ok I downloaded the Flex Wedge from the Mark 2 Git Hub Sight and printed in in N-Gen Flex I fitted it to the UM2

as you can see it wont fit,, am I being dim hear ?? I measured it against the STD Wedge

the centre height of the 3 mill screw is 7.27 from base on flex wedge and 6.28 on std wedge a difference of 1mm how is this supposed to fit??? any help I don't particularly want to re print as the UM2 is now in bits..

    If i remember right the flex-wedge was contributed by someone who owns a printer with a slightly thinner top panel.

    That's probably the reason...

    I would just mount the standard wedges, it works like a charm on my printer (for years now).

    thanks for explaining, I managed to get the 3mm screw in BUT the amount of tension that is on the dock is concerning!! I will re print the std wedges in flex, and throw the STL Flex wedge in the Bin.
