      Well, I started this build a very long time ago, and to be honest I got so tied up infinishingit and posting it on Thingi that I simply never made it back here to update anything. It's been completed and is being used by dozens people all over the world (last guy was in Spain..pretty cool :).

      I couldn't be more pleased with the results and the reception by the Folgertech community has been outstanding. I have since added two Generations of the X-Carriage upgrade as well.

      In-lieu-of writing in up the build again, or simply doing a copy/paste I'll just provide links to the Thingi Post, which will provide all the model files, a BOM and the ongoing dialog between myself and other builds.

      if you venture over to my Thingi Page it might be a good time to check out my other projects that utilize various OB hardware or are related to the V-Slot rail system.

      Thanks to Mark and OB for supply the basic hardware needed to get these upgrades done :)

      Folgertech Prusa i3 2020 Y-Axis Upgrade (Openbuilds V-Slot Rail System)

      BTW: These upgrades although specifically designed the Folgertech Printer, they should transcend into other Prusa i3 models and well as any 2020 based printer.

    Reason for this Build

    The LM8UU Linear bearings are cheap, noisy and unreliable. To find quality replacement are way too expensive and I'm not sure they would be any less noisy. I am currently using the Drylin Solid bearings with reasonable success, however the thought of using quality ball bearing and a linear rail is very attractive.
