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 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:106163
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

Remove Y motor and insert 2 M5 t nuts into bottom of maker slide.
Re-attach motor with stock plate.
Nest motor cables in recessed slot of the support and fasten to rail with m5 10mm bolt.
