Any chance I could get the Inventor or STEP files for the bed part? My zip tie slot on my bed is slightly further in than the stock zip tie slot and I need to rejigger the bed anchor to fit.

Probably. I'm going to have to dig that one up tonight. If I can find it i'll make you a step file to post here. The inventor files are a bit big to store here, so we would need to transfer them via alternative methods.

Any clue whether this will work on a Taz6 by chance?

It will not. Luckily for you, I've already made a Taz 6 variant you can find here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1664882

That one uses the same frame anchor, but replaces the Taz 6 bed button piece with a cable chain anchor. Going from the control box into the cable chain does require a bit of routing.

Thanks... I also found your thread on doing this in the Lulzbot forums. I'm a Prusa MK2 guy, but a buddy of mine has a Taz6, and is wanting to upgrade his like I did the Prusa.
