All parts are deigned to be printed with a layer height of 0.1 mm. Use of a slicer that can combine infill layers is highly recommended to reduce print time.
I am printing 0.1 mm layers with 3 stacked layer (0.3 mm) for all sparse infill.
Slic3r and Kisslicer Pro are known to be capable.
The Idler Hub is an optional design vs. using the Open Builds idler assembly. 2 are required for each tower along with 2X 11 mm OD X 4 mm Wide x 5 mm ID bearings. v2 of the part is ment for the thicker idler arms that are now provided with all kits.
The Trick Truck Belt Spacer is required to keep the belt parallel to the axis of travel if you are using Trick Trucks.
These parts must be printed at 100% infill at 0.1 mm layer height. A larger layer height may create dimensional issues depending on the slicer used.
They must be flat! PLA should provide sufficient strength.
Print at 80-100% infill. The jack screws will put stress on the parts as will final tightening the of 5mm idler screw. If you use these, you will need to replace the stock 30mm long idler screw with a 35mm long screw. A pair of 3mm x 16mm long screws and 3mm nyloc nuts will be need for tensioning.
This part is chunky. We don't want it flexing under heavy retractions and it will see some radiated heat because of proximity to the stepper motor. Print with 20% infill.
ABS or a nylon material is best, but PLA should be fine if your stepper is not running hot or is actively cooled.
Power Supply Bracket
Print with 25% or denser infill. It should not see much heat so PLA is fine.
Print with support enabled
End Stop Cap
Small caps for the end stop screws you can put a wrench on or turn by hand. Stick the screw through with the head going into the counter-bore. Fill flush with epoxy.
The other parts may be printed with infill and layer heights to suit.
