One of the objects that has always been on top of my wish list was a Laser Engraver

Finally I get one from GearBest. here the link: 2000mW A5 Mini Laser Engraving Machine.

It is a well done object but the method to fix the GT2 transmission belts to the rails leave me with the doubt to damage the belt if you tight to much the M3 screw, directly acting on the belt surface

So, thanking my 3D printer, in a snap I made an alternative block that I think works in great way. Now the pressure that locks the belt, comes from a rounded dent.

Yes I experimented engraving dry biscuits !

hi can you measure the gantry plate in cad/stl format

Not sure if my 3D printer was not correct, but the rounded "dent" may need to be just a little bit taller. The belts on the laser slipped so I just made the dent taller. This is a very nice alternative to the original clips. Thank you!
