Exchanging the V-wheels by MGN9 Linear guides improves the stiffness of the gantry significantly. We have designed new plates and milled them in 3mm aluminum sheet using the makerCARVER “standard version. The milling gave really good result and the modification works great.
The mod can easily be adjusted to fit the Stainless OX and Openbuilds OX.
Parts for the project can be found in the shop.

We have made an upgrade of the makerCARVER Z-axis. By replacing the X/Z plate and adding MGN9 Linear Guides in stead of the wheels we have improved the stiffness of the gantry.
