This design is very nice, love the idea of adding a pulley to reduce required force from extruder motor. Print turned out well but pulley did experience loss of quality due to overhang. Do I need to generate supports for the pulley wheel or do I need to address a different problem? Thanks!

It's been a while since I last printed this one, but the pulley does come out much better with supports.

Thanks for giving my design a try. I hope it works for you. I haven't had any issues with it since installation.

Merci pour cette pièce, je viens de l'installer et c'ets pas mal du tout. Par contre j'ai dû rentrer en force (en limant un peu) mes roulements, c'est très serré (j'ai imprimé d'autres pièces où l'on met un roulement et je n'ai pas eu ce soucis donc je ne pense pas que ce soit lié à mon imprimante).

Je suis content que cela a fonctionné pour vous. Merci pour les commentaires sur l'ajustement du roulement.

how did you put the filament roll on the top? which stl did you use?

CR10 Spool Frame Mount

Printed OK but think g code is off a little.
Top section is slightly off centre to the bottom section.
Any ideas

Sorry about the slow reply. I've been in bed recovering from an illness.

I've double checked the G-code and everything is o.k.
From your pictures it looks like you had an x or y axis shift during print.
I had a similar issue with my Cr 10 a couple months back.
Turned out the connector for my X axis servo motor was loose.

Hope you're feeling better.
I've still used it with no problems just wondered why it happened.
I'll look into the x axis thing.
Many thanks

You are very welcome.

Thanks for the picture. It is great to see my design used by someone.
