3D model description

This is based on the linear axis system by LJ Brumfield (Sorry, it'll not let me reference you in the remix for accreditation but here's the link to the original design https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2789775). This is a great upgrade as it retains the stock carriage components but it will not work if you have the mega gantry blocks or derivatives as the bottom bolt collides with the gantry carriages.
The design here has beefed up the top mounting area to retain rigidity and removed the under-hanging portion beneath the gantry rail. I've also realigned the belt mounts to maintain parallel paths when using my versions of the mega gantry blocks. (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3503426)
As per the original design, the slot in the front X axis carriage mounting plate will need elongating at the bottom of the the slot by around 4mm. This is due to the linear rail raising the carriage in relation to the OEM V wheel design.
All of the stock X carriage is retained.
Thanks to LJ Brumfield again for a great design concept.
