i think to make same of similar... but i think to make some change:

a) smaller nut (less high)

b) do not use lower samll nuts, i think di make some "sign" in the lowe side of big nuts and from bottom some plastic nail to "click" and stop position...

Did you make any new change ?

Hi,

Actually I moved from UK last year and I was forced to sell my beloved delta printer. Now I have a MP mini V2 because it was on sale in Canada last xmas.
So, answering your question, I haven't made any change, but I think your ideas are very interesting and I suggest you to give them a go :)

Cheers,
Ricardo

What are the dimensions for the prints? For some reason, when I print, they're very large. Using Cura 2.7.0 Beta. If I could get a diameter for one of the nuts, I can scale as needed. Also, thanks for putting these up for everyone to use!

Hi,

You can have a look at the original Fusion 360 design:

I added a new image with a measurement to the description.

HI, I'm very interested in this project. could you explain the usage of the Nut_counter? In the image I can't see it mounted.

thanks!

Hi,

The Nut_counter is the first nut (from bottom to top). If you look at the first photograph, you may see it. It is supposed to lock the big, tough, nut.

Step-by-step:
1) Attach the Base to your printer (you should center it in relation to each triangle vertice).
2) Add the Nut_counter and put it all the way down to free the way.
3) Add the Nut.
4) Add your printer bed.
5) Add the Nut_small_new.
6) Level the bed using the Nut and the Nut_small_new.
7) Use the Nut_counter to lock the Nut.
8) Print the AnycubicTestRing140 to verify if it's working. I also paused the printer to correct the bed level during the very first layers.

Be careful, depending on your setup for brim/skirt, your printer may hit the bed levelers when printing the AnycubicTestRing140. I've changed my Machine settings to a bed with diameter of 150mm to avoid surprises.

This bed leveler is not a very good solution because it's quite hard to get the leveling right and if you remove the bed plate you need to redo it. In the future, I will design something better that allows me to attach an extra removable bed plate or, even better, remove the one I have without destroying the leveling.

Here I'm explaining how I did it:

follwed your link and the code for level callibradtion is a very cool idea
