Solidoodle Lowered Z-Screw Holder by lawsy Jan 7, 2013

Description

This is a straight replacement part for the standard Z-screw holder. Lowers the range of the screw so glass or something else thicker can be used on the heated bed.

You're welcome.
I just replaced my alu bed with a thicker & flatter sheet of aluminium and was going to print one of these for it, but I forgot to print it before disassembling my bed, and when reassembled with the thicker bed the Z screw was too short even when screwed all the way down. I ended up just screwing the screw in upside down (up from the bottom) and it works a charm. :) Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for all your work for the Solidoodle community!

Instructions

I printed at 50% fill. Carefully use M3 screw to cut thread in the part.

Unscrew standard part and replace. Remember to be conservative with the bed height to avoid disaster.

Dimensions in mm.
