i have a question about the original prusa trapezoid nut.
I just don't want to wait 6 weeks for the aliexpress shipping to arrive.
Is it really impossible to use the stock A8 trapezoid nut?

I just found https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3312401. You don't need to source for Original Prusa i3 trapezoidal nuts. Just print the adapter and attach stock a8 trapezoidal nuts to it.

Hi, this mods requires prusa trapezoidal nut. stock A8 has a different dimension and it won't fit.

You can print one if you want. I myself just found it, thanks to you for asking this question. Here's the link https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1903200

Wow, that was fast, thank you...
2nd question: is it possilble to use your A8BAS with this mod?

(i'm currently re-working my A8 with your mods, your work is absolutely impressive...)

Hi, I'm pleased to inform you that I have upload the updated CARRIAGE.stl for A8BAS. It is compatible with both 45 & 46mm X smooth rod spacing/distance. Check it out at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3088060. I hope that I'm not too late.

I just realize that I have a lot of rework to do. I myself want to incorporate https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3599905 with this. but realize that the x-smooth rod distance is not the same. A8BAS & https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3599905 was 46mm whilst this mod is 45mm. Thank you for raising this question.
