There is an issue on original Z axis rod where the Z rod are neither parallel nor perpendicular ! More details here : https://github.com/prusa3d/Original-Prusa-i3/issues/34
This z axis top solve the problem plus it makes the bracket stronger and it increases the Z smooth rod fixation.
It is compatible with Prusa i3 MK2, MK2s and MK2.5 (MK3 has already the fix and is a bit stronger).

- version 1.1 : increase threaded rod hole diameter
- version 1.2 : reduce hexagon hole and add little chamfer. this helps fitting accessories in this hole
- version 2.0 : improve smooth rod hole, add selective infill, improve print settings
- version 2.1 : fix issue with smooth rod length
It is important to follow those print settings due to the selective infill technique
- 3 perimeters
- 5 tops and bottoms
- slic3r PE
Use PETG or ABS filament.I am using Extrudr MF-PETG Neon Orange which is very very close to Prusa orange.
Might be good to reduce the speed a bit because of the small surface on the end of the print.
