Wanhao D9 MK2 upgrade to rails?
« on: June 23, 2020, 03:02:28 PM »
So, I want to replace my gantry with a linear rail for my x axis for the extruder assembly.  Where do you think I should mount the rail?  Top, Bottom, Front or Back.  I was going to machine a bracket out of aluminum. All ideas welcome...  Thanks!

I would try and keep it in a similar position to the current one, just so you can keep the whole print bed size.. Although it all depends on where and how you are mounting the extruder.
