This is build plate dial indicator holder for a Makerbot replicator 2. I have included the Solidworks files as you may have a different Indicator that I do. I printed a new back plate for the dial indicator and remove the original and replaced it with the new part. Tap the six holes in the back plate for the dial indicator 8–32 and use alan capscrews to fasten the side plates onto the dial indicator plate. Then install neodymium magnets in the holes in the side plates to allow the dial indicator bracket a better connection to the linear rails.
