Lightweight LM8UU holder (SK8UU)

This is a lightweight LM8UU bearing holder I designed in blender.
It was inspired my another similar design, but it’s lighter – just 4-5 grams, depending on your settings.
I printed it on 0.3mm layer resolution, 3 walls, 20% infill.
It will save you a lot of moving mass on your X/Y axes, and allow you to print much faster.
You can use two zip ties to secure the LM8UU bearing in place, and use just two M5 nuts / bolts to mount the holder. There is no need to use 4 bolts – two work just fine.
I have tested and confirmed that the design works with IGUS bearings too (not printed imitations!). Suitable for any printer, using SK8UU holders e.g. Anet A8 etc.
