A few days ago, I changed my mind about using the printed timing pulleys and instead purchased two high quality, 16 teeth GT2 pulleys. Even though the pulleys I printed came out real nice, I kept reading online that I shouldn't skimp on the timing pulleys. As much as I wanted to cut down on the cost of this project, I really didn't want to deal with belts skipping and inaccurate prints.
