Agibson , many have requested a 9mm version, someone needs to get me the dimensions of the idler so I can make one.

Here are the dimensions. I deleted the previous post as I got the dimensions for the wrong pulley.

9mm version posted!...i've made the center part 3mm wider so should go well! it's only 30g of filament so print out and measure, if there's issues i'll tweak and you should be good

What CAD package did you use to make that?, looks superb :-)

Thanks. It looks like it is going to fit just fine. I have to wait until I source some screws/bolts for it to try it though.

I used fusion 360 and just used the abiltiy to show dimensions for sketches. I created a second sketch after it was done to show the extrusion distances at the top. They are just lines close to the original extents that are not attached to anything so that I can dimension them independent of the object. Fusion kept trying to attach them to existing lines (coincident) so I had to remove the coincident so that I could dimension them.

With the MK2 upgrade kit, my 300 kit came with the wider belt and pulleys (like the bigger printers have). It looks like I can just take 3D Builder, slice the parts in the center and stretch them 10 mm to make it fit and get a 10 mm longer bolt for the pulley.
