I bought the screws you show, but they don’t fit. Did I need to print this bigger than 100%?

Hi, instead of petg material, how about PLA material? is it ok for this item?

In PLA it can work, but PETG is more chemically stable.

I would suggest spray paint to protect it from UV light, otherwise very good idea.

I couldn't get this thing to level at all. When ever i tried doing up the locking screws it pulled the plate slightly up.
Went back to the stock ball joint

You are the only person to whom that problem happens. You will have put the screws wrong or you will have forced them.

Here you have a remix with nuts. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3523368

anycubic photon ez level with screws

Any reason I can't print this in resin on the Photon?

Well, this will probably crack during tightening, Unless you use some expensive resin that is gonna take forever to print, I think it is better idea to print this with FDM

Curious as to why you suggest printing on FDM. Why not on Photon?

hi there!
is there a chance you could upoad the f3d file?
or could you redesign it (if it isn't too much to ask) to use M5 instead of m4 screws?

You can aesily modify It with Tinkercad.

I'll give it a go, thanks =)

Just one question, you said the 4 side screws are M4 but the ones on 3dgarage.shop are M2.5 ?
I guess this probably doesn't matter since there are no screw holes for them to go into on the side of the stock part and the screws are just to stop any sideways movement ?
Also, are there not 8 x M3 screws needed ?

My piece does not have any dimension similar to the piece of 3dgarage.shop. I designed it from the beginning. The side holes were made of metric M4.
You only need 1xM6 to join the piece to the base of a photon, 4xM3 30-35mm to move the base and 4xM4 10mm to leave the base fixed in the correct position.

That's what I thought. The diagram you added explains it perfectly, thanks.

This is so Catch 22. How do you even print this without a levelled plate? LOL

Use an FDM printer, or ask a friend to print one out for you. Just please avoid 3DHubs due to their negative involvement within the community.

Thank you for your work.
But i don't understand where is the position of 1 M6 20mm?

The M6 screw would screw into the hole where the grub screw goes. 20mm is way to short though, the 6mm screw needs to be 30mm long.

Eres un grande!!! EasyZ a tope :D

Haha, ur my hero. I knew it wouldn't take long until somebody would redesign this over-expensive 30 USD piece. Cheers mate :-D

I think the same. That's why I made the piece.
