    Hi

    i want to make my own 3d printer out of v slot and i can’t find any plates that is made to fit 4040 v-slot without being too large. I would would really like to know if there is any plate for 4040, like these square for 2020 but for 4040. i searched for 3d printing those from the creakily cr10 that are “on the y axis to hold the x axis” if you see what i mean but i didn’t found any model to print and not heaven any information about the dimensions of these plates to make my owns.

    Please help

    Thanks you

    V-Slot® Gantry Plate - Universal would be the only one, you can always trim it down (angle grinder, hacksaw, etc) if it needs to?

    3D printing: Take a model suitable for the 20mm V-Slot and drag the edge+holes 20mm away from current position

    Or use the Gantry Plate as a starting template when drawing. Dimensional drawings are here: OpenBuilds Parts | OpenBuilds
