This Heated Build Platform (HBP) wire guide is a derivative of DNewman's derivative of my HBP Wire Guide: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:15327

This derivative has one improvement over it's ancestor, an anti-twist bar to prevent the HBP Guide from moving left to right.


  1. Print the part.
  2. Locate and mark any desired holes to be drilled -- you can use a M3 bolt running horizontally through a vertical cross member (Jetty's original design) or a vertical M3 bolt running through the horizontal wooden platform.
  3. Drill the hole(s).
  4. Slip each part around the wires.
  5. Meld the two halves together using acetone or other solvent or glue them using a glue.
  6. Slide the guide onto the build platform.
  7. Bolt down with a M3 bolt and nut (you may need to use pliers to squeeze the nut into its hole in the guide if using a vertical bolt through the horizontal platform).
