This is a new design based on a work I saw in Thingiverse. The design files are available in Autodesk Inventor format only.

Print the two parts and use an M4 nut and screw to adjust the tension. I used these for both X and Y axes, and since they have shoes they will not damage the belt.

I printed 4 shoes in one print with brims (new feature in Slic3r) that helps adhesion to the heated build platfrom.
