Do these work without doing the bottom mount control panel?

Thanks for sharing.
Do you know why it is angled (as opposed to horiontal) in the first place from Prusa's side?

Best regards

If it's horizontal, your max Z height is reduced, as the bowden tube curves too sharply at the heighest levels.

Have you tried any brackets which tip forward?

They won't help with my spool holder locations as my spools are behind the printer on the same shelf about 40-50cm behind the printer as recommended by Prusa.

thanks for sharing the fusion360 file. very nice =)

Thanks for the mention and I can see these being useful for my design, especially since dropping the MMU a bit will enable the reverse bowden tube to bend at a larger radius. Does it also make it easier to access the cables?

If cables is the wiring - its has the same access.
If cables is the bowden tubes or filament, then your underslung control board mount makes that awesome.

What it does for me is it allows me to access the unit better, when its opened up, as my Prusa is sideways in my shelving unit as i can see in it better. plus the bowden tubes seem to have less curvature in them - hence less friction. I finally got some pictures of it installed uploaded.
