Long belts rubbing against the pulleys

Hello Forum

I noticed that the long belts are rubbing against some of the pulleys.

The rods are not moving back and forth, the pulley are close to the black spacers, no play at all.

For me this does not look very healthy for the belts, albeit the rubbing seems not to be too bad (no grinded belt particles on the bottom nor twisted belts).

If I would put the pulleys in a line with the belt, so the belts wouldn't rub anymore against the pulleys, the rods would move back and forth.

Should I place washer between the black spacers and the pulleys to fix this problem?

Or is it negligible?

And:

Does this effects the print quality?

Thank you very much,

Martin

Some people have printed new spacers to fix this. I don't think there is anything to worry about though. My prints have been just fine and I have the same issue.

But it's good to try and fix it if possible. You might learn a thing or 2 :)

This is relative normal. At the beginning you can also find black dust on the bottom of Printer.

Thank you for your quick replies!

I was wondering if this affects the printing quality (as well as the belt lifetime) so I think I will fix this.
