How many Wide MakerSlides do I need to upgrade my 2015 X-Carve 500mm

I want to stiffen my X-Carve 500 and I think I would like to use the new Wide MakerSlides for this.

How many Wide MakerSlides do I have to order for this?

Does anybody know, where to order these in Europe?

Have a nice day

I don’t think you can order the special wide makerslide outside of Inventables. Regular makerslide is no problem though.

If it is not possible, I order it at Inventables… But first I have to know how many Wide MakerSlides I need ;-9

Inventables does sell upgrade kits for all size machines they sell. That being said if you are only going to upgrade the Y axis, you would only need 1 piece. If you are asking about the length then I don’t know what length you should get but I am pretty sure they only sell 3 lengths 500, 750 and 1000.

No, I do not want the whole upgrade kit.
I already have the X-Controller (bought in UK) and now I wanted to stiffen X-axis and Y-axis at my 500mm machine.

On the original one, there are at least two pieces for the x-axis. How about the Wide MakerSlides? Two, too, or only one?

You would need one for the x. Inventables does sell them separately (I got mine shipped to Germany) if you want to upgrade your y axis as well you would need two more and new raise plates I think Charlie sells some custom made ones.

Thanks a lot for that information.
