3D model description

I didn't really like the way how the x-axis belt has to be tensioned using the stepper motor.
With this design it is much simpler to get the right tension.

Things you will need:
- 5mm screw which has to be cut to the right length (see pictures)
- 2x 5mm washers
- pulley
- 3mm screw (should be around 30mm long)
- 3mm washer
- 3mm nut
- 3mm wing-nut or normal nut with printed thumb-screw

The pulley bracket might need some sanding to fit into the x-end nicely.

I added pictures showing all required parts and the assembly.
Please let me know if something is missing or not clear.

Added a picture of the thing in action - works pretty well :-)
