Hello i had already bought before finding your designs the mgn12h rails for my z, x, and y from a seller on ebay the store name is called 3dpower so you can look it up and they included carbon fiber parts but I don't like the way the x and z rails mount so I stated searching on thingy verse and found yours which I love unfortunately it's for mgn9 rails. Before I try to print do you know if it will fit and work with the mgn12 rails I have? Is the mounting on the rail blocks the same size and spacing with the m3 screws etc? And if it's not is there anyway you could please upload an mgn12 full version with all the axis? I'm also making it dual z axis, I bought 2 8mm leadscews and 8mm Id gt2 belt pulleys to make it using 1 motor for the 2 z axis. Either way thank you for your hard work on design of this and I will wait for your reply about the mgn12 setup I hope it work so I can put my tarantula back together. I'm using a second hand delta anycubic plus printer I bought on Craigslist for 150 to print all my replacement brackets I need.

Hello, Moditpc. I am sorry to say that the MGN12H will not fit this and currently I dont have a MGN12H version yet. I am planning to create a version of this dual Zs with no X-axis cross member, meaning no aluminum frame needed to support X carriage and only utilizes the MGN12 rail for the X axis. I imagine this will make the X carriage seem like its floating in mid air ‘cause of low profile of the rail.

I cant start on this project for another month because I am currently so tied up with major home improvement projects. You should ‘follow’ this thing for future updates.
