Thank you for this, it definitely seems to have made an improvement to my prints :-D

I'm very happy!

I have 2 questions, first, what of the two stl should I choose? What is the difference between the closed one and the open one?

second, I read down here that the Z axis doesnt line up with the original holes, what holes do you mean, the one from upper acrilic or what?

I created open one to have an ability to install it without removing top brackets (they hold a smooth rod and threaded one).
If it's no problem for you to remove top brackets, you can choose closed one.
This bracket is lined up with acrylic Geeetech Prusa I3.

Wow. This made a HUGE difference in my print quality. I'm actually happy with the way prints look now. For anyone who owns a Geeetech Prusa I3, this is a must-have! Easy to print, easy to install.

Thank you for this great Thing, ronindev.

I'm very glad to hear it!

Thanks for making this thing.....

But people really need to start adding detail to the instructions on how to install and what other components are required to fit it or at the very least the dimensions of the thing such as

  1. space between the treaded rod hole and the smooth rod hole
  2. length of the thing

As I have now wasted an hour to find out it doesnt fit and I need to print off another part - which I cant do as the printer is in bits

I hope you see where I am coming from.

Thanks again for the thing though

Really sorry about your confusion.
I do this thing for my geeetech acrylic i3b, so I believe that any other data is no need to provide.
I added some more info. Thank you

Always check what you have downloaded in Sketchup at the very least, thought this would be obvious? You wouldn't download a program without running it through anti-virus would you???

thanks ronindev, I'm printing now (after checking sizes first)

hey i just went to install these and noticed that it doesn't line up with the original holes. On your picture it dosen't either. Have you just got it z axis sitting freely?

Yes.. It's the main idea to make z-axis sitting freely. XZ-axis just laying on this brackets and no wobble making sense to the axis

Wow, I just got done installing something almost exactly like these that I designed for my printer. Nice idea ;)

Anti-wobble and anti backlash are 2 totally different things. Just saying- deceptive title. I know you didn't mean it that way but for folks searching it matters.

Thank you very much, now I noticed difference! And sorry for that mistake. I just stole title from another thing, like that http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:220037
