Update 15 March 2017:
More update coming for MK2S version.
Update 30 Oct 2016:
Work in progress, removed rear block as there is a flaw in design and dimension. Will udpate soon.
Update 7 Nov 2016:
Design completed, I had printed but yet to install it as i am waiting for my motor damper.
Update 8 Nov 2016:
Installation completed, final fine alignment is done by tighten the prints (compression).
Original Prusa Mk2 kit is hard to build and extremely hard to align. It is assume that a well aligned printer will be quiet and less uneven wear to your bearings.
This is a modified Y-axis block is designed to be a drop in replacement for the "Original Corner Blocks"
All file are version 5.0.
Print time is 4 hour per block.
- Front - 3.5 hours
- Rear - 4.0 hours
- Y motor mount - 1.0 hour
- 100mm Left Z to rear - 0.5 hour (optional)
- 80mm Right Z to rear - 0.5 hour (optional)
Can be use together with LCD without problem.
Drop in replacement, use lesser nuts and bolts.
Ideal position for Y motor mount
Work with damper or without damper motor configuration (Just need to offset pulley)
Work with IGUS RJZM-01-08, which is 16mm in diameter (1mm bigger than default lm8uu)
Easier way to make PRUSA perpendicular
Some tips by Ryan Neufeld for squaring the printer
- Motor mount requires 2x nut and washer to compress against rear block
- I did my print at fast speed, hence sanding was required at some area

Aaron had also made a remix of this design:
Perimeter Shell is 5, Top and Bottom Layer is 3
