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.

u should give try to Cura slicer from ultimaker.. as far as i know i can be made compatible to mendels pretty easy.
80C for PLA adhesion? I've been running 57C on my Mendel, I'll see how they come out tonight, I need some new ones for my Mendel, and also for a Rostock variant I'm building.

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.
