I'm also working on something to replace the bulky hinges with a miniature insert that will do the same thing smiling smiley

That will allow another idea I started to develop some times ago : printed sliders for the Y-axis

It was interesting to try but I'll just keep the lasercut y-carriage.



- The printed sliders in the last configuration (only on the inner side of the frame) had too much play, and the inserted hinge was not locked on the extrusion : it could move in Z, while the new version of the hinge-inner cut in half the printed volume and so the gain is less important (I prefer to be safe with the original hinge mecanism).
