X-axis idler assembly in PLA
Just for kicks, I printed out a couple of belt clamps and a pulley. Oh, and about 95% of an X-axis restraint (software crash, blue-tinged air etc.) but it looks like we're on our way to starting an X-axis here.
I've switched to a 0.78mm nozzle now, and the new shape is an improvement in preventing strings - or at least shedding them quickly - but not much so. Also having a few problems with PLA not adhering to my new machine bed so well. Hopefully a good wipe-down with acetone and a scrape with a wire brush (for the Reprap, not me) will improve things.
