All the Hero Me base and other parts are all now set for using M3 screws. The slots are purposely tight in the parts cooling ducts to keep them strong and not break. M3 screws can be threaded through the slots of the cooling duct mount pegs and into the base. An Xacto knife can be used to widen the slots as needed. The whole X carriage does not have to be removed for the Ender 5 printer as the Hero Me Ender 5 base Gen3 version no longer has a tongue that protrudes the slot in the back plate. It has a separate lock file that can optionally be used to secure the base from behind. The holes for M3 screws should line up above and below the X gantry 2020 aluminum crossbar.
