Wanhao i3 v2.1 i3Plus Maker Select Balco 4mm Aluminium Y Carriage Plate Upgrade
This upgraded plate fixes one of the biggest issues with trying to level the bed on the Wanhao Duplicator i3, Maker Select and many other i3 format 3d Printers.
The plate that comes with the machines from new is thin and eventually warps and twists due to the many heat cycles... a bit like a cheap baking tray! With an upgraded plate, the added strength prevents the plate from being twisted by the stronger heated bed making bed leveling a nightmare!
This plate is 4mm aluminium and is actually LIGHTER than standard which also has the added benefit of reducing the mass being moved on the Y carriage to further improve your prints.
- Wanhao Duplicator i3 V2.1
- Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus
- Balco 3D Printer
- Malyan M150
- Monoprice Maker Select V2
- Monoprice Maker Select Plus
...plus the majority of i3 style clones which share parts with the above machines!
Fitting is super easy on the Duplicator v2.1 not even requiring any removal of wiring and only requires some basic skills on the i3 Plus style machines.
Note: The video shows our v1 plate (which had two oval holes) but this listing is for our v2 plate (one oval, one rectangle) which has a larger opening for the wiring to pass through on the i3 Plus machines and is also lighter. Fitting is exactly the same. Note that on the Wanhao v2.1 there is no need to remove ANY wiring as it does not pass through the build plate.
