As you can see, mine is not running yet so I can't say.
Troy may be able to answer.
Here's the solution I went with for mounting the end supports on the outside.
Also attaching an updated picture of my build. My CNC is going into...
Thanks. Yes, in order to maximise travel, I went with the end supports on the outside. The solution for mounting the motor took time to come up...
Making progress with my build.
Z and Y motor plates ready! All I have left now are the left and right arms/gantry plates.
Here is mine. Still work in progress. Using 1605 mm ball scew on the Z and 2010 on the X/Y and 15mm HIWIN rails.
Mocking it out of 4mm plywood...
I had some flex on my Sphinx with the openbuilds mount. See how I fixed it here:

Hi Troy, I see that the right and left arm drawings are exactly the same. This makes sense to me but wanted to confirm before I start cutting....
Thanks Troy! I'll probably get ordering soon here! I think I'll start with the X first and see how it goes.
Hi, I am thinking about starting this conversion on my 1000x500mm Sphinx. I have the aluminum and want to get the 40x40 V Slots for my X (what you...
Sweet! Are you seeing any notable performance or rigidity difference from the upgrade?
Did you make the X/Y motor mounts and the part that connects the left and right arms to the linear rail carriages (L shaped) as well?
I got Tinkercad to measure the width and length of the model so I scaled the imported SVG to match so I think I got it right now.
For now I'm...
Thanks Giarc! I got it to work with fusion. My one problem is I dont have the exact measurements to scale it.. I opened one of the files (think it...
ok ok X then :)
Which software did you use to design the parts? I can open them in windows 3D paint but I can't really get any real measurements...
It looks MEAN! I love it.
You said before that your X axis uses 2x1500mm cbeams. I think you meant Y/ The gantry travels on the X which looks...
Thanks! Please keep on posting your progress. I am very interested to see how it comes out and how much more rigid it's going to be!
Got it thanks!
40x40 I assume?
This looks like a great conversion idea. Any idea as for the overall cost for your machine?
Very nice build so far! A few questions:
1) What are the rails connected to? Is that v-slots?
2) Why three sets of rails? The X axis needs one...
