Did the Ao-101 use the same belt as the AO-100?

I've implemented the upgraded pulleys, but that got me to wondering. Your store shows this belt: http://www.lulzbot.com/?q=products/gt2-1164mm-6mm-belt as a "major upgrade to the T5 belt". So my question is, what kind of belts would an AO-100 have shipped with, and would those be upgrades? Thanks! Tim

Re: Hello! The dreaded Newbie thread here, a couple of quest

Hmm. I wonder if it would still mount to the side of an AO series printer then without major modification. Maybe I'll print the backplate out and see if I can make it line up. I also need to figure out what kind of connectors I want to standardize on for the wiring harness. If i'm going to put a qui...

Re: Hello! The dreaded Newbie thread here, a couple of quest

Discovered another bolt on piece. I've already determined that changing the nozzle of the extruder is a pain in the ass, so I went looking for a quick disconnect, thinking I was going to have to mill one. But someone came up with a quick fit carriage that fits the Ao-100 - A0-101 style bearings http...

Re: Hello! The dreaded Newbie thread here, a couple of quest

I made a discovery, the following X-axis belt tensioner is a direct bolt on fit for the x axis of the Ao-100 and Ao-101 belt, mounting on the existing belt clamp locations: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:135634/#instructions Be sure to drop in the m3 nuts when you are supposed to (like a certain p...

Re: y-belt slipping

I don't have a TAZ so this may not be any help, but I ran into the same type of offset with my AO-100, it ended up being one of the z axis couplers was loose, so the printer was not raising high enough on one side and was actually hitting the side of the part, which caused it to skip on the belt. Th...

Re: Hello! The dreaded Newbie thread here, a couple of quest

I can 100% confirm that the TAZ power supply enclosure pierce will fit the Ao-100 power supply. The mounting screws are offset one screw where you would want, but you get at least 1 fully anchored screw either side, and there is sufficeint space in the metal side pieces to install an additional self...

Re: Hello! The dreaded Newbie thread here, a couple of quest

That did the trick, i'm back up and printing. Attempting the largish (well for me so far anyways) power supply cover thingy. Seems to be working well so far. I jut wish I knew why it insists on making a cocoon for itself at the same time. 2 more extension pieces for the gantry after that and I can s...

Re: Hello! The dreaded Newbie thread here, a couple of quest

ANother quick question if some kind individual has a second. Is there a list of what specific bolts go in the Y axis belt tensioner for an Ao-101 anywhere conveniant? I looked through the various source docs I could find, and I didn't run across one. Also, has anyone implemented an effective X axis ...

Re: Hello! The dreaded Newbie thread here, a couple of quest

Thank you for the reply! I've found a few full up ramps enclosures on thingverse, but not one that looks like an add on, So i'll probably print one of those when I get everything fully dialed in. Ironically I discovered my belt tension was too low while trying to print out the belt tensioner piece f...
