My older XY blocks printed in PLA can't take the heat from ABS printing. So it's time to print some new ones. See YouTube Video

Materials and methods

- print %1 bigger
- 100% infill (solid
- print main part with the flat side touching the build platform and no support.
- Epoxy is used as glue. Sand bushing hole till it can be lightly pressed in. Add epoxy from the inside to keep bushing in place.
