

Complete MendelMax 1.5 kit with SCV8UU Y-Carriage available from Blomker Industries http://stores.ebay.com/Blomker-Industries

Using SCV8UU with Jmil's Compact Y Rod Holders (Thing:24510) is perfect because the print platform will be positioned slightly above the front aluminium extrusion with 1mm clearance. This allow the print platform to slide above the extrusion and not limiting the Y-Axis travel distance.

Print a copy of the SCV8UU T5 Belt Clamp and assemble with the following material :

4 x SCV8UU
2 x M3(35mm) bolt
2 x M3 nut
1 x Printed T5 Belt Clamp for SCV8UU
1 x Print Platform (Can be 3mm Aluminium Plate or 9mm MDF)

Do you have an original SCAD file by chance? I'd love this for the GT2 belt spacing!

Great idea, i love it.But why you don' t use only three linear bearings ?
