Ultimaker Belt Tensioner 5000
by jamesm1, published
The Ultimaker belt tensioner 5000, directly replacing and superseding, the belt tensioner 4000, and previous 3000 and 2000, 1500, and 500e models. Got a Belt, get it tight.
I needed to tighten my belts, and i didnt really like the other deisgns, so heres mine, very compact, just pop off the three nuts(dont pull out the bolts) slip it on, loosen the pulley's to get the tension around the belt, put the nuts back on but dont tighten, adjust by pushing it(down or up depending if its front or back) and nip up the bolts. Works for me, enjoy.
EDIT, new picture to help explain fitting it.
