I have created yet another CR-10 belt tensioner.
In this case, I have intended to maintain the looks of the printer while introducing a tensioner.
I hope you all enjoy this design, any advice for improving it is accepted! Please comment if you liked and upload your prints!
Any PLA works great since it's very rigid.
Since this part needs to be quite tough, I would advise to include a dense infill, specially the screw will recieve tension forces so I printed it with 80% infill. The other parts are not that important so less than 50 will be fine..
Take a look at the picture to see how to orient the pieces for printing. The screw will need a RAFT for ensuring first layer width (as well as providing better bed adhesion) but the other parts don't really need it, up to you!
I have design this project as parametric as I have been able to. Thus it is possible to change the parameters as wanted. Just let me know in the coments if you would improve anything and I will updated when I find some time!!
