do you know that you can add tension on the belt just simply moving the blue metal parts on the upper side of printer ?

This is a bad idea because it flexes the lead screws when you move the blue top plates.

I would be glad if everything was so simple. :-)
But the blue parts on top are fixed in fixed positions at the ends of the aluminum profile and it is impossible to move them a bit unless you create, for example, elongated holes in these blue parts.
In my case (v.4), the belt dangled so much that it would be necessary to move in the longitudinal position by 4 mm

My belt was very floppy out-of-the-box. I just loosened the two top plates and kicked them out slightly. There was enough clearance to fix it.
