If anyone is using the belt tensioners in the picture (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:854301), I think the belt position is off by about 1.5mm. I fixed it and added a new version (1.3), but haven’t had a chance to test it yet. If you printed a set, sorry about that.

Doh! :frowning:

Good that i printed the wrong (10mm) ones anyway :smiley: Did you update the 8mm version, too?

I know you don’t recommend that filament, but darn those parts look so good!

@Frank_Helmi_Helmschr Yeah, just make sure you use the files that have 8mm and v1-3 in the name. I left the older version there too for now, but I’ll remove them eventually.

@Chris_Brent Thanks! So far, the bearing holders and the z-axis clamps cracked, everything else looks fine. I’ve been able to replace the bearing holders with the same plastic by printing them flat (instead of upright) but I have a PETG set on standby, just in case.

So, yeah I wouldn’t recommend using this plastic for this part, but I’m using it anyway in the reprint :slight_smile: For many other things, it’s fine, and it comes in 1kg spools now which is nice.
