WorkHorse 3D Printer X-Carriage Design
The Workhorse Gantry and Carriage design is a heavy-duty solution for lead screw/ball screw motion. I have a newer design that's a little lighter but I haven't tested it out yet.
X and Y-Carriages use 4 M3x6mm Screws
- X-Carriage (X-Axis) 2pcs
- Y-Carriage (Y-Axis) 1pc
- M3x6mm Screws 12pcs (4 for each Carriage)
The x-axis carriage screws down to the 2040 Y-axis extrusion and rail. *Note* The y-axis 2040 extrusion must have hand tapped M5 threaded holes.

The Workhorse Printer uses MGN12H linear rails with a 20mm x 20mm Hole Pattern.
