Summary

I´m making a RepRap Prusa with Prusajr's heatedbed. The first thing i surprised me was that standar mendel base don´t fit with Prusajr's heated bed. I had to make an intermediate suport for this. This is my first thing upload to Thingverse.
I cut it from a 2.6 mm marquetry table, Soon i get it in steel or aluminium.

Edited 18th September:

I have corrected an error in the measurement between the centers of Prusa's heatedbed, before it was 210 mm and 209 mm now. The dxf file has been replaced.

I have also uploaded photos of the piece steel laser-cut 3 mm.

No results.

If you constrict the heated bed while it heats up, it will warp. I tape down the heated belt and the glass with Kapton so when it all expands, everything stays flat.

I have screwed the heated bed with M3 and springs, the heated bed will dilate less than one mm. I think that the slack in the holes and the fixation with the springs will absor that little increasing.
