OrdBot Y Motor Support
by dbailey, published
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
- 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
Print (Printed with 3 perimeter passes, 0.2mm layer height, 20% infill)
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.
- Tension belt as needed!
