Attached is a openscad and STL file for a carriage that used screws as rebar for added stability, and fixes the belt by looping it back on itself.
It also allows for a lot of freedom in movement for the push rods, and mounts to the standard linear rails easily.
I created this to replace the makergeeks carriages I had received with my kit, which did not hold up to the pressure of the belt.
Many thanks for all the ideas people shared in the rep-rap forums and here on thingiverse.
The screws used for re-bar are M3x10 Socket Head Cap Screws.
I got mine from mr. metric here:
I have now been using these for ~6 month without any issues. Also uploaded a couple more photos.
You might need to print with support to avoid sagging of the push-rod mounts. But be sure to keep the alignment screw channel free of support.
I have the part printed in 0.2mm PLA, with 70% infill in operation for 2 months now, and I have not seen the belt slip or the part deform.
