Minimalistic y-belt holder. Intended for my frame brace. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2067872
You will need 6 M4 screws. If you use the ones included in the Anet A8 shipping, make sure you have some spacers to hand. Also make sure your aluminum H piece is turned up right.
Edit: There is no way, you're gonna be able to get any tension with this belt holder. So make sure you have a working belt tightener. I'm using this one http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1683085

Update: 123 Design was being weird with the stl creation so I've added separate files so you don't have to edit it if you want to print them separately or change the dimensions.

And now a personal rant:
123 Design is a useless pile of horse shit.
Even though its free, I still feel robbed.
The person who created the camera controls must have been an complete idiot.
And it seem like no one got the idea to use common shortcuts.
That program crashed more often in just one hour, than Photoshop and Sony Vegas during years of use TOGETHER...
Last thing I made with this disaster

About your rant. Try Onshape. It's all done online. It's free. It's way easy to use and it's just brilliant!!
One of the ways to tell if a CAD programme is any good, is to see how easy it is to go back and edit something - Onshape is just the best at this :-)

What do the 2 middle screws screw in to? Did you modify your frame by drilling new holes? This needs to be mentioned in the comments.

sry didn't see you comment.

The two screws in the middle hold the second piece of the belt holder in place. I didn't modify anything on the frame.
Like I wrote in my description: If you are using the standard M4 screws of the standard belt holder, you need a few spacers, because the screws are a tad too long.
