This is a cylinder which allowed you to fine tune different settings in skeinforge but you can also use it to block your two ball bearings in the Y axis by changing the position of your ball bearings in the other side of your platform and putting the part between the two bearings as we can see in the two pictures. You can help you with a key to maintain the cylinder at the right place between the two baerings while you are putting the axis.


You can remove the ears in the openscad file and use a raft when you are going to print the part with Replicator G it is may be easier to remove from the part.

Thank you for your advice Thantik, I'm a beginner in the field of the 3D printer. Otherwise, It is for the Makerbot thing o matic 3D printer.

You don't really need ears on something like this.  Generally the reason corners peel up is because of heat radiation not dissipating evenly.  Given this is a cylinder, it won't have curling problems.  You put "mickey mouse ears" on sharp corners, like the corners of squares, etc to keep the edges from lifting up.  An even better option is to use the "brim" feature in skeinforge.

What printer is this for?
