    Take the drawings from the Ox files and just redraw your own. If there is not a format for the regular plates that can be imported into Fusion 360, I have found it to be much quicker to just redraw a file in Fusion from the measurements especially with the mirror function. Take the hole spacing from the old Ox plates and then just draw the holes for the X gantry however high you want them. I did something similar in my CNC build. My X gantry is higher than a normal Ox. I used the wheel hole spacings from the Ox plates but changed the X axis beam connections. I also used two 2080 beams bolted together rather than two 2060s. The files are uploaded if you want to look at them. But I do not know how high you want to go. Also, my plates were designed for screw drive not belt.

    Thanks. That is so much easier than what was shown in the video I watched earlier.
