Hello All,

This is my remix on the FT-5 design. I made this design to fix the several issues I had with my kit when it arrived and to improve the printer to be more stable/rigid and reliable. I am logging my build on reddit and will post the finished STL files and pictures here as they develop.

Update Nov 11, 2016:
The project is on temporary hiatus till I get more supplies and my other printer becomes available. Prepping for a faire.

Print Guide:
For the pulley mounts you need to print:
A part x1
B part x1
Pulley plate x2

Part A and B are mirrored and designed so the pulley mounts happily inside them.
