Summary

I remixed xilvar's customizable spacer for the MP Select Mini. The original had two versions. One with handles that could be inserted without disassembly, but left the little handles sticking there, and another without the handles that required disassembly.

This is my attempt to get the best of both worlds. When INSERTION_LEVERS is turned on now, it comes with little triangles notched out. Once inserted it should be easy to break off the handle/levers and take them out. You may require tweezers to do this, but in the end you still get the part on, without disassembly, and without extra arms sticking out.

This SCAD requires the Triangles module found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:220868/

I just finished modifying my monoprice select mini with a E3d V6 hot end and heatsink, since the original jammed up so bad out of nowhere, I wasn't going to chance it happening again. The mod went great and even looks great, but I have run into an unforeseen problem, the z height of the nozzle is now too... HIGH. There are plenty of mods for when the nozzle is too low, like when installing a borosilicate plate, but what about too high?
I am thinking I will just buy a borosilicate plate to artificially raise the print bed. There really needs to be a mod to put the z limit switch on a screw rod, especially since bed leveling is going to be a pita if I have to keep removing the plate to adjust the bed level... That is an accident waiting to happen...

Couple of things. First, if your hotend is too high after putting on the E3D V6, then I think you need the zero-offset mount. The fault is with the mount, not the bed or z-switch. Secondly, its recommended to clip the corners off the glass bed for leveling, either way, I find that leveling only has to be done once for a glass bed.
