New Z-limit adjustment and leveling bed screws

Post by frankjoke »

Dear all,

I was not happy on my Felix3 with the leveling.
At first I added other screws to the bed which do not loosen themselves (see the type of screw on one of the pictures below). In the center I used it as a countersrew and left original there as well.

Anyhow, the screw to adjust the level is very close to motor and (for me) on back side not easy to reach from any side.

So I deceided to change the leveling, I downloaded z-axis-limitswitch_vane_v6_F2_0.STL and used Kisslicer to turn it around in that way that the screw is on bottom.
I used a screw I had and printed me the new leveling and a knob for the screw.
The new self printed one with the screws I added/exchanged on the bed.

Both STL files are attached as well.
