Belt Tensioner by Reuben Dec 23, 2012

Description

I like the Ultimaker Belt Tensioner. But the curved edges put me off, so instead I derived this one from that.

After test fitting I ended up with a part that works on my GT2 belts and seems to have removed the belt hopping I was getting.

Going to be using on our Universal laser systems kevlar belts and our dimension 1200es belts : p old belts = low quality prints :
Everything printed fine, even if they are touching the top of the case. Thank you so much!
Worked great for me, I am now printing a 8-hour-job. I hope that the belt tensioners will keep their place ;)

I noticed that the x-axis works great, but the y-axis has a little issue: The tensioners are touching the top of the wooden case just a little bit. It seems as if the printer would do its job nicely, tough.

Instructions

I printed this twice, both times I used a brim of 5mm and a fairly low speed. Turned out great.
