Z-X Axis Stabilizer Bar for Monoprice MP Select Mini


So I made something else for my wonderful little printer. Well I made an existing thing better I should say, it’s a remix of another part, but it’s really a new part altogether now. It’s a stabilizer bar for the Z and X axis of the Mp Select Mini but only if you’ve upgraded the bed which I’ve done.

Here’s some more pics of the parts and it installed:

zx3 zx4

I very much liked the original stabilizer bar design but I didn’t need space for LEDs and I found the bar a bit too thin and flexible for my liking so I decided to beef it up a bit as I didn’t fell it really added any real support.
I thickened up the bar first but then decided to do the same with the small bracket as well to make it match.
It was labeled as an x-axis stabilizer bar but now it’s more for both Z and X but you need to use other parts to be printed and bought, like LM6UU bearings.
Please note this bar can really only be printed on the 4DM Brutus bed and it has to be positioned diagonally on the bed, but it fits fine that way.

You can find it here over on Thingiverse, the STL files to print and more details:  https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2507095

Here’s my first print, it’s the demo that came with the printer, a little robot:


EPSON WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One Printer Review

"It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing any all-in-one printers, or at least high end ones. For review today I have the latest WorkForce or I should say workhorse from Epson called the WP-4540 that is a beast of a machine in more ways than one. The WP-4540 is full of features like the ability to hold over 500 sheets of paper ready for all of your printing needs. This printer is fast and relatively inexpensive in terms of cost per print and it prints beautifully whether you’re printing plain black and white for family photographs.  "
