NOTE: These components shared in this post haven't been fully tested and may require minor modification to get the ideal belt tension. The aim of this post is to use the community to refine the parts and hence collaboration has been allowed.

Hello, what kind of belt should I youse?
A link would be helpfull ;-)
I have a tray of NEMA 17 unipolar (6-wire) steppers i bought from ebay some time ago, any way I can get a copy of the SLDPRT's for the main housing and rear housing so I can scale the housing to a NEMA 17 40mm x 50mm Long stepper?
If anyone would like parts printing i'd be happy to help here:
Daniel! Thanks for the quick I am printing the MKll now.
I was confused and though that the MKll was supposed to be made with the pulley, my bad.
The real question was if there is a file for the X2 configuration to use 2 stepper at once.
The other thing I want to ask is if there is a file to for the use to modify for the use of Nema 17 stepper, those are the ones I can find in Costa Rica.
Thanks in advance!
Hi Abraham, sorry I don't understand the question?
If your printing the Turbine I would absolutely recommend printing the MkII it has some very important features that you will need to make the wind turbine function at its maximum like the tail fin and the slip rings for the electronics.
regarding the Belt drive this is an optional mod, you can use the cogs or belt both do the same job fundamentally.
Does this answer your question?
Wonderfull work!! I am printing the first version right now, is posible to make an X2 assembly with the the old version??
I can't find Gt2 pully in Costa Rica.
