    Is it possible for someone to check that the following idlers and pulleys from the AS pdfs correspomd to the ones listed in the e3d shop. The codes given on the dozuki for the items don't quite correspond to the codes given in the AS pdfs i.e. P20-2GT-6-A-P5-H10 in the AS pdf vs. M-IDLER-T-GT2-P20-6-A-P5-H100 in the dozuki entry.

    From the X Axis AS PDF. Is it this from the shop?

    IDLER-D12-6-A-P5-H10 https://e3d-online.com/gates-powergripr-smooth-idler-6mm

    From the Y Axis AS PDF

    Those are the correct ones. H10 and H100 are the same thing.

    Thanks Greg. I'm going to be using the Hermes extruder in my setup, would there be any advantage in having a 9mm or 12mm belt system instead of the 6mm currently used?

    If you want to go bigger with heavier tools then yes, probably.

    Due to the lack of space for the upper belt it seems the only reasonable way to allow wider belts with the current setup is to reengineer the X bar. Does this seem like a reasonable conclusion or can you see another way to achieve this? I have looked at using extrusions to space the rails but you lose the advanatges of having accurately machined fixing holes for the rails and idlers.

    edit: Do you think this would work adding 6mm in height to the block mounting.

    The motion system has been designed for 6mm belts. Modifying it for wider belts is possible but not really the way to do it. You're going to have to modify almost all of the components for the wider belt that you may as well do a new design based around the wider belts.

    Ok I'll build one with 6mm belts first and perhaps later try designing one with larger tools in mind. Are you going to be selling the Hiwin rails needed when you finish the ms/tc orders sometime in December?

    Probably not.
