This part complements the x end idler from prusa i3 rework and allows you to pull the belt without using a screwdriver. It also reduces the load on the axis Z rods.
STL files generated for Prusa i3 rework. The distance between the terminals X-axis is 45 mm. You can adjust them for yourself if you want. Open attached fcstd files in FreeCAD.
