This Y axis belt holder is for a specific Prusa i3 variant - ANet A8.
The original Y belt holder was laser-cut acrylic, which presented 2 problems:
It held the Y belt at a level higher than pulleys at both ends, which resulted in excessive vibration when the plates is near the minimum of maximum of Y axis.
- It felt pretty brittle. I wasn't too sure how much I could tighten it. As the result, I was unable to tighten the Y belt tensioner sufficiently.
This design solves both problems.
You need to duplicate it in your slicer as you will need 2 sets.
It's designed to print without support. Please make sure you break it into individual parts, and rotate the parts appropriately.
The design is available at OnShape here so that anyone can customize it to their own size/need.
