Same concept as other things (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:100128, http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:395526, http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:723748).

Just wanted to add as little pieces and volume to the printer as possible. See instructions for further info.

If you are a curious maker / "tinker" / hacker, have a look at my blog:


I used exactly one 1 meter length M8 threaded rod, cut in three pieces: 2x370mm 1x260mm

Replaced the original back-top M8 rod of your Prusa i3 with the 260mm rod. Used the other two 370mm rods as diagonals.

Additional parts:

12xM8 washers
4xM8 regular nuts
6xM8 self locking nuts

2xM5x20mm screws
2xM5 washers
2xM5 self locking nuts

4xM3x20mm screws
4xM3 self locking nuts

I think top left bracket file is corrupt, any chance of uploading a new one as this stabiliser looks just the job for my prusa

Ok, try again now.

Thanks, printed all okay
