I use these cloth pin spring for my build plate also. its a lot cheaper going to the dollar store buying a bag of these, then buying springs that are sold as so call bed spring and they work just as good.

it would be nice if you could make the spring and everything of plastic. no need for metal.

mmm this could be possible, but the final result would be not so strong, 3d printed pins for examples are so easy to break.

the purpose of this Drive Block is to replace the stock Makerbot Drive, and has been designed to reuse the metal components that the user already has in his old Drive. Using a metal spring coming from a Peg you can print and build in short time an upgraded full working drive.
