This is awesome! Works great, thank you!

Would it be possible to have the STEP and/or the source for this?
I'd like to experiment with a few tweaks (I think the v-slot profiles can be added if the base is printed vertically).

Hah.. while waiting I tried to modify the original bear idler: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3475507
So far I'm quite satisfied with it, so I don't think I'll attempt to do another one.

Prusa MK3 Bear Full upgrade Y idler + tensioner
by wavexx

Is it possible to make this for the gt2 idler by e3d?

Is it wanted to not have profiles in the design for guidance inside the V-slot? I assume this was for easy printing. Is there a way to correct this easily?

Having the v-slot profile on the model would make it hard to print in petg. In my opinion you don't even need the guidance, just align by hand.

Will this work for mk3 bear?

I believe so.
