Hi @all
This is a better X Carriage for the PrintrBot.
I have build one to use it as a little CNC with a Dremel 3000, but the original was to lose.
This new one needs two more linear bearing for more stability.
It works much better without any problems.
Here the link to the Dremel holder for the PrintrBot:


It was printed with 0,3mm layer
thickness and drawn with 123d Make.

Can you provide more information on this? I have a printrbot simple metal and want to get a dremel attachment. its hard to tell from the pic what else is needed, thanks

I don't know about its working with the Printerbot simple Metal. I have designed it for the old Printerbot 3D Printer.
To rebuild it you need 4 liniar bearings and the other 3D Printed Dremel holder. Link is in the description.
