Friendlier x/y belt pulley for Mendel/Huxley
by g_koch, published
I was having issues printing the .stl that reprappro provided because Slic3r was trying to get my printer to make two round shells and then extrude tiny, lonely drops to make the teeth.
I made the teeth on the gear more pronounced by reducing the inner diameter, making it easier to get more defined teeth by convincing Slic3r to print all of the teeth in one shell.

Hi Fanfwe. Thanks for your opinion! Like this model, I find Slic3r to be a friendlier program. However, I'd love to see someone print this as sliced by Skeinforge!
Hi, I knew someone would call me out on this. (: Taken from the Reprappro Huxley assembly wiki, it is a "T2.5 PU toothed belt."
That's one of the reasons I stopped using Slic3r and moved to Skeinforge.
Although Skeinforge is a little more complicated to setup right, it makes much nicer prints that Slic3r in my opinion (it won't try to make these tiny lonely drops as you call them, and it would not have any problems with the infill when the perimeters are too close)

Get the extrusion temperature as low as you can get it for the teeth. My first layer was 200Â°C at .5 mm for awesome adhesion to my kapton-covered 80Â°C bed. After the round bit, I reduced it to 174Â°C, but these numbers will vary based on your printer/PLA combo.
