Hello,
I printed it, but the support is crooked, it leans. I printed it flat. I do not understand what happened and I have just acquired my Ender 3.
Thank you for your reply

I suggest you check out the remixes, I think there have been some changes to power supplied Creality use since I created this.

Yah bummer, doesn't really fit. Puts my PSU at an angle. Was a real pain to get bolts in. It fits but I'm going to remove it.

was the height of the screw holes correct? and just the horizontal positioning that was wrong? If so then I can fix, but it seems like the holes in the PSU must have changed location.

It's ok my psu is no longer attached but height was fine. The mounting was off to one side

does not work. screws do not fit in PSU

@skipfpv it's possible that you have a different revision of the Ender three, check out the remixes.

Do not work. I missed 7m filament....

Does this work on the Meanwell psu? Also, I have dual Z, single motor. As I can't screw the psu from the front through extrusion (obvs) I can't see how people are using this when it's 5mm shorter? Scratches head lol. I mean, the PSU is hanging off the end of the extrusion?? E3PRO Nov2018. Thanks!

Sorry I have no means to test this as I only have an earlier model Ender 3.

Just printed this thing but the holes are too small for the default screws my Ender3 came with.

Yes, thats mentioned in the description:
"The bolt holes are 3mm so you will need to drill them a bit larger."

Already drilled and installed. Fits perfectly. Thanks!

Curious why it was designed so that we need to drill out the holes? Maybe I'm missing an important part of the design but why not size for M4 screws in the first place?

Model updated, hole size is correct now.

Simply an oversight on my part, and designed in tinkercad, so hard to change, I had an idea yesterday on how to reduce the material required so I plan to redesign using Fusion 360 on the weekend, and will fix the hole size then.

Hi, I printed your 10-14 version - thank you.

One suggestion and one showstopping issue (not your fault).

1) Suggestion: If the screw holes are meant to be for screw threads to grip, it would be perfect! Not sure if you intended that. But I think maybe through-holes (a tiny bit bigger) may be better for this application so one can snug up the bracket to the psu. No matter, I used the screw to eat through and make my own through holes.

2) Showstopper: Creality apparently did not consistently mount these PSUs at the same height! Mine sits lower than yours apparently. See Pic.

Which version of the ender do you have?

I have the earlier ones. No flex bed, single sided Y-axis tensioner, offset Y axis wheels.

mine has the flex bed

Comments deleted.

As discussed on Facebook, this thing solved the same issue with me. Thanks a lot!
Question: would it be possible to make the base a bit shorter? Steeper slope. I want to install the second Z-Axis mod https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2992795 and for that I need 5mm clearance between Extrusion and Powersupply. Still I have that broken thread in the PS and I need something like your thing but 5mm shorter on the base. Appreciate your help and time!

Ender 3 Dual Z axis with single stepper.

Arminth, shorter version now added. enjoy

That was fast! Couldn't even reply to your first question! :)
Thanks mate! Will try it today, when my ball bearings arrive!

I assume that means I got it right :)

Absolutely right! Perfect!!!

Hi Arminth, I don’t quite follow what you mean can you restate or make an image that’s shows clearly for me?

Ah, I think I know what you mean, i’ll post a new story tomorrow

This is great thanks for the design, very useful as the psu move around too much

Mine needs this as the case for the PSU is sagging. Can it be slipped in after the printer has been assembled?

Yes, you remove the endcap from the extrusion and the 2 bolts on the black cover of the PSU, slide this in and then do the bolts back up through this part. and replace the endcap.
