Up! Plus+ Build Platform Sliding Track

*Eliminates Gekko Board warping.
*I have found that once my Gekko board has flattened out better from using this, it now is able to slide around once fully heated. If you are getting prints with offset layers, use a binder clip instead of the printed plastic clip in the front.
You will need (7) M3x6 Button Head screws.

Wow these clamps saved my part! I set the machine to print ran out the door to work i made them out of PLA and print with abs when the hot abs nozzle hit the clamp it melted it out of the way instantly instead of launching a clip inside my machine Again, and it didnt jam my table up causing me to have to take it apart and move the belt tensioner back to where it should be. I love these clamps cant thank you enough you just saved me 68g abs and hours of repair work on my machine. I now print and dont worry i have flawless prints now and my machine does not screw up thanks again.
And the garolite plate i got from octave is warped like hell i wouldnt try it with these clamps.

*TEST FIT IT BEFORE PRINTING!!!*
Before powering up your printer, install the tracks, and lift (by hand) the platform all the way up to the top. Hold it there and slide the platform back and forth. make sure the tracks don't add any friction to the movement of the platform. If they do, you will need to sand down the sides of the tracks until they clear the sides of the printer. My first ones fit after sanding, second ones fit without modification, so check it!
I recommend giving it an acetone wipe to strengthen it, but you must let it dry for 48hrs before installing it if you do.
Updated files 4/7/13: New (Alternate) Front clips stay attached stronger, but are a little trickier to get on. (bending tab removed, snap on now) Side clips are .5mm thinner and no longer tapered for better printing, and more clearance between bed and posts.
