After the trouble with the magnets and the old carriage I thought this might need the clamps as well.
With the help of the added bolts the platform slides down firmly to its place and gets lock down with the lever on the right hand side.
When closed the lever is equal with the platform edge and is nicely hidden out of the way.
Two ways of making this work (after printing the left and right stls).
- Drill the holes to the existing carriage with the help of my awesome paint instructions.. or
- Print the original carriage stl's that got modified.
Then insert one 3x10 bolt to the 07part with nut and one original m3 bolt (that came with the bot) to the 08part.
Attach the clamps to the platform and for the lever part I suggest you use either thread locker or a nyloc nut.
Test operation. The platform should slide to its place and the lever should turn to its place with ease and be level with platform edge.
