Adapter

Postby bdring » Fri Mar 23, 2012 3:24 am

Here is the MK7 adapter. It is a piece of heat treated 6061-T6 aluminum with two PEM studs. There are two extra holes in case you want to customize it. The studs are #4-40 because the M3 are harder to get in a short time, but I will supply the nuts.

Jeremy was kind enough to test it.

The new MK7 plate is really very slick. The extruder mounts by the thermal barrier, and so eliminated having another bolt holding it in place (the bolt wasn't needed, IMO).
It's very flat, and very clean. Which is what I expected from Bart, as everything he designs is clean.
