Hey ... am I the only one still modding the Trinus?

Anyway ... over time, through adding of adjustable platform, heated bed, magnetic holder for a Flexplate about 22 mm got lost of my precious build space.
This called for another simple but efficient mod: Two Z axis distance pads ;-) ... made of aluminium 60x60x25mm³, holes drilled, screws M3x70 & voila:

Note that I had to omit the plastic cover of z axis steppers - the build plate wouldn't fit in between (got to print me tighter ones soon).

...made something similar, but printed in ABS as I've no access to a CNC-mill.... And I'm still modding the Trinus, trying new components (at the moment EZstick from GeckoTec), replacing cables with silicone cables (more flexible, less breaks) - but it seems that there are not a lot of people still active in the forum.

You don't need a CNC mill to drill 3 holes into a block af aluminium, do you? Just copy the holes through the base plate ... which was the reason I did it *this* way: Can't print while Trinus is disassembled 8-)

...no, for drilling 3 holes I don't need a CNC - but some flat plates of Aluminium with the right dimensions - printing is much easier ;-)
