I have a Shapeoko 3 Sparkfun Edition. When trying to mount a Suckit Dust Boot, I noticed that my SO3 seems to be missing a cover plate that sits in front of the top Z-Axis pulley and is connected to the Z-Axis base plate via four 1" Standoffs. My SO3 has only the lower two of these standoffs.
What is the reason for this plate and should I re-create one? If so, are there CAD drawings of that plate?
