Thanks, mate - thanks for the design too!

What are Tronxy's new pulleys like?

I don't really have much to compare to since I have mostly tinkered with a Wanhao duplicator I3 before. They look very similar to the openbuild smooth pulleys judging from the pictures. They also use the same 625 bearings as the wheels does (which are all but operating smoothly). I still reckon that toothed pulleys may be optimal but these work well enough that I will wait a while before switching them for something else. The printer is performing well for its price so far even if I look forward to making it even better.

Pic is a 40mm tall cali cat. 50mm/s, 220C/60C temp, 0.2mm layer height. Only upgrade was a new extruder mount with a fang cooler at that point.
