    Description

    If you want to turn your Anycubic i3 Mega into a vinyl cutter/plotter, then you can use this mount to do so! Mounting it requires my universal mount for the Anycubic i3 Mega: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3869322

    You need a spring that allows the drag knife to move up and down ever so slightly, in case the bed isn't perfectly level. For this, I used a hot bed leveling spring, which you can get here: https://bit.ly/32x7qjq (I bought the Type A in blue).

    For the drag knife holder, I bought this set: https://bit.ly/33NtkiI, which includes the holder and several different knives. Depending on what type of cuts you want to make, the knife needs to have a certain angle.
