In the description you mentioned you needed a M5x12mm bolt. But when i printed it the bolt was to long. A M5x10mm bolt fitted better.
The bolt hits the frame so it cant get tighter.

Did M5x12mm really fitted your print?

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I double checked and I did use M5x12 bolts (I don't actually have M5x10 in the kit I bought). To be clear, the 12 mm bolts are used on the bottom end, with the T-nuts, where it attaches to the frame. I imagine a 10 mm bolt would work there as well.

I used the bolts for the frame with the T-nuts too. There where no M5x10 with my printer either but I bought some extra bolts for multiple purposes.
Maybe there are some differences in my print.

Funny, I just did kind of the same thing. I printed a base so it was free standing.
