This is a shim to trigger the Z-axis limit switch 4.5mm sooner than normal to account for the thickness of the PRINTinZ flexible 3D printer plate. It installs as shown behind the Z-axis ball screw. Use the bed leveling screws to account for any plate thickness variation that is more or less than 4.5mm. The PRINTinZ plates can be found at www.printinz.com

Maybe the thickness of the plates has changed, but this offset was too much, and I had to raise the adjustment screws until they were JUST hanging on, making the build plate way less stable. I ended up scaling this file down to about half it's height in the Z orientation to make it work.

I use BC Technologies heated build plate for the MakerBot Replicator 2 with zebra plate. Do I need this too?

Not if you are replacing the glass with the zebra plate.
