I could not find a tensioner for the JGAurora, so I designed one.
This thing will adjust the belt routing to have a nice parallel belt/rail. The installation is easy and self explaining. Just a few things to know:
-to drill an M5 thread into the X axis V-slot profile. The hole is still there, you just need to apply the thread. Please check the attached picture.
- 1x M5x20 (depends on the thread in the x rail)
- 2x M5x50 (to tension the system)
- 4x M5 Nuts
- 2 M5x40 Hex screws (axles of the bearings.
I'm using M5 screws for the axles with some adapters to go on using the stock pulleys.
You need to print the following parts twice:
y axis belt tensioner backplate,
Pulley adapter 5mm to 8mmone piece,
If you like my design, feel free to offer me a paypal tip ;-)
Small update on the Backplate, X bracket and Y bracket.
Stronger belt puller.
