Offsets for Bl Touch ??

It is shown in the Images.
Y=0 / X=34,2 mm

Hmm is not Offset only full integer value ?

In Marlin and Smoothie decimals are no problems - Just Go for 34.0

I have a problem with this design. The fan is hitting the X endstop support.
Has anyone the same issue?


Yes, same problem here with the original endstop.
I'm going to print yours as I have no clue what is wrong unless the noctua fan is somewhat bigger.
The original endstop fits perfectly on the rail.

Sorry to hear. This seems kind of odd to me. As shown in the thingyverse pictures this should work and my own fits as well -> see attached image
I'm using a 2020 extrusion and the rail is sitting centered - like the endstop support.
The farthest edge of my support is ~5mm away from the extrusion

Endstop-STL I used down below

Thank you for you reply.
I also use a 2020 extrusion.
The weird thing is every screws and nuts fit perfectly with their holes.
Is your endstop different from the original?

It looks different at first glance. This is the file I downloaded quite some time ago when i build the BLV MOD
Compare your STL-file with this one.

These STL files are the same.
Could you please confirm some measurements?
Cover: 65.5 x 49.2 x 35.5 - Base: 45 x 47.5 x 49.2
These are what I have with Cura and printed.
Thank you.

Base: 45 x 47.5 x 49.20 in Simplify3D
Cover: 65.5 x 35.5 x 49.2 also S3d

This seems to be correct

offset for the bltouch Y and X?

Have a look at the given pictures

I dont suppose you'd be willing to upload a STEP-file for the BLT less cover? Would save me A LOT of time,

I hope it is now everything online that might help

Thank you! This saves me HOURS of work!

hello, I have igus tw-04-12 guides, the holes do not match, you can put the file to modify it with solid, I get blocked when trying to edit it.
Thank you

Uploaded a STEP-file "Basis.step" - this can be edited in SE/SW :)

I have remade this part using the stl files as a guide and made it a bit more like the original mk3. I will upload it as a remix when I have some time this week. If I forget it, please remind me with a reply to this comment :)

This is exactly what I was looking for, awesome! Tried to design this myself, but got stuck.. Mind providing the step files? :)

Sorry for answering late, everything is up

the screw holes for the belts are missing :(

No they are not.
Look hat how BLV did it or use a belt holder, like this one im using by myself-> https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2746489
It goes through the base directly into the MGN12 carrier

X Belt Holder for mgn 12 mod of Anet AM8 / A8

so they are missing but not needed ^^
u may link it in ur description

Comments deleted.

Ah now i get what's the problem ^^ I rejected the original belt holder very quick and totally forgot about those 2 holes
Good point i will link it

u may do a version without bl ?

added a cover without blt ;)

Great work my friend !!!!
Really liked it!!
