Almost perfect. I use now @lars86 block, bo these do not hold belt properly IMHO. So I can hear scratching on one axis now.

 

@mariuszem, I find that hard to believe. What do you mean you "hear scratching". That is not how you would determine a failure to clamp the belt. If you want to check belt holding, grab the belt near the block in one have, grab the block in your other and give a tug. You should see no movement between the two.

Are you running GT2 belts?

    After thinking about it some more, I can see the potential for layer height settings causing too thin a clamp thickness.

    I published a tighter clamp variant, if you want to give it a try.

    @lars86 I do use GT2. I've printed all in 0.1 layer. My first test was a "tug test". Failed - belt moved (on reassembled printer:/). But clamp with heat shrink tubing on it, worked as it should. I'll print new clamp tommorow.

    Can the original wooden blocks work with gt2 belts and pulleys?
    @amedee said it doesn't work because the belts are 4mm too short. If I get a 610 mm belt will it work with the wooden blocks?

    It will work. 610 are more available than 606 indeed:)

    As I can tell you, 606 are awesome, couse you do not need to check tension, and UMO prints prefectly on these using 80 steps. Calibration STLs are perfect.
