Prusa Y-Axis upgrade

Upgrading the MK3 with genuine HIWIN linear rails: Worth it?

The MK3 is a really easy platform to upgrade -- but does it need a 200€ HIWIN linear rail kit? Watch the video to see the process and results!

In the end, there was little difference between the prints on the unmodified MK3 and the one with the linear rail upgrade. While the upgrade parts are certainly of good quality, the changed belt tension seems to have made a greater impact than the rails on the Y-axis.
