    There are several designs on Thingiverse but I was wandering which one would be better for the robo3d r1?

    How I got in this situation::eek:
    I got too spray happy with the Aqua Net and got a part stuck. Then I broke the bracket chiseling it off. In fairness I do print a lot and it was bound to happen. I thought I would break the glass before the bracket.

    I found a lot of designs and luckily they fit in my Da Vinci at an angle. Since I have to do this anyway I thought I would get some excellent opinions first on which is a better design.

    Thanks in advance

    It prints nicely to scale. I had no trouble fitting the parts.
    In one case I did the entire thing (replaced the bed on a Beta) and the other times just replacing broken parts for folks.

    Just one more thing does anyone have a good source for:
    8x 3/8" (10mm) x 1/8" (3mm) neodymium magnets

    They seem to be hard to find.
    I am back to printing using a couple of rubber bands to hold one end of the glass down.
    Broke in the morning. Printed new part up and running in the evening. This is why I love this hobby.
