Used for attaching an lm8uu linear bearing to a heated bed.


Use a block of insulating wood between the bed and the holder to prevent the holder from softening.

Again, use a cable tie to make sure the bearing is held firmly.

I use 3 of these for to support the bed.

The holder is attached to the block with 2 countersunk wood screws.

The block is attached to the bed with a single countersunk wood screw.

This means that it is self aligning and there is no need for precision drilling.

Holy crap dude, is that an oven heating element! your Mad! :)

Printed and tested several LM8UU holders, this one does not break and is unobtrusive. Used it in an X-carriage mod. 8-)

Hey Greg, I love your work. Everything you design has a home on my bot.

I believe that you are missing a SCAD file here; the file gregs-y-axis-holder.scad refers to gregs-lm8uu-holder.scad, but I cannot find it.

Sorry about that. I have added the file. You can find my most recent updates here: https://github.com/GregFrost/PrusaMendelhttps://github.com/GregFrost/P.... Thingiverse is a poor place to host an evolving design.

nice iron usage. Gotta get to some garage sales!

That dark purple plastic looks awesome.
