I've been using my first wobbless X mounts for a few months:
But I believe there are a lot of people still suffering with the ribs on their parts. This time I made the anti-wobble spring over a mix of original github prusa v2 parts and MakerGear, for both bushing and lm8uu z guides.

Solidworks Files:


Please use latest versions, check upload date! First versions can have a slack on M8 nut cases.
Should works just fine on latest Slic3r versions for 0.35mm nozzles.
I printed with 0.28mm layer, 2 perimeters, 50% infill
For extrusion width over 0.4mm springs may get weak.
Must be ABS, PLA spring wont work

"Must be ABS, PLA spring wont work"

Nylon? Have you tested the PLA too?

thanks :)

Renato, I did not teste PLA, i just believe it would not work because it is much less flexible. But you can try it. Maybe modifying the part or even change print parameters as "extrusion width" you could make it work. You can print the spring separately to make tests.

thanks, i tried also to make it in nylon.. but to me is too flexibile.

Yes Nylon will be too flexible, probably the hole part will bend. When you test your springs try to move the center up and down. If it bends with a force less than your Z axis static friction, it may cause problems as variations in layer width. Good luck

yes, i made a test :) Thanks

There seems to be no hole for the 8mm rods to go through on these models.

Jim, must drill this hole after print. it's closed so the part can use the bridge feature instead of support material in that region.

Thank you much!
