I saw an interesting setup at maker faire today, for a completely different machine then a cnc machine.., but with a similar setup to the MPCNC……what someone did was lay the belt down onto a piece of aluminum so the belt was sandwiched between the rollers and the aluminum. this took some tension off the longer part of the belt so stretching was less of an issue as it moved.. I thought it was an ingenious design element, though might wear the belt faster..we could do something similar with another piece of conduit…..not only would it do that, but add a little rigidity/support on those long runs.
