This upgrade can tension the X-axis belt with a wingnut, which improves the printer accuracy.
An existing hole is used for the tensioner bolt.
The motor is hold on place with the motor brace, belt sleeves lock the belt ends and the belt position clips ensures alignment of the belt.
Adjusting rings are used to keep the tension force on the X-axis assembly. Otherwise the Z-axis shafts will be bent and this movement affected.
The original Anet pulley made out of two pieces can be reused, however I now use a bought solid one.
Two variants are added for the belt sleeve:
The "Belt_sleeve_Anet_belt" is suitable for the with steel reinforced belt that came with the printer.
The "Belt_sleeve_flexible_belt" is suitable for a more flexible belt I use now that is a bit thinner.
I can recommend this belt because it makes the printer works smoother.
Fasteners that already came (extra) with the Anet A6:
- 2x bolt M3x18 (for the motor brace)
- 1x countersunk bolt M3x25
- 1x M3 nut
- 1x wingnut M3
The fasteners used for the original support plate and pulley can be reused.
order the one "without teeth 16T 3B"
All parts were printed with a 0.2 layer height setting and PETG filament.
