Steel Sheet holes on shorter distance

Hi,

I just assembled my Prusa i3 MK3S+ device, and wanted to make a first print. But, the steel sheet doesn't match to the hot bed - distance between screws on the hot bed is 145 mm, and distance between holes on my steel sheet is 140 mm. OK, I can make a new hole, but this is just a work arround...

Best Answer by Baklin:

You have the sheet the back to front. That pins on the heatbed line up with the slots at the back.

 

That text on the sheet should readable when it is placed correctly.

 

Have a look at page 13 in the hand book. https://cdn.prusa3d.com/downloads/manual/prusa3d_manual_mk3s_en.pdf

FYI - Those holes are used during the manufacturing of the sheets. I recall they're used to hang them for drying. The notches are used for actual printing.
