Hi, I’m sure this has been asked before but I haven’t run across it yet.
What are the hardware differences between the old carriage design and the new carriage design?
I almost done printing my news parts, and I need different bolts lengths, etc.. get them upfront.

The changes were made more than a year ago. The parts page and thingiverse are current.April 8, 2017 at 9:47 am #31066
Thanks for the fast response
I suppose if I dig long enough I’ll find the old parts page..
I just thought there might be a post talking about what the hardware changes are between the old and the new configs
(So I can make just one trip to the hardware store)

Are you saying you have the old one and you are upgrading?
I should have linked this somewhere but It was cool digging through some of the older design threads. Only things you should need to buy are, 4×2.5″ and 1×5″, 5/16 bolts.April 8, 2017 at 4:57 pm #31108
You are correct, I’m upgrading.. Looking forward to getting rid of the old carriage.

Is the rail spacing (in Z direction) the same between the old and new? Would be nice to keep my old corner blocks and XY for now.
Thanks!April 9, 2017 at 10:00 am #31139
the 23.5 is the same, the other two are very close, close enough probably not to worry about it.April 9, 2017 at 2:05 pm #31147
I was assuming they were.. Thanks for confirming
