This is a set of Y-axis supports for the Geeetech A10 version 3. They are a very simple design, but take care of any of the movement the Y axis has on the Z axis. There are a ton of screws on these things, which may be overkill, but I figured better more than not enough.
- Geeetech A10 Version 3 Y-Axis Support.stl - Back.stl - The support for the back side

- 12 x M5 12mm button top hex screws
- 12 x M5 1mm washers
- 12 x M5 2020 extrusion T Nuts
Bill of Materials:
Put all screws through the holes, with the washer, and lightly screw on the T nuts. Keep T nuts parallel with the extrusion slots and slide into the rails. While holding pressure on the bracket, start screwing all of the screws down and tight as possible.

3D Solutech PETG
I printed the parts in PETG, but you may also use ABS. PLA will most likely not be solid enough. Print speed was at 50mm/s, with no parts fan on for maximum strength.
Depending on the accuracy of your printer, you may need to file down the M5 holes a little bit. They are exactly 5mm in diameter, to ensure there is no slack in the support. So, if your printer is a little off, the hole may be a little too tight. You want the screw to be able to slide in smoothly, with no play in the left/right or up/down direction.
