Mid Span Supports

Post by bharbour » Sat Dec 26, 2015 5:35 pm

I recently upgraded my stock SO2 to 1000mmX1000mm and I made myself a couple of X axis mid-span supports out of ABS plastic sheet. I am surprised at how much rigidity the ABS supports provide. I intended to have three bolts per rail instead of the two, but I ran out of post assembly insertion nuts.

I can provide the Inkscape file if anyone is interested. I actually took the end plate drawing and modified it into the mid span support.

bharbour,

I'd like to see the Inkscape files. I'm in the process of upgrading my S2 to a 1000mm^2 X-carve, and I'd like to add a set of mid-span supports, while I'm building it.

Thanks,
Alex
