    Printed on:
    Printrbot - Printrbot Simple
    Works great, perfect replacement
    Works better when you orient the part so that the Z-lines are parallel to the threads on the Z-sensor. In its default position in Cura the part is weak and my first version snapped.

    Will it fit if you turn it on an angle?

    Assuming most users will be printing these components on their Printrbot Simple 1405 before disassembling it, does anybody have any idea of how we're supposed to print the Y-Axis Rod Ends? Both appear to be too long to fit on the default buildplate of a Simple Makers? Is there a way to resize it? Is it expected that we would have another printer? Or are we supposed to have it printed by somebody else?

    I actually 'pre-threaded' the ends before assembling them. They need to be a tight fit and it worked out easier to do it 'off printer'
