Broken y-axis tensioner while assembly  

New Member


I live in the Pittsburgh area I had an incident in which the smaller of the two y-axis belt tensioners cracked as I was about to complete assembly.  Does anyone have a spare or have dealt with this type of issue to get a replacement?

Below are links to the broken part (if that helps).

You've posted in the mini forum and these look like mk 3 parts, you may get a better response in the right section of the forum.

If you go to the "world" section of the website you may find a local prusa owner who will "print on demand", or a makerspace where you might be able to print the parts yourself. It may also be worth a web chat with support, they might send you replacements as they broke during assembly, I don't know how they view such incidents. You should also be able to buy replacements in the e-shop as a last resort.

Thanks Gordon for the info!  I saw the assembly forum when I first came here but didn’t realize it was under the Mini section. I will follow your advise to hopefully solve my problem!
