    I can only confirm, received the same piece, only toubles. The only solution to put the old one back.

    superhans You are correct, the guide completely skips this step, and I was curious where this went, I presumed it was a heat guard to be placed somewhere else. It wasn't until I scrolled down to your comment that I realized what the bracket was. The one I received is the one with the cutouts on the side. In addition, it looks like they addressed the bump issue on the inside by simply grinding it flat. Notch is still there (presume for strength), but ground flat (half hazardly mind you) to sit flush. 

    Also, my kit didn't include the 10-pin flat ribbon cable, which connects to the main board. I've already ordered one from a 3rd party, as I didn't feel like waiting for support, to ship one. Though support is generally great, so no knock there, I'm just impatient :)

    Sorry, to pick this up again. I received a replacement bracket a couple months ago, but it was the same as the one that came with the printer originally. The mounting bracket that came with the heatbed upgrade is quite different, material-wise and with the cut-outs. I wondered, but didn't think much of it.

    Now, I just browsed the Tiertime shop for some parts and I stumbled upon the heatbed upgrade offering and the product photos show the exact same bracket with that dent in the same position as the one I received with my heatbed upgrade order (https://shop.tiertime.com/product/heated-bed-for-cetus-mk3-china-stock/ - I don't recall if those photos were present when I ordered). I'm confused now, is the bracket with the cut-outs on the side and the dent the right one to use with the heated bed? (likely for thermal reasons) And how am I supposed to mount it flat on the guide block? The guide skips this step entirely.

    I designed a simple 1.5 mm thick spacer to compensate the dent between the guide block and the bracket. It works well enough, I hope also long term. You'll find the model here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3672758

    @Jason Thanks for this detailed guide, that answered most of my questions!

    I have one remaining issue with a new bracket to mount the platform to (that was part of the package). I suppose it has better properties regarding heat resistance and/or absorption compared to the original one.

    My problem is the little dent in the fold (that looks intentional) does not allow it to be attached evenly and firmly onto the guide block. Should there be a spacer underneath to make up for the dent and also insulate the heat from the guide block?

    Sorry for the defective part, it supposed to be flat on the surface. We have shipped a few of these, anyone got the part and not fitting could contact us for an replacement.

    So the white cable replaced the yellow connector. I could have saved some $40 by buying a 3rd party power supply, but I figured Tiertime offer excellent support so I'll give them a little more business by buying the 220W power module. :D
