Ok so I currently have an Ender 3 printer and it’s been pretty amazing for the price so far. Well I saw that someone had mounted a linear rail on the x axis and I was thinking about doing the same, just for the hell of it. I figure that the bearing block would last a lot longer than the wheels riding on the extrusion would. So my question is, is this something that’s worth doing? I have seen some rails for pretty cheap on eBay but I don’t want to get something that’s worse than what I already have. If the blocks and rail are nice enough, I figured that mounting the hot end to 2 blocks would make it super accurate. If it turns out well, I may even do it to the y or maybe even z axis as well. Thoughts? Previous experiences?
Also, I’m not having any problems with the printer at the moment so this would just be more of a project than an actual need to upgrade. I fix what’s broken and upgrade what isn’t. Lol.
