After almost month itโ€™s good to give update :slight_smile:

:white_check_mark: install linear rails
:white_check_mark: find/design mount onto MNG9H rail carrier for Y axis
:white_check_mark: find new proper way to tension belts

Letโ€™s dive little deeper

Instalation of linear rails
Part of progress with most changes :confused:
I wanna buy MNG12H but firend of mine got spare MNG9H to give me for free.
But until instalation I have no idea that bring so many new troubles :sweat_smile:
:x: MNG12 are wider so for MNG9 willbe needed print and use spacer
:x: smaller rails means smaller mounting screws so M3 => need to buy screws and Tnuts :sweat_smile:
:x: most of people used MNG12H so for MNG9 are almost no models shared :cry:

Luckily I found those spacer under rail on Printables

For tension I used published models
Tension of X axis

For Y axis tension I used remix of previous model

X axis mount
For mount X axis onto Y axis carriers I couldnโ€™t find any design so I design my own model.
