Summary

This is an improved bed mount for the version of the RepRapPro Mendel which uses M3 screws to attach the bed. It eliminates the fiddly three nut system and replaces them with a spacer and a single nyloc nut. This makes bed leveling and adjustment much easier.

Instructions

This is a drop-in replacement for the current M3-based bed mounts.

Insert a M3 nyloc nut into the nut trap on the mount. A small amount of filing may be required but it needs to be a tight fit.

Attach the new mount then attach the bed as follows (top to bottom):

  1. M3 caphead screw
  2. M3 washer
  3. Bed
  4. Spring
  5. Printed spacer
  6. Bed mount

The printed spacer is optional depending on your springs. It is the same height as the two M3 nuts that were previously used so when used will put the springs under the same compression as before.

Is the version for the legacy RRP Mendel with M3 available?

ajayre - in reply to zyrr

This is the M3 version - see the description.

Damn, I printed this, but it's useless for me. Obviously RRP changed to M5 for the RRP Tricolour...

Design and upload an M5 version. ;)

Quick question before I print this one. There's only one file uploaded, is that the M5 version?
