Anet A8 Belt Lock X-Axis
Digital Sqrt is in the process of constructing upgrade kits for its customers. We have tested many of the variants. For one reason or another, we decided not to incorporate them into our kits.
So we decided to come up with our own set of upgrades. Our design team is using many of the good ideas found on Thingiverse (and other places) to design our own parts. However, we took so much data from kennethjiang's part. that we decide to call it a remix.
This is mounted to the back of the effector with 4 M3-0.5 x 6mm screws (Purchase Here)
If you would like a Kit with all the parts, Belt lock and Tensioner(Purchase Here)
This is designed to work with https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2825536
Digital Sqrt is an open source company and we strive to make all of our files available to our customers. The step file and STL are in the Thing Files folder.
