Thank you very much for designing this.

it fit fine without the zip ties. Also with my mk8 I had to use a screw with a thinner head than the one picture to get it closer to the corner

Can you give the instructions? For the support and stuff ?

I'm not sure if I understand your question -
This piece is for the Geeetech Prusa i3 acrylic, and it slips over the top of the factory Geeetech X-axis carriage, extending it to meet with the factory mounted end stop location, but alowing a slight adjustment to the right of the X-axis so my hotend would align with the left edge of my printbed. I used small zip ties to hold it into place.

The support because, the print is in the air. If i print it, the half comes down, because we can not print in air.

I print using Repeiter print control software (w/ Slic3r embeded) - in that program it allows me to "rotate" an object along any of the 3 axis for the best positioning for a base adhesion / build angle - and then it has a "drop" and a "center" function that allows the software to place the object on plane with the printbed and center the object in the middle of the printbed (it also has a scale feature I occasionally use to increase / decrease size) - it sounds like for you this object would need to use the "rotate" and/or "drop/center" functions to position this object to print on your printbed - let me know if this helps. (I printed it on it's side, without the need for supports)
