Sorry, LM12UU would require some bigger changes to the model and the CAD is a mess. You can try it yourself though, I shared the file in another comment.

Would you be willing to share the parametric files? I am making my HyperCube with cheaper MakerBeam 1515 extrusion and it uses m3 screws. I am worried the M3s wont be strong enough connection, and having this print and connect on multiple sides would be a safe play. Thanks!!

Absolutely, I can share the original Fusion 360 files. Which version do you want? LM8UU?

LM10UU if you have it, save me some time. Thanks!!

I haven't printed this, but it doesn't look there would be room to add a knob to the bed leveling screw.

You're right. It uses the standard HyperCube bed frame size and it simply doesn't have room for a knob unless you change the design a lot. If you want a knob you can make your bed frame slightly smaller and remix the bed support part to make it stick out further. You could also simply mount the bed support upside down if your screws are long enough.

Since I already have the files and it's all parametric I made an example for you. If you use this instead of the other bed support (and make your bed frame 30mm more narrow) you should be able to use most knobs.

It would be great if you could make one for 10mm rods with LM10UU bearings.

Okay, one version for LM10UU bearings added. I haven't tested it, so please report back so I know how it worked!
