Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

Project is meant to kill two birds with one stone. Fix the flex in the X-axis caused by the floppy 10mm rods, aswell as to add a 52mm spindle.

Parts needed:

4x LMH10UU (you can reuse the LM10 found in the X-axis carriage, but they are pretty shit)
2x MGN12H 350mm linear rails
4x MGN12H blocks
16x M3x16
30x M3x10
30x 2020 t-slot thingies with M3 threads
8x M6x30 (30-40)
1x TR8 with antibacklash nut ~120 mm (just buy the cheapest one and dremel it to length)

Made the actual parts out of aluminium, but I'm sure they can be made out of acrylic on the 3018.

*1x industrial milling machine for making the aluminium parts.

Rest of the parts can be reused from the 3018.
