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

I can't find 272 ball bearings. What other bearings can I use?
I like your work, very nice. Thanks

linear bearing 3*7*2.5 or 3*7*3
by how_eee

how_eee, thank you very much.

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

Have you design one for x carriage :)

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.
