PrintrBot Simple X-axis GT2 Belt & Extension Remix
by bringho, published
I had trouble printing the original PrintrBot Simple X-axis GT2 Belt & Extension (Thing 215294) on my far from perfectly calibrated Simple so I decided to remix it into something that would print without any problem on my standard sized bed before installing the Simple XL Upgrade Kit.
No design awards for this one, but if it helps anyone it's worth sharing.
