Today we had access to the RapMan, which meant printing! First parts to print were pulleys by thingiverse user nophead, which are easier to install than the original mendel pulleys, requiring only one flat to be filed onto the stepper shafts. They allow an M3 nut to be installed into the base, and a “grub screw” (aka set screw) to tighten the pulley to a shaft.
