Cool idea, I had something like this planned when I get time. Those corner holders really do suck. (Lol) Spring loaded is definitely the way to go, but I'm going to use springs from out of a kit from harbor freight. I want to try getting a strong hold. Also as a side note, on my dreamer, when I run pla I always make all of my I.D.'s (ie: holes) .200 mm larger and my O.D.'s on my x and y axis .200 mm smaller. I don't touch the z axis. That's always fine. But with abs, I tend to do the same thing, but .300 mm not .200 mm. Once again, this is just what I found works for me. But our printers are relatively close in design.

How well does it hold the glass? Doesn't move? Pen springs aren't that strong. Looking for corner mounts that hold the glass securely, but ablee to remove the glass easily after each print and swap in another piece of glass.
