|X Carriage with Extruder mount|
Designing the carriage was the most difficult part. I had 5 different versions and they all just didn't work the way I wanted to be. Figuring out how to mount the linear bearings took a bit of time and every configuration I had increased the length of the X Carriage.
The linear bearing housing. I did not want to have a 360 degree enclosure since that would mean I would have to print vertically which I'm trying to avoid. Printing vertically would just take a long time versus having it laid flat. To solve that problem, I went for a 215 degree enclosure which I'm hoping it will keep the linear bearings from falling out. Only one way to find out.
As of now, I am still waiting for the hotbed and Printrboard to arrive by mail. Once those come in, I can start working on redesigning the Y carriage.
