Found some 2"x6"x0.125" aluminum tubing. I'm going to try to make this axis housing to work on any axis. It will have 8 outside reach V-wheels four in each v-slot plus two more on the drive slot. You can mount on the open face an X-axis plate and then build the same for the X-axis. You could also use a short length for the Z-axis and instead use the traditional z-axis screw and motor mount.
Idea for any axis support and Drive
Just an idea right now but will attempt a prototype in the near future. Not sure if this has been tried before or not.....
