Awesome! maybe thi'll help me with my layer lines. but Do I need a new Y carriage btw? do you know any y carriages that use 5mm idlers?

I was thinking of something like the voron that uses non idler pulleys screwed onto a 5mm shaft but that's hard to design!

These should be fully compatible with the reference HEVO design. All belt paths are in the same planes. Also, check my other designs, I published a set of parts (including the Y carriages) that use Gates 5mm idlers that is fully compatible with this.

this is exactly what I was hoping for! can you recreate this for 2020 and 8mm rods?

Recreating for a 2020 frame would take a very significant effort. I will not be doing this. However, I have provided step files so please, let me know if you undertake this and how it goes.

I am a noob when it comes to designing (specifically altering a step file) - so pretty sure I couldn't do it

The Fusion360 part isn't that bad. Check out youtube videos by Lars Christensen and others.


Can you create parts for Linear Rods: Y 8mm ?


Not real soon, but since I did the same mod for my other XY Axis parts I'll do it for this. I need to focus on finishing the rest of the printer for now though.
