I printed this, it looks great but it doesn't fit.
I thought mine was the 1405, guess not. Do you have this design for the older simple wood?

Its about the width of the rod to far.



That's my design for the older bots. There are no screw holes or anything, but it should work great!

It fits my 1405 , and It looks to keep everything solid. only problem is I get ripples along the Z axis on my models. Maybe the rods need to be free in order to dampen the wobble of the acme rod?

Not every printer needs this, it's sort of a 50/50 shot as to whether it will help or not!

Mine didn't fit at first, but I haven't been getting great prints. But, 5 min with Mr. Dremmel, and it did.

Is your printer calibrated? There should be no reason that it doesn't fit.
