The design scale is imperial (inches) so scale up by 2450 for metric. It is designed for 6mm GT2 belts and I have used it for several years with no problems. I also have a new improved version ( not on thingiverse ) which will work with both 6 and 9 mm GT2. I strongly recommend using 9mm belts especially with core xy or delta printers ( long belt paths ). 9mm really reduced print ringing.

Cool design, what is the size/scale? It is very small so I scaled it up ~1000x

It is tiny yea... At 1000x does it fit a GT2 6mm belt?

Thanks for sharing, will definitively incorporate this idea in my next project!

Nicely done! Though why does only one side have the extended guide flange?
