Description

Based on this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:38300 and the wooden one Ultimaker now sends with new kits.
Each notch advances the pulley by 60 degrees.
You can test how square your axis are now by printing just one of these,
clicking it on and sliding it back and forth with two hands. The 6mm
axis shouldn't move. Or print 2 for calibrating/adjusting.
Print at 100% fill, you'll want a slicer that can fill thin walls.
Clean out the respective holes with a 6mm and 8mm drill bit.
This is the link to instructions from Ultimaker for aligning your axis http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Calibrate

Comments, as well as "I made one"'s should be visible in the timeline.

I can't see a section if you make someones model so I don't know where your photo came from.

You are welcome to use my photo if you like. I'm just glad you made the tool :)

I'm not sure what you mean by your last sentence: "Can't see a made section in here either. ???" ?

Cheers

Heh is right. I didn't actually do that or know where your photo came from. I have put mine back as default and left yours there too. Can't see a made section in here either. ??? Thanks.

Super awesome tool! I use it as first adjustment and then use "Ultimaker XY Axis Square" to make fine adjustments later on.
Feedback:
Keep it up!

Nice and efficient design, in terms of material consumption. Still very versatile.
