Universal X Gantry Plate Linear Rail Kit
To mount the MUTANT to your Machine, you can purchase one of our two types of Universal X Gantry Plate Kits. This kit is for linear rail carriages and it mounts in place of any X Gantry or X Carriage that would mount to MGN12H linear rail bearings and has screw locations for both top or front-mounted rails. Your belts can be mounted vertically or horizontally as there are pins for each setup. Has 4x M3 threaded holes to mount the MUTANT Fixed Plate.
Universal X Gantry Plate Linear Rail Kit includes:
- Universal X Plate Linear Bearing
- 4x M3x8 screws
- 1-meter Timing Belt LL-2GT
Alternatively, you can print an interface plate and use this mount to your current X gantry plate:
- Download and print one of the many interface plates available https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4708312 You can use our included heat press inserts to create the 4 threaded mounts for the MUTANT Fixed Plate. We currently have plates to fit nearly every Creality and clone machines, BLV Ender 3, Geeetech A10 and A30 series, and Open Builds 3 and 4 wheel V slots, and Prusa i3 style machines. More coming soon!
- Create your own interface plate, use our template (pdf) or 3D files https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4718223 and design the hole positions needed to mount it to your machine, use our included heat press inserts to create the 4 threaded mounts for the MUTANT Fixed Plate.
Super easy way to support easy hotend swaps
Great mount and as stated in title it works with the bigtreetech hermit crab but provides much more solid mount. I have my rail on top of the x axis gantry.
I tried to install wham Bam. Unfortunately it does not work with the transport system. It need to proceed some changes on it.
As soon it is ready I‘m more than happy to feedback to you
This 3d print industry can be funny sometimes. Almost everyone is switching to linear rails, yet youd be suprised how hard it is to find metal mounting parts for your tool heads. This does the job, and does the job well. I would employ that wham bam continue to fill the void with commonsense practical solutions. If I were to make a suggestion. I think it would be fantastic, if u made mounts that targeted specific hotends too.
I used this mount to build all metal tool head (hemera revo + ender 5 pro on a top mounted x-axis linear rail) so that i can print high temp materials.
The plate is great quality and is pretty tough. I got it mounted to my rails and noticed the belt was rubbing in the v slot extrusions. I noticed the notches in the plate were more towards the front of the printer than the stock carriage slots and that caused the belt to rub the extrusion.
With the help from the Wham Bam support team, I got the correct part printed to extend the notches to work with my Ender 3. This part may be necessary if your rails mount to the front of the 2020 extrusion and the belt is horizontal.
