Hi,
I was just wondering, how exactly are those washers attached to the alu plate?. I found somewhere that, they are on the bottom side.
Thank you

The washers are glued to the bottom side of the aluminium/dibond bed, yes. You should use a strong adhesive, we have tried cyanoacrylate, epoxy and Loctite 638, getting the best results with the latter.

I also leave you a diagram with the dimensions necessary to place the washers:

You can also use washers for the printed parts? Washers for the alu bed and for the printed parts, right?

Washers for the aluminium bed and magnets in the printed parts, so the bed can be attached to the X axis.
