I can't get the belt to fit in where there are two right on top of each other. Would it be bad to scale it up so it fits or...

The measurements of the piece are extremely precise.
The GT2 belt fits perfectly into the slot making it firm.
If you encounter problems, perhaps they are to be found in the printing tolerances of your printer.
Thanks, good work

I was able to get it to fit, but I needed to use pliers to force it into the slot. Works great once I got it there.

I'm glad it's okay!
Thanks for your attention

The original screws, M3 x 18mm

good job, bye
