Glass Offset Tricky Clippy

Sized for 3.3mm thick glass and Replicator 1.
The goal is to trick your printer to make room for glass on the HBP.

I used 2mm picture type glass from Lowe's. Couple bucks, but I had to buy a glass cutter 'cause theirs was messed up. Sanded sides so I wouldn't cut myself.
For PLA, you can use these clips to hold the glass down too, I just scaled them up a tad.
Thanks again for the clip! No adjustments or post processing required.
On my 2nd print with the PyroCeram and very thin layer of bed solution (abs/acetone mix). This stuff rocks! I leveled the bed after securing the Z-axis clip and taped the glass to the bed...and proceeded to print 4x bed clips (www.thingiverse.com/thing:3568... so I can "Hot-Swap" between my 2x sheets of PyroCeram to keep my production up.
I'll post a "made one" very soon. Waiting on my personal laptop charger to arrive.
Thanks again and peace out yo

Measure the thickness of the "top" (assuming you have oriented it as if you'll be clipping down onto something). I wanted this to be slightly less than my glass thickness (because I had a spring nearly slack), so I sanded it until this measured closer to 3.2mm. YBPMV.
Note the location where the Z axis limit switch makes contact with the platform support structure when you do the "home axes" routine. Clip this onto the plywood at that location. Press firmly to ensure it's all the way on.
Your fingers may be more nimble than mine. I needed forceps to accomplish this.
Use caution as you go to home the axes for the first time with glass on there. Start, maybe, by cranking down on the adjustment nuts a half turn or so.
