toolhead doesnt sit flat against the x carriage
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I saw an assembly in production where the toolhead wasnt able to mount flat against the x carriage. I believe there is a tolerance stack between the x carriage and the toolhead mount that interferes with proper mounting

@logan do you think this is the same issue as T7661?

I think this is part of what was mentioned in T7661 but I think is an additional issue. If I understand correctly, the misalignment is due to interference with the lower bearing holder and this issue is with the upside down Y shaped feature being too large vs some of the tool head mounts.

@logan do you have a toolhead that was exhibiting this issue?

I have one with a mount that is more squished than the others, but I don't have any more carriages to check it against.

@logan The changes made to the x carriage seem to fix the issue, at least with the one sample I printed off. T7685 is the slice request to test more
