The problem seems to be with cups being to wide and the bolt could not reach the thread. (Bolt which keeps left crank attached).

How do you know that praxis is ok?

Shimano? Bolt holding left crank on? What crank are you trying to fit?

Bb30 to shimano/SRAM etc is a very common conversion lots of people make adapters. Praxis appears to be one of the best.
If yours is that far out you may be doing something wrong or have been sent the wrong part. (The plastic bolt in the left crank doesn't hold the crank on it just takes up any side to side float, the two pinch bolts hold it on)

I've seen the FSA 30 to 24 being used as standard on Boardmans and others like Felt, look at the 3rd to last pic at the bottom of this page :-
