Here are some redesigned X-Carve drag chain mounts for a 15mm x 20mm drag chain on the 1000mm X-Carve. I did my best to increase the rigidity of these parts.
The drag chains I sourced can be found on Amazon but the ones from eBay should work too:
**You'll need to order 3 to get the full range of your x-carve by snapping a few more links on each chain.
You can get the hardware at lowes or homedepot for about $5.
- 8x M4 x 12mm (countersunk)
- 4x M4 x 12mm (button head)
- 10x M4 nylon lock nuts or plain hex nuts (easier installation, but may become loose over time)
- M4 washers (optional)
- 2x M5 x 8mm (button head) (but i used M5 x 10mm with washers)
Part 14058 works but i think it could use more rigidity, feel free to modify my design and beef it up (maybe draw inspiration from an I-Beam) or print in Nylon.
Printed with a .8mm nozzle at .6mm layer height in ABS. All the parts took a total of about 2.5 hrs to print.
I recommend installing the drag chain mounts prior to mounting to the x-carve. If you have clearance issues use a needle nose pliers as your reaction tool.
