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

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

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)?

    On my 3 umo+ the z drive nut was always with the z motor, inserted on the long screw. If you don't have it there I would contact your shop. Or support.ultimaker.com

    On umo+ you need this z nut

    Seems the Z motor setup has changed in a number of ways - the screw I had was much thicker than that used in the Original+, for instance.

    Got a new Z-motor/screw and lead nut from the seller and moved on to progressively more frustrating issues.
