I am moving this design off of Thingiverse in protest of their attempt to patent designs originally conceived by the 3D printing community. This file can be found on Github at https://github.com/aBrainDump/MakerFarm-i3-Prusa-Captive-Nuts
For more information, please see the following article: http://www.openbeamusa.com/blog/2014/5/22/stay-classy-makerbot
The MakerFarm i3 comes with a bed leveling kit. But the heat bed leveling was still a pain in the neck as it required two hands to hold a wrench and allen for the adjustments. And there is not that much room to work. If the kit used captive nuts it would be so much easier to adjust with one hand. So I printed some corner brackets to hold the lock nuts.
The MakerFarm i3 Prusa bed leveling kit uses M3 cap heads and M3 locking nuts. The M3 locking nuts are a press fit into this corner bracket. Press the nut in from the bottom up until flush. You will need to print 3 parts. I printed them in PLA .25
