I've never owned or used a 3D printer so I'm not sure what PetG and 100% fill does for you, but I was wondering about the placement of the threaded rods. They seem pretty far apart.
I usually place them in as close to the U-bolts in the end caps as I can, one on each side of the sled. The U-bolts come with a flat metal strap which I put on the inside of the cap. I try to put the threaded rods with a large SST washer close enough to the u-bolt that the washers on the outside overlaps the metal strap on the inside of the cap. I figured that would pretty much eliminate the structural properties of the end cap from being a factor in any failure that might occur because of an abnormally strong shock load on the av-bay structure.
I'm probably just over-building.
