This is a parametric idler pulley for use with a bearing and a timing belt. This is based on Erik's suggestion (here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3616 ) that Huxley should have proper idler pulleys rather than bearings with mudguard washers. Included are STLs for a 623 bearing with a 5mm belt (for Huxley), a 624 bearing with a 5mm belt (for Mendel), and a 608 bearing with 6mm belt (for makerbot).

My extruder needs a new motor, so I haven't tested this.

Hi, It might be worth mentioning that the scad file has a dependency on "hardware.scad" which I take to be a part of the MCAD library. I found a copy on github which I think is correct: https://github.com/elmom/MCADhttps://github.com/elmom/MCAD.


I don't think that's actually used for anything, I just had it in there for previewing the parts. I didn't realize I had left a reference to it in there.

My hardware.scad file was added to MCAD. So yes, that is the right one.
