Its the exact same issue with the Mini Gladiola versions. The parts add up too tall and the washers are all angled. Support is complete crap for the issue, it annoyed me so much I just put it back in box and dont even use it. But my experience with the taz modular bed isnt much better for my taz 5, abs adhesion is complete crap.

Chuck

I made some Stand offs please have a look at the pictures but my finding are thought provoking, making the spacers did work but I think a better way would be to remake the printed parts allowing for the 1 mm reduction,, the spacers I made all were within 0.10 but some of the 16mm washers did not tighten down and I could slide a bit of paper beneath the surface of the bed and the underside of the washer, I packed under the bed and the printed stand off,,, I think the printed parts could be made to suit the plate and keeping the 10mm stand offs, which I think in the long run would be better,, in case there are any other mods that Lulzbot might introduce or even any of the heads you might want to fit. I printed a test piece out the plate performed well... I am going to redraw the pieces in coming week, if you have no cad facilities I can send you the STL.. I think it was printed in nGen Flex I could be wrong.. let me know your thoughts

2 hrs into a 4hr print and there's a sag in the heater plate approx. 1mm gap in the centre,, and yes before anyone asks I made sure the plate was sitting well in the raised blocks.

I made the Stoff 11mm but I have modified the corners with an extra 1mm off the ledge that holds the plate and heater plate if anyone wants to try them

I made a set like that last week with TPU @0.15mm layers and replaced the OEM corners. Installing the modular bed went a lot easier, the washers laid level first try, without having to fuss with loosening and tightening the corners to get it all to set correctly. Bonus was not having the sensation that the glass was going to break as I tightened the screws.
