sorry about the late reply, didn't see the comment.

I guess I didn't really think about the moint point, as the middle seemed the logical/most aesthetically pleasing point..

 I printed these out and attached them a bit backwards. The posted design requires that you insert the t-nuts into the left/right extrusions which are significantly less accessible than the front/back extrusions.  I may redesign these with the mount point at the corner of the frame.

Is there a reason they were designed to mount on the left/right rails?

Instructions

I wanted to put my PSU and electronics inside my MendelMax (1.5) on a neatly integrated wood board.

Instructions for an already existing MendelMax:

1. Create a wood or other type of floorboard (30x46 cm for a normal build), and make four holes in it (radius 3mm, 30x10mm off the edges).

2. Attach your electronics to the board (I haven't done this myself yet).

3. Place the printed feet at the corners of the board. Make sure the holes in the plastic and wood are aligned.

4. Check that the T-slot nuts that you inserted with much foresight while putting the printer together are in the correct spot.

5. Mount the existing printer on top of the feet, keeping it horizontal so the T-slot nuts don't move.

6. Use the aligned holes and T-slot nuts and small M5 bolts and washers to screw the feet to the printer.

7. Insert two wood screws in each foot.

The STLs are for a vertical gap of 34 MM and 8 MM thick floorboard, which is exactly what is needed to fit in my 5 CM high PSU.
