Heated Bed Upgrade: small suggestion

Hello Ultimaker Team,

i received my heated bed kit and just stopped drooling enough to consider it safe to assemble the whole thing.

The documentation is flawless, and by the way: the packaging is really nice!

One small suggestion though:

One of the three countersunk m3X20 srews in my pack was damaged (the thread was somehow bent), so i would like to suggest that maybe for future packs you could add a fourth of those? All other screws are easily replaceable (although i didn't have to), but i could not find a countersunk one in my collection.

Other than that: very nice work! thank you!

Looking forward to put it to the test!

    Um. Between 2 and 3 hours maybe? Not longer at least. I was having some difficulties getting the guidng rods out of the frame, so that part may have slowed me down. And i was not in a hurry :-)

    I had this problem. My solution was to take the sides off just enough so I could get the top plate out. It was a bit of a pain, but not as bad as you might think. If you are really lucky, you might be even be able to do it without your XY rods sliding out of the bearings. I recommend putting tape underneath the nuts on the top panel to keep them from falling out.

    I started by removing all the screws along the top and the sides, but just loosening the screws attaching the sides to the bottom.
