I had a fire and didn’t get to it in time to save the black belt that moves the printer head. I need another one sent to me one day UPS if at all possible. I left a message on the website, but I am afraid that they won’t get it until late int the day or even 3 days from now. And I am getting ready for a craft fair. I know that is not their issue, but I am panicking
IF you are really in a hurry, similar belts are available on amazon. i am 99% sure it is a GT2 6 mm belt.
thank you…I will look at that. I am just mortified this happened!
No, you’ll need to measure that belt…it is in no way a 200mm belt.
(I don’t recommend buying your own by the way, but if you must, make sure you get the right size.)
I’m not even sure how to get the remaining bit off
There are instructions here: Removing the Belt/Cleaning the Air Assist Fan
I think you are being badly advised here. The links you’ve been giving will not help you with your problem. I haven’t got anything else to add other than use the GF chat.
I looked and it appears closer to 48" though I cannot get a precise measure, but it is 6 mm
but getting the length correct could be a problem.
It is also an open strip, not a loop belt. The ends are secured in a two piece aluminum block on the carriage with one piece screwed to the other, and cogs on the belt match the block.
Perhaps Scott over @ Open glow could identify it for you. I’m betting Amazon Prime shipping time would be the fastest.
Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear about the damage to your Glowforge.
I’ll follow up in email shortly to arrange a replacement belt.
