belts getting looser ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · belts getting looser ?

I printed these out for my ultimaker and they really helped me improve the quality of my prints.

but these belt tensioners are still perfect but the rubber in the belts have stretched and are now loose again.

I cant fit more of these belt tensioners, as they will start running into the pully wheels.

so what can i do ?

Thanks guys.

Ian :D

I tried quite a few but none worked as well as these....

. I imported his DXF file into AutoCad and made them thinner so I could put two on each bracket....really works well and can tighten the belts really tight and they stay tight...no worries about hitting anything either.... :D
