This part replaces the acrylic Y-Axis foot which comes with the Ordbot and adds support to the rather flimsy metal plate which holds the belt idler. One simple part which does not interfere with any of the printers workings. Improves belt tension and adjustably.

Designed to work with my Y Motor Support


  1. Print part (Printed with a 3 wall perimeter at .2mm layer height. 20% infill)

  2. Remove the stock acrylic foot and retain bolts and pulley idler plate.

  3. Insert Nylock nut into underside of foot and attach the plate and idler pulley to foot.

  4. Insert 2 M5 t slot nuts into underside of Y axis Makerslide.

  5. Slide onto end of makerslide and re-assemble belt.

  6. Tension and tighten bolts.

This part is beautiful.. its a tiny bit too tall for my build and would love to see one 40mm from flat where extrusion bolts to bottom of the foot.

What hot end did you use for printing that? That infill is to die for...

I am currently running a QU BD extruder. Thanks!

With a MK 7 drive gear.

Likewise, what;'s the plastic that you're using?

Yes what plastic - inquiring minds want to know!

Hey guys, Im based in Australia and am using ABS Filament from http://bilbycnc.com.aubilbycnc.com.au

This is the Grey ABS and was printed at 238 degrees C.

I am also running the bearding modification for the extruder with a MK7 replicator gear.
