Inconsistent M6 washers on Ultimaker Heated Bed Upgrade?

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
