Here is my take (DXF file under "files and drawings") on the Overbuilds "OX" X and Z plates, feel free to use or modify. Build and use at your own risk!
Works perfectly for me, made with well calibrated OX Heavy Duty.
-1/4" 6061 aluminum, 6mm would also work fine.
-22 standard size wheels and 4 mini wheels, 11 eccentrics.
-Adds 4 mini-wheels to the inside of the Z-axis C-beam (OX HD uses 2 - 2080 v-slot for X gantry).
-Greater separation of the X and Z wheels should make it stiffer in both axis.
-Removable Z-axis plate (removable from the X-gantry carriage) make adjustments and rebuilds much easier.
-X-Axis motor pulley closer to the V-Slot for less unsupported belt; reducing stretch on dual belt setups.
-adds 2 more wheels to the bottom of X-axis carriage over stock setup.
-more clearance for corner brackets at ends of X-gantry plate junction, reducing the lost travel.
-dead sexy looks!
