The easy Belt tensioner allows you to fine adjust each Belt separately. It can mounted on the existing X-Carriage without modification.
I used 4 M3 Nuts: Two on each side of the tension screws. The Nuts on the Screw-Top side are to secure the Screws after adjust the Belts.

Added a V2 with longer Screw Caps. So they can´t fall off.

Thank you so much for the design!!!

Thanks for sharing your design. But I bug out with this half circular things. How do you fix that to the screw? If I try to tension they fall off every time...

Hey. Thanks.
Hm, i had no Problems with it.
Should i make an V2 with deeper holes. So they cant fall off so easy?

Edit: V2 is in the download Files!

I got it to work with some glue. Maybe it is caused by my current print quality. Longer guidings for the screw shall help alot. Great idea. :)

Thank you for sharing your design. Based on the position of the belts it seems that you are not twisting the belts. Is this correct? If so, have you encountered any issue? I have seen that most people are twistig the belts.

Hi. I've never heard of twisting the Belts. I even don't know why i should do this.
The Printer works without any Problems.
Can you send a link of a twisted belt, so i can have a look on it?

Thank god, ive been trying to design something myself to do this for weeks.

very nice. been waiting for something like this. thanks
