    Hello Openbuilds forum peoples!

    I've been working on a project to add Openbuilds Openrail V rails to the Lulzbot TAZ series of open source printers, and the question came up "How often does one generally have to adjust the wheel tension on one of these systems?" I realize every application is going to be different, but I'm hopeing to get a feel for how often these might need to be tinkered with to keep them moving smoothly.

    Please let me know what your experiance with them so far has been. You can see the project here if you are curious: https://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2252&start=20

    Almost no need for adjustment, especially with 3D printers. I have a Delta with 3 wheels on every "axis" on a ABS frame so it's a bit different.
