    Anyone know if there is a catalog online where we can look up the parts of the base unit? I have an R1 from back in the day and I need the piece the motors and extruder attach too and sit on the carriage. It is where you put the set screws for the heat sync into. My threads stripped out finally and I cannot hold the sync in place anymore. I tried customer service but they are not sure what I am talking about. I'm it is the part where the red box is drawn. I need the whole assembly

    I'm sure on of us can print it for you, where are you located and whoever is closer can print it. You'd just be responsible for shipping costs.

    I always suggest (and I think it is in the FAQ thread) print what you can for spares while the printer works :)

    I saw them on EBay and Amazon too. Some people printed them and are selling them. If the only issue is that the screw holes are stripped, then you have other options instead of replacing the entire assembly. You could use slightly larger screws or plastic anchor inserts to get the machine running then print a new assembly.

    Yep, good idea.
