Printing out the first half of the Y carriage

I had to update the design of my Y idler to accommodate the huge belt idler .

Realized I didn't draw any holes for the zip-ties, guess I'll have to drill  them out by hand

Starting the second Y carriage

Weeeee I'm a plane!
Drilled out the zip-tie holes, crammed the linear bearings and did some post processing. Everything fits, woohoo! Just waiting for the second part to finish so I can test fit the heat bed.

Need to purchase some 1/4" nuts later.
