Three 272 ball bearings instead of one linear bearing.
Much better than linear. Very smooth motion.

I like it. I was going to design and x and y carriage based on this same idea. I'll yours. :)

Nice work! I have been considering similar designs. I like your tension adjustment screw.

Suggestion: Unless you have an undisclosed need for it, I think you could save some plastic (and weight) by shaving off some of the side with the arc.
