I have purchased a replacement bed for my 3D printer. I wish to have it mounted on a single linear rail.
Currently I am unable to drill properly into aluminum (due to problems with my drill).
Therefore, I'd like to print and use an adapter piece/plate to fasten the Y-carriage to the linear rail block. The bed has a thermal insulation foam so the area around the bottom of the Y-carriage plate/bed assembly doesn't seem to go over 60 °C.
My question is:
- Which material should I use for this adapter piece, and why? (I have access to PLA, PETG and ABS.)
- Should I use threaded inserts or fasten the Y-carriage with nuts?
Please see the image below to have an idea as to what I mean by an adapter.
