OrdBot Y Motor Support by dbailey Jun 20, 2013

Description

I wanted to create a simple support for the Y axis motor since the 1.5 mm plate was bending under belt tension. Works in combination with the stock plate. No interference with the V wheels as the part is the same width as the maker slide.

Designed to work with my Y Support foot thingiverse.com/thing:106163

* Note this part has been dimensioned specifically for the standard Nema 17 Stepper motor which comes with the current RepRapDiscount Kit. (Motor Height should measure 39 mm high from base to top motor cap) Please measure before printing.

As requested I have added a support designed for the automationtechnologies kit with their 47 mm high motor. I did not have the motor to physically dimension so please let me know if it doesn't work!

Please comment below if you need additional sizes

THANKS! That will work perfectly. I'll let you know when I get it printed.
Managed to find a rough drawing of your motors. Try it out and fingers crossed it doesn't need any changes!
Should be easy enough! I would be happy to put up a support for this size. If you could measure the exact height of the motor, as well as the height of the base cap. (To ensure the arms fits nicely)

Instructions

1. Print (Printed with 3 perimeter passes, 0.2mm layer height, 20% infill)

2. Remove Y motor and insert 2 M5 t nuts into bottom of maker slide.

3. Re-attach motor with stock plate.

4. Nest motor cables in recessed slot of the support and fasten to rail with m5 10mm bolt.

This is an awesome and beautiful design! Problem is that is only works with the RepRapDiscount kits - I've got an Automation Tech kit and it ships with 47mm length motors. How hard would it be to modify?
