i printed the x carriage on the belt tensioner side and my linear bearings are not fitting exactly. actually they are loose and can move and don't fit tight.

are the parts meant to be used with normal lm8uu bearings or with igus drylin bearings that have an outer diameter of 15 mm?

besides that it looks well done!

I have installed lm8uu bearings. During installation, I had to press this a little.

Hmm okay. Then I have a weird problem. When I open the two ends in the slicer there is a difference in sizes between the motor side and the tensioner side. I added two screenshots for showing what I mean. The scaling is 100% for both and the end on the tensioner side has a bigger size for the bearings, where the size for the rod is smaller. Please upload a corrected version of the model since I really like the design.

Are there any changes apart from the threaded rod mounts in the x-axis things?

What related?

I meant changes from the stock anet a8 x-things
