Idea for better bed consistency

Post by TheBum » Thu Jul 11, 2019 3:20 pm

Has anyone tried putting a triad of wheels on the corners of the bed, clamped around the Z rails similar to what's done on the Crane? It seems to me that this would smooth out Z movement and make the bed less susceptible to shaking in the x-y plane. The wheels should also have a longer service life than the sliders because there's very little friction with the wheels.

Hi, this is a really good idea, can you pls share some pictures to better understand. I have just add new bed head with my current frame here in Australia. So to add wheels definitely a good idea!
