X-Axis Belt dissolving

Post by MaxMK »

I am really happy with my Felix 3.0 and it made some impressive prints already.
During the last couple of prints I noticed that the x-belt is sprinkling small pices of rubber onto the print bed. I am pretty sure this is not normal. :shock:
What can I do besides lowering the pressure?

The only thing I can think of is that you used excessive tension and you've stretched the belt a bit. Resulting in misaligned tooth’s with the stepper pinion so its scraping rubber.
