    Anybody know the exact distance to use?

    Eyeballing it with a ruler is not getting me lined up like I would like on the bed holder I'm working on. The Y-tensioners can be close and still work but the rods have to be dead on. I tried 225mm and that's a bit wide, I suspect it's 220 but I thought I'd ask as opposed to printing up more guesses.

    Oh, sorry. No R1+ to measure, but someone on here will chime in.
    I can give you the numbers from a bed upgraded beta :)

    @Geoff has one if memory serves.

    Don't worry if you have to take it apart, I was just hoping someone knew what it was already. I know the earlier models used a different spacing because I tried some of those on thingiverse before setting out on my own. My only good ruler is a small 6 in machinist one, I've been trying measure this with a tape measure I had handy so I probably just need to get a better ruler or some bigger calipers.

    I think that will be fine. Send me those when you can, that will at least get me in the right neighborhood. Thanks

    Center to center of the holes or do you want different dimensions ?

    Center to center would be nice as that's what I'm using to position them in OpenSCAD but any others you think might be handy would be welcome.

    Thanks. That verifys what my measurements were. I tried a test fitting and it's close but doesn't feel quite right (probably printing tolerances).

    I tried 223 and it was too small. I think 225 is right. These are taking 6 hours each at 30% infill. I do think I'm getting close.

    I don't know about awesome either. I do get very tired of STL's on thingiverse that don't fit right. At least with the source you can tweak it if needed.

    I plan to make two versions
    - one using stock rods which will offer no expansion of y-axis
    - one using 495mm rods allowing for longer y-axis (guessing about 350mm or so)
