Y-Axis Bracket for Solidoodle 2
by chuckmurray, published
This bracket replaces the somewhat flimsy stock piece for the Solidoodle 2. My factory brackets were both cracked and due to the lack of stability, it was causing poor accuracy/repeatability in the y-axis.
The overkill bracket is an even beefier piece. Both work. I've got one of each installed right now.
You will most likely need to readjust the y-axis belt tension when you install this bracket. You may also want to install a longer M3x0.5 button head cap screw because the bracket is thicker than the stock piece. The stock 8mm long cap screw will work but a 10mm cap screw will ensure full thread engagement in the case. I rounded off the hex on one of the stock cap screws when I removed it (they used Loctite at the factory), so I needed to make a hardware store trip anyway.
