We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Why? Cuz it's retro! Hipsters like Bre will show up at your door just to tell you how cool your extruder is.
Actually, belt drive has several advantages over printed gearing.
This mod changes the motor mount to accommodate belt tensioning and includes a motor-side bearing brace. Mounted on UConduit (shown). I'll be making one for my MendelMax and posting pictures soon.
I have only tested the bowden configuration so far (on my UConduit h-bot http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:102972), so this is a "work in progress" for another week or so. I will be testing the non-bowden configuration soon... although I don't anticipate any problems.

So what's this mean?
We're sure iquizzle would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
