Forgot to post my 'thanks' a few weeks ago, but this was my first ABS print -- figured it'd flex better than PLA. It's a truly impressive spring. :)

Haven't taped mine down yet, though -- thinking about using velcro tape, in case I need to remove it for a really tall print, but haven't procured any yet. About 95% of the time, not being attached works just fine, and my bed doesn't normally drop anyway. Though for that ca. 1% case where the spring isn't in place AND the bed drops, assuming I'm within earshot when the print ends, it lets me know it's one of the rare exceptions. :shock:

Changing my world, one print at a time

Thanks Vprints,

To be honest, I've never attached mine as the machine is very stable and the spring has not moved.
