This is a great piece. I printed it and like it very much. There are a few things i'd like to have changed:

  • The clamp's mounting holes seem to be for the 10mm version. I did not try, since I reused my old clamp.
  • The hole for the bearing might be a little bit smaller... I don't want to use tape. I usually use heat to insert metal into PLA. (Soldering iron on nuts for example)
  • Increase the diameter of the hole for the threaded rod so it does not interfere with the inner (rotating) part of the bearing. Maybe 19 mm in diameter? And remove any candy from this hole, do it just straight.

Thanks for your feedback! I will work on this problems as soon as I have time.

The Holes in the Clamp are not fitting the holes in the Rodholder. And the hole for the bearing is too big.

SG-O - in reply to Culain

I'm realy sorry to hear that it is not fitting. If you send me some messures, I'll fix this part as fast as possible.
The hole for the ball bearing is too large, so you can compensate small tolerances. A thicker tape will do the trick and lock the bearing in place.

I love your beefed up design. Did you already use this part?

Yes, but only the 10mm Version. This one works perfect.
