Y bed improvement

Hey guys

Ive been running the mp3dp for a few weeks now. Im using zip ties on the lm8uu bearings on the y axis bed. Theres a little play/wobble that i think might be affecting the quality of my prints (vibrations maybe). Any suggestions to make the bed a little stiffer?

Print three of these and install in existing holes, they match perfectly.
Use m3 machine screws and nuts.
No more wobble!

Awesome! Appreciate the link! I think this will help a lot!

I modded mine by changing to four linear bearings in a rectangle instead of three in a triangle. The Y is so much smoother and no longer has the wiggle it had before. Before I did that I tested some graphite impregnated brass bushings, but they introduced too much drag, the belt would skip.
