Include a heatbed spacer in MK3 spare parts

Seems like this would be a good candidate for the spare parts bag... the 6x6x3t heatbed spacer.

We lost track of one due to a build error. When we aligned the spacer before screwing in the M3x14b screw, must have unknowingly been aligning along the outside of the spacer instead of through the hole. It must have eventually wiggled loose through printing, and fell out at some point, unnoticed. We searched the spare parts bag (and all other leftover hardware), but could not find a spare.

This part is referenced in in the manual: Original Prusa i3 MK3 kit assembly v3.02 / Guide 7. Heatbed & PSU assembly (textile sleeve)[/b]

Agreed. We had to check multiple times to insure that we had 'captured' each spacer with the screw.

Susan, if you are in the US then Amazon has something that looks like it will work. $4.60 for 10 w/free prime shipping.

Yeah. I lost one and have been searching. My fault but so frustrating.
