After creating a dual Y rails kit for my Tarantula and see how it effectively eliminating all plays caused by the wheels system I decided to go for the whole nine yards and put together this Z rails kit from remixing a couple of parts from creators. The Vertical Belt Tensioner (by pin13) and the X motor mount from Ultimate TEVO TARANTULA upgrade (by kwijatkowski) are modified to work with MGN9 rails (MGN9H rail block). Great creators!
This kit will move both of the Z lead crews to the front and offset the extruder around 10mm on the Y axis. There isn't much to modify for the X axis other than bolting down the MGN9 rail with a few M3s screws. (update: 6/28/18) X-Carriage is now available to download (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2980917) featuring quick change for laser and such.
(2) 350mm MGN9 Rail w/ MGN9H block
I get these rails from Aliexpress.com for about $11 eachs but the shipping is super slow, though. If you decide to get a rail for your X-axis then I recommend you to get the MGN9, it is overkill to use MGN12.
Models are oriented this way for viewing. please rotate the models flat on bed before slicing
