M5 T-slot nut substitute
by csweichel, published
With this thing, all load of the joint is put on a 1mm washer, held in place together with the M5 half-nut.
This substitute prints without support and should be sliced at 0.2mm layer-height. If sliced at a different height, chances are it won't fit.
This part served as a T-Slot nut substitute for my MendelMax build, using uk.rs-online.com/web/p/products/837-234/ nuts and uk.rs-online.com/web/p/products/525-931/ washers together with KJN extrusions.

you would be incorrect.. after printing them the nut is press fit with the washer on top and a tight fit in the extrusion. once the screw/bolt is even slightly tight the plastic is no longer an issue and it tightness right up. wouldn't recommend a lot of disassambly/rebuild of them but for a set it and forget it. They work like a charm
