Hi !
After installing those, my calibration won't pass the XYZ step, is it because the bed is higher ?
How could I solve that ? :/


yes the bed is higher. Which Printer do you have. Perhaps ypu can send me a Picture. Do you Use Auto Bed Leveling?

Best Regards Markus

My mistake, I have a MK3...
So when I switched back to the U-rings it worked perfectly :)

Will these work for X axis as well?

It works for any axis you want ;)

okay thanks, just making sure since the summary said "Y bushing" =P

does anyone tried this mount with the Igus drylin RJ4JP-01-08?

and, once installed this mount, is it needed a Z offset or is a straight replacement?


I printed in PLA, 50% fillin, .3 mm, the printer improve the resolution. Thnkx

Would you include a step file? It would be nice to check things out virtually.

Hi, Great bearing mount!
Regarding the dimension in the last image, 19.477mm.
What is the distance of center of the bearing (where the + is placed) to the mount surface?

I have completed the drawing as requested ;)

Hi does anyone know if these fit the original prusa mk2?

I made a modified corner for the MK2 cause the bearing mount was hitting it.

Prusa i3 MK2 Y-Corner

it wont, bearing on Y axis fits directly into cut on y corner. also you would probably run into problems with Y endstop.
you will have to modify whole Y axis, but its worth it in my opinion.

Added 2 drawings in order to help you.

same question here :-)

I don't understand? Same question where?

That's fine, I'll try my MK2. Thank you !

Beautiful design, thanks!
I made new Y belt holder which takes into account frame height added by bearing mount. See

Good work!
I think it's a must for prusa i3 rework.



Thank you Roberto ;)

Super quality part! I've got two i3 Prusa Originals & they fit absolutely perfectly! Great job on the CAD.

My Y axis is WAY more solid with these compared to the zip ties. M3 nuts fit perfectly into the part and I used M3 x 12 screws to mount.

Printed in PLA @ .2 layer height. Three of them at once (for one machine) took 2.5hrs @ 35mm/s using Cura. Came out spot on.


You're welcome 3DSUser !

Thanks for the comment ;)

Nice design.
What software did you use to design it? Could you upload the source file? I need to edit the hole position because one of my holes on th aluminum bed is not on the correct spot.
Thank you

Hi ionniskar,
I use DSM (DesignSpark Mechanical). It's free and an amasing powerfull tool !!!

I have uploaded the source file (LM8UU bushing.rsdoc)


Are you using a pirated version of designspark? On their site I don't see a free verison

"Pirated software" aren't "free software".
