We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This will work for both V2 designs (with & w/o string tension). Included is a fan mount to be compatible with aluminum extruder upgrade.
In response to multiple requests I have developed this GT2 timing belt conversion for the Y axis of the Printrbot Simple. This thing is similar to my original http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:180146
For anybody having trouble printing these parts I have uploaded a 2014 version to Shapeways if you would like to order them online. http://shpws.me/rbxt
This is marked as a work in progress. If you have a success (or failure) please let me know. Feedback is greatly appreciated.
Updated the Belt End Block Rear to accommodate bot the V2 versions. One mounting hole for the version without the Printrbot string tension device and one mounting hole for the current version that includes the string tension device.
2014-01-06: Updated BeltEndBlockGT2Rear for better alignment on Simple model w/String Tension.
2014-01-29: Added BeltEndBlockGT2Front-Fan for those using the early 2014 version Simple with the fan mounted on the side. This will replace the previous BeltEndBlockGT2Front. If your machine has the fan mount included in the Y plate, see next update:
