Thank you for this thing! Thumbs up to you!

Is there a reason you take up so much Z volume. I'm printing one for a friend and I'm not sure if there will be any interference if I add Z volume

Hello, just printed your carriage! - couple of questions:

  1. Are you printing without a fan blowing on the heat sink? or is it just for the photo :D
  2. Those curved endges are fancy, but a bit hard to print: are you using PLA or ABS?
  3. Isn't the hotend ... too hot for that clip?
  4. Can you post the full obj format? I would like to add a clamp for a capacitive sensor.

Thanks a lot in advance.

*4. may be simple make reverse by netfabb basic

The hot end seems about 15 mm closer to the rail thus I lost some print volume in y direction. Could you make a version of x-carriage with longer 'lips'?

Great design. How do you now mount the cooling fan for the extruder?
