Inconsistent M6 washers on Ultimaker Heated Bed Upgrade?

Posted · Inconsistent M6 washers on Ultimaker Heated Bed Upgrade?

Hey all,

I've recently received my Heated Bed Upgrade for the original Ultimaker, and during the installation, I ran into an issue with the washers that go with the thumb screws underneath the springs. One of them looks exactly as described in the instructions (thick, with a rounded side), but the other two are thin and flat (see attached picture). I proceeded to build with those anyway, greasing and installing the flat ones on the front (with the single rounded one on the back).

I expect this to not be a biggie (haven't had time to do the firmware upgrade and testing), but is there anything I'm missing? Should I replace them with proper washers? If so, how would I go about getting those?

Thanks!

Don't use the flat ones. The curved it's to make the movement easier.

Thanks for the feedback. I've contacted my local (UK) reseller, and they're sending me replacement parts.
