    I have just modified it slightly by removing fan’s mounting points, cutting away side of the board and adding 2 mounting points for my frame clips. Depends on the location on the frame, FULL or FLAT clip may be used.

    Then I have labelled all the connectors (X-Y-Z axis, Extruder, X-Y-Z end stops, Fan, 2 heaters and 2 temperature sensors:

    In the next step I have removed the board completely and mounted it on the printed base:

    Then I have added 2 of my previously designed clips and mounted the base on the printer’s frame:

    After routing all the wires and connecting all the connectors I have ended up with this:
