Hi, I know it is optional and the old ones will still work with the new components for the MK3S+. How many of you upgraded the x-end-idler.stl and x-end-motor.stl? Is it better to upgrade?

Hello,

I've not upgraded to MK3S+ yet but I will. As I feel that adjusting tension on the X belt should be easier with the new X axis parts, I will too and it will also be an opportunity to clean and regrease the bearings of this axis.

MK3s Stock, PS2.3, Fusion360, Debian, Windows 10....

I did the upgrade also for a color change of the printer.  Most parts are white now. 

 

But I liked the new x end parts. The belt tensioning works better and has a little more range.
