This thing has a serious problem if you think you try to use it for a Prusa/Mendel/MendelMax. The motor mount position is wrong, causing the Y-axis position of the belt to be too close to the middle of the X-axis. It doesn't line up with the belt clamp on X carriages. I don't see how this part could possibly work with the above-mentioned RepRap printers.

Yes I recently saw that the X-belt is just above the rear X-rod, I forgot to check that during modeling.
It does'nt line up with most X-carriages, but it can work with some adjustments on my MendelMax for first prints. I'll update it with a better design when I'll be able to print.
