I had a little time this evening and used it to check assembly heights. I realized that I needed to lift the carriage motor mount up about an inch for the GT2 belt to attach to it. I made a few small changes to the design as well. Here’s the new part layout:
I also drew up a template for the slingshots. Something simple that will help me locate the holes I need to drill out. I’m not quite there yet, but I’ve been itching to get it drawn and cut out.
My next step in to create an idler mechanism and support assembly for the other end of the belt. I need to use the lathe to make the actual idler and a small delrin tube, and also draw up plans for the assembly to bring the idler to the right height.
