3D printer Y axis carriage plate replacement blueprint for standard MK3 aluminium hotbed.

The reason I had to switch the carriage plate is that I have built an enclosure and due to high temperatures inside the enclosure, the original acrylic plate deformed and became unusable.

Drawn in CAD app, ready for CNC machine. Download files from links in the video and have the plate laser-cut in a shop. I used 3mm thick steel sheet which was, with all the weight reducing cut-outs, only 70g heavier than original acrylic plate. A 2mm steel would be also sufficiet I believe. Enjoy!
