    Hi All,
    I have an XCarve (post 2016-xcontroller) 1000mm and the max carving size is 750x750mm..i see people have ungraded the axis using Makerslides (1800mm)

    I would like to use open builds material and the V-Slot Linear Rail (1500mm)..
    Has anyone done this and can advise what parts would be required?
    I also see there are options for adding stiffness and height :Dust Boot Clearance Risers & Y-Axis Stiffener Brackets...would this be advisable?

    Ideally a shopping list of all the parts would be great! :) but ill take confirmation on the vslots as a starter....
