XYM module for Maxifab 3D printer. X motor version. This is a replacement for the multipart lasercut assembly that comes with the kit. I had to make this part after a plywood part broke that holds the belt bearings after I put it together and took it apart multiple times.


It looks like I need to slightly adjust some hole locations and the depth of the rod holder so don't print this just yet.

I printed this with two walls and 25% infill with a raft. I don't know if 25% was necessary, but it did not hurt. I oriented it with the side that has 3 closely spaced bold holes down. Printing in ABS on a Replicator resulted in a part with a slight split and a slight warp, however, it does not seem to have caused a problem with the printer.

I am uploading two versions. XYM Module and XYM module mod. I printed the XYM module version and am using it in the printer. It was based on measurements from the plywood version. After assembly with the motor switches and bearings, I modified the design very slightly to make it easier to attach the motor,
