There is now a larger "all the holes on one plastic thingy" drill guide if anyone wants it.

That must take hours to print.. I think I'll try it when I'm done tinkering with auto leveling. I am still tinkering with my design :D

There is a slight delay on the Instructions document. i thought i had more than enough M5 T-slot nuts to put this thing together, this thing disagrees with me. More are on the wat, but now i have to wait for shipping.

Perfect timing. I'm about 80% of the way through both the X and Y axis upgrades.
Ran out of filament before more arrived...

Thanks for all of your work on these, and for putting together that TAZ 6 bed guide.

Here is the official 1.0 Draft Instructions document for adding the Y axis Openbuilds rail to a taz 3-6 printer. Please take a minute to look it over and let me know if anythign in it needs clarified or changed if you get a chance.

I would also like to Acknowledge the support of the Openbuilds Fairshare Program (http://openbuildspartstore.com/fairshare-program/) and IT-Works (https://itworks3d.com/), both of whom provided funding or parts for the assembly used in this instruction manual. Thank you for helping me bring this instruction manual to people attempting this modification!

Z axis instruction manual is next, I'm waiting for parts on that one currently

Piercet,

Thanks for this! If you want to feel free to include the acrylic front and rear mounts. The file is on thingiverse and in this thread. If you would like I'll update it to have the center hole for the tension adjustment.
TAZ 5, Open rails X,Y,Z. Marlin 1.1 RC2. Mangrove dual fan, reinforced extruder mount
