I tried the last weeks to make a lightweight replacement direct drive carriage for the x axis. I came up with this idea. Its out of two parts an its designed for the standard Anet Steppers. I used as always, sintered bronze bushings. I made a version with 4 and 3 bushings but for me, because the rods aren't that straight, works the 3 bushing version fine. The is no play and it glides very good. Its now very silent and solid. I only weighted the backplate and its with 47 Grams against 200g the stock carriage a little bit lighter. All other Stock Parts can be used.
