Original+ drive nut - Missing? Wrong? Design changed?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to put together an Original+ that I just received (mostly consulting the Original+ Assembly pdf, and the wiki assembly instructions at some stages). I can't find the Z drive nut for the heated bed pictured in either the Original+ Assembly pdf or the Heated Bed Assembly pdf, only the squashed tube pictured in the wiki, for which the Original+ kit doesn't seem to have any of the wooden housing parts.

Has the design changed in some way (if so, are up to date instructions available?) or am I simply missing a part (if so, what exactly are the specs of this part, should I be able to acquire a replacement myself or will I have to get it directly from the supplier)?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
